Terbine has launched a global IoT data subscription service. More than 30,000 data feeds from all 50 states and over 100 countries are accessible via a single portal, searchable by human and AI users.
Las Vegas-based Terbine is offering subscriptions to its global IoT data trove to commercial users. The continually expanding index provides fingertip access to sensor readings generated by infrastructure, transportation, meteorology, energy, logistics and many other sectors.
The system makes it possible for human users and AIs alike to find and retrieve sensor information rapidly from sources around the world and apply it to analytics, visualisations, operation of machines and management of infrastructure.
"Imagine this as a Bloomberg for the physical world," said David Knight, Terbine CEO. "Instead of digging through many thousands of individual data sites and nearly indistinguishable data streams, it's all comprehensively contextualised and indexed for you."
Terbine provides rich context, provenance, indexing and over 30 searchable parameters, each with multiple subcategories. Representing thousands of human-hours in data acquisition and characterisation, the data are sourced from a broad range of public agencies and other sources encompassing air, land, water and space.
Subscriptions to the system of data feeds is offered on a 30-day no charge trial basis. Following the trial period, companies will be charged $795 monthly for an initial user, with additional users charged at $195 per month. Anyone can browse the available feeds without logging in. A subscription enables access to the actual data files and streams.
Terbine is working with companies in sectors including financial services, supply chain, logistics, insurance, autonomous vehicle start-ups looking for training data, and many others. Data feeds from commercial sources including automotive, energy and more will be added soon and priced on an à la carte basis. Connectors are offered to popular analytics software including Tableau and languages such as Python.
Terbine is a large-scale system for the seamless exchanging of IoT data, which characterises, categorises, licenses, regulates, tracks, monetises and securitises the flow of machine-generated data emanating from public agencies, academic institutions and commercial entities.
