IoT Standardisation Panel

  1. 1. Standards + IoT<br />Duncan Wilson <br /> <br />ECTP + Expert Group on IoT<br />
  2. 2. Information Technology is beginning to have a profound effect on the way the Built Environment is planned, designed, procured, constructed and operated.<br /> @djdunc<br />
  3. 3. 3D GIS<br />Kwun Tong Line Extension Preliminary Design, Hong Kong<br /> @djdunc<br />
  4. 4. "Arguably the most significant barrier to the evolution of the Intelligent/Smart building over the years has been the lack of standardisation. It has taken the IT industry and the success of IP to provide the necessary common platform for the building controls and automation industry to now produce systems that adhere to the standard provided by IP."<br /> @djdunc<br />
  5. 5. "It may talk IP, communicate in an open language like BACnet and integrate with other IT standards through ESB, XML etc, but the fact remains that if I want to change the way my controller operates the AHU or the lights (or make those systems talk to each other), then I still need the controller manufacturers programming application to do that – I’m still locked into them through the software; it’s just that they’ve hidden it way down at the controller level and protected it with a password/dongle/key by some means."<br /> @djdunc<br />
  6. 6. “[what can we learn] from a web approach to interoperability? Web sites and services can expose APIs and this approach could work well to make physical things talk, too. REST interfaces for instance could be implemented for any device to get, set, add, remove data. It would be great to have completely transparent, open and standardised protocols, but it the meanwhile just having an open, well documented API might just work and keep the suppliers and manufacturers happy about their proprietary stuff."<br /> @djdunc<br />
