Sensorpedia: the Wikipedia™ for sensors

Problem Statement:

  • There are no “plug-and-play” industry standards for interfacing sensor data to enterprise applications

Technical Approach:

  • ORNL has applied Web 2.0 and social media technologies for sharing sensor data.
  • Uses key identity management and credentialing standards to facilitate an information sharing environment for sensor networks
  • Data owner controls publishing and subscribing

Advantage over state-of-the-art:

  • Through Sensorpedia, enterprise applications and users gain access to disparate sensor networks
  • Explores how volunteered sensor data is being used and shared
