HyperCat joins the Industrial Internet Consortium
HyperCat has announced that it is joining the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) to help tackle two key IoT challenges: firstly, how to find relevant and trustworthy data from connected ‘things’; And secondly, how to make it easier for those things to talk to each other.
HyperCat is focused on making data from a connected thing or device discoverable, searchable and addressable. The HyperCat standard is intentionally brief and will be accessible to all, hoping to encourage widescale adoption. It is funded by the UK government, through Innovate UK and is backed by over 500 international businesses.
“The greatest value from the IoT will come when we combine the intelligence from multiple devices to create new and improved services,” said Justin Anderson, HyperCat lead and CEO of Flexeye. “The HyperCat standard, together with the work of the IIC and the other major IoT collaborative bodies, will go a long way towards delivering the required interoperability.”
The IIC was founded in March 2014 to bring together the organisations and technologies necessary to accelerate growth of the Industrial Internet by identifying, assembling and promoting best practices. Membership includes small and large technology innovators, vertical market leaders, researchers, universities and governments.
Stephen Mellor, CTO of the IIC said: “I am delighted to welcome HyperCat as the latest member of IIC and I look forward to seeing the standard in action in collaboration with our testbed sponsors.”
