Fanshawe is nearing the end of an RFP process to select a solution provider to deliver an agnostic, flexible data infrastructure to house sensor data from College systems. The intent is to have a structured environment to:
a) collect data from the growing list of IoT devices (sensors),
b) return notifications to stakeholders when exceptions occur (e.g. temperature threshold is exceeded or, sensors do not capture data for extended periods),
c) provide a location where controlled/ secure access can be provided to operators, academics and researchers to retrieve data sets for further study, and
d) share trend data and metrics to College stakeholders through reports, dashboards and (no-touch) digital displays.

We plan to test the proposed solution on a recent solar panel implementation that includes approximately 50 streams of data from device sensors. If successful, we have plans to expands to several additional energy projects.
