  17. 17. sensorup.com@sensorup What is SensorThings API • An Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Standard (currently a candidate) • Part of the mature OGC Sensor Web Enablement standards • Provide the following functions: • Sensor Data Management (sensing profile) • Sensor Data Analytics (sensing profile) • Command and Control (tasking profile) • Event Detection and Notification (rules engine profile)
  18. 18. sensorup.com@sensorup Applications or Devices Web Server (e.g., Cloud) 2. SensorThings API RESTful Interfaces for accessing sensor data, tasking actuators and detect events 1. Standard Data Model based on ISO/OGC Observation and Measurement MQTT, HTTP, CoAP
  19. 19. sensorup.com@sensorup SensorThings API Benefits • One coherent API and data model integrate all your sensors (mobile or stationary, remote or in-situ) • future proof and extensible (in case you need to integrate new type of sensors into your applications) • lower financial and technical risk • lower training costs • improved productivity • great developer experience
  20. 20. sensorup.com@sensorup • Open Standards • less chance of being locked in by a specific technology and/or vendor • easier for systems from different parties or using different technologies to interoperate and communicate with one another • improved data interchange and exchange • data and system, i.e., your investments, won’t become obsolete soon • more choices available in the market (closed source, open source, SaaS) SensorThings API Benefits
  21. 21. sensorup.com@sensorup • Location Intelligent • designed for both simple and complex geospatial applications - indoor/outdoor, geometry/network, stationary features/ moving features. • designed for real-time applications • e.g., fleet management, asset tracking, disaster response • designed for both in-situ and remote sensors (e.g., drones) SensorThings API Benefits
  22. 22. sensorup.com@sensorup • Reduce your time to market • you can innovate based on world-class R&D efforts • you can leverage existing libraries, SDKs, developer documentations, developer training materials, knowledge bases, etc. SensorThings API Benefits
  23. 23. sensorup.com@sensorup • Reduce your development and maintenance costs • you can innovate based on more than 10 years of R&D efforts • you can leverage existing libraries, SDKs, developer documentations, developer training materials, knowledge bases, etc. • no need to build and maintain your own developer ecosystem SensorThings API Benefits
  24. 24. sensorup.com@sensorup SensorThings API Maturity • Adoption vote scheduled in December 2015 • OGC Compliance Test available • Very complete SDK ecosystem 
 
 • At least four different server implementations • Being tested in OGC Incident Management Information Sharing Pilot (sponsored by Department of Homeland Security and IJIS)
  25. 25. sensorup.com@sensorup FAQ • Is SensorThings API part of the OGC Sensor Web Enablement? • YES. • Is SensorThings API compatible with OGC Sensor Observation Services? • YES. • Is SensorThings API compatible with Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDIs)? • YES. • Can I use my existing GIS to connect to SensorThings API services? • YES. For example, we have an ArcGIS plug-in available.
  26. 26. Case Study #1 • A pilot project funded by Department of Homeland Security and IJIS Institute • Problem: • lacking a Common Operating Picture (COP) for various first responder groups and disaster managers • Solution: • SensorUp platform allows various group to access heterogeneous sensing systems Case Study #1
  27. 27. OGC ® OGC Pilot on IoT for Incident Management Information Sharing 27 • Kick-off: July 2015 • Demo: January 2016 • Pilot project sponsor:
  28. 28. Case Study #1 • Opportunities: • next generation first responders need to be protected, connected, fully aware. • sensors are everywhere, including smart shirts, plug-and-play sensing systems, smart cities infrastructure • lacking a Common Operating Picture (COP) for various first responder groups and disaster managers • Solution and Results: • SensorThings API allows various groups accessing heterogeneous IoT-based sensing systems within a coherent platform • enable interoperability • can reduce implementation and training time and cost significantly in the future
  29. 29. sensorup.com@sensorup Environmental Monitoring Case Study #2 Environmental Monitoring
  30. 30. Case Study #2 • Opportunities: • Rockyview County and Uni. Calgary researchers need better groundwater information • Affordable sensors allowing citizens (well owners) to contribute groundwater level monitoring • Lacking a Sensor Data Management Platform to integrate data from more than 40 well owners • Solution and Results: • SensorThings API allows citizens to contribute their monitoring data effortlessly • Various groups accessing groundwater data within a coherent platform • Cheaper and better environmental monitoring that can be integrated with other OGC systems instantly
