This project will address issues related to sharing IoT datasets on a large distributed scale to support innovation in a way that will not compromise privacy and security. The project will identify and address infrastructural, technological and legal issues to that end, and will initiate the deployment of an infrastructure that will enable individuals or organisations to share IoT datasets. This activity work in synergy with existing initiatives within the Web Science and Internet Science communities. It will provide for accessing IoT datasets already available on the Web and it will aim to host datasets from the experiments of the PETRAS project providing a vehicle for community engagement for the development of analytics and visualisations on those datasets across the PETRAS community and beyond.
- Artefacts: (i) Languages to describe access control and processing on data resources when shared on the Web. (ii) An IoT Observatory portal and hosting service.
- Stakeholder engagement: (i) Public engagement activities where the public can be invited to participate and co-create in key stages of deployment. (ii) Workshops with stakeholders involved in innovation on IoT data analytics.
- Standards and Policy: (i) Recommendations on IoT data sharing by government and organisations. (ii) Metadata standards and Best Practice for describing and accessing IoT datasets.
