The New Age of “Open”: Paving the Road for Smart Building Data Interoperability
|Track:||Smart Building Data|
|Time:||12:30 pm - 1:15 pm|
As digital buildings become more widespread, open data standards have arisen in an effort to establish a common framework to improve data quality, and streamline data access for efficiency, flexibility and interoperability. While in the late 1990s and early 2000s much of the Building Automation System industry has coalesced around BACnet, progress towards an open data model for buildings has been more convoluted. But with the rise in popularity of Brick Schema, Project Haystack, RealEstateCore and ASHRAE 223P, the industry now has a solid foundation of open-source semantic models on which to build. Join us for the FIRST EVER live panel bringing together all the major building data standards to discuss how they will underpin future growth in the industry!
