OGC Members Revise IoT Standard SensorThings API Part 1 - Sensing; Public Comment Sought
Version 1.1 is a minor update to OGC’s IoT standard, which is used across the globe in logistics, public safety, energy utilities, environmental monitoring, and more.
4 June 2020: The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) seeks public comment on Version 1.1 of the OGC SensorThings API, Part 1 - Sensing. Comments are due by the 6th of July, 2020.
The OGC SensorThings API provides an open, geospatially enabled, unified way to interconnect Internet of Things (IoT) devices, data, and applications over the web. SensorThings is currently being used by organizations around the world in support of logistics, public safety, energy utilities, environmental monitoring, and more.
At a high level, the OGC SensorThings API provides two main functionalities, with each function handled by a specific part of the standard: Sensing and Tasking.
Under public comment is a new version (v1.1) of the Sensing part, which provides a standard way to manage and retrieve observations and metadata from heterogeneous IoT sensor systems. The separate Tasking part provides a standard way for parameterizing - also called tasking - of taskable IoT devices, such as sensors or actuators.
