Sensor data feeds from all 50 states and dozens of countries drive projects ranging from visualizations to interactive graphing of impacts on traffic, energy, climate and infrastructure
LAS VEGAS September 15, 2020 — Terbine, the largest system of IoT data sourced from public infrastructure and the physical world, today announced the opening of its online Application Showcase. The Showcase provides examples of how sensor data aka Internet of Things (IoT) data can be utilized across a wide variety of applications intended to inspire business, academic and governmental uses.
“We often get asked how exactly sensor-generated data can be made useful in commercial and governmental applications,” said David Knight, Terbine Founder & CEO. “By showcasing an array of visualizations, interactive demonstrations, analytics and other projects, we hope to inspire uses in financial services, insurance, smart cities, utilities, transportation, public safety and other key sectors.”
Crowdsourced & Open Source
Projects found within the Showcase have been produced by individuals, ranging from corporate analysts and data scientists to graduate students and even hobbyists. All are built using IoT data feeds sourced from Terbine including those which received awards in the Global IoT Datathon, which challenged students worldwide to develop novel uses for infrastructure-derived sensor data. In some applications, IoT data is processed along with non-sensor data to create a solution. The code implementing each is open source for anyone to repurpose. Projects can be viewed and tried interactively at www.terbine.com/application-showcase
An Always-Expanding Range of Inspiring Ideas
Terbine will continually add projects to the Showcase, and invites educators, students and “citizen scientists” to access data feeds and produce their own applications. Upon submitting projects for review, Terbine can include them in the Showcase with links to open source code created for each project. Bonafide academic and not-for-profit institutions are entitled to receive no-charge accounts on the system, which can be browsed at www.terbine.io
