There are several exciting happenings and events taking place with Project Haystack. We’d like to share a few of them.
Haystack Connect 2019
We just announced that Haystack Connect 2019 would take place May 13-15, 2019 at Paradise Point Resort & Spa in San Diego, California. Haystack Connect is a unique, open-forum for professionals involved in automation, control and the Internet of Things to learn and share the latest technologies and techniques for connecting systems and utilizing device data in applications including intelligent buildings, energy management, remote monitoring, and other IoT devices and applications. Haystack Connect is a biennial event that was originally launched in 2013 and has grown dramatically ever since as the industry addresses the challenge of making smart devices data easier to work with.
This two-and-a-half-day-long conference includes keynote presentations, a vendor exhibition hall, and a packed schedule of technical sessions covering data acquisition, communications, protocol translation, data visualization, analytics, data semantics, modeling, and security—all critical technologies essential to using operational data to drive improved performance. More information about Haystack Connect 2019 is available at www.haystackconnect.org.
Haystack Connections Magazine
The next issue of Connections Magazine is in development and will be published in early January 2019. The Connections Magazine reports the news from the Project Haystack community around the world and provides updates on the development of working groups, new tagging models, reference implementations, complementary applications, and use case stories from the community working together to make device data easier to use across applications of all types. If you are interested in submitting an article, or advertising, contact Robin Bestel at email@example.com.
the Haystack Connect event, Connections magazine has grown
significantly. For those who may not have seen it, you can find the
summer 2018 issue here: https://project-haystack.org/file/29/Haystack-Connections-Magazine-Issue-4-June-2018.pdf
an open-source, collaborative community where people and companies work
together to address the challenge of utilizing semantic modeling to
streamline the interchange of device data among software applications,
Project Haystack has a variety of working groups who help create,
maintain and improve the methodology. To check out the groups
Project Haystack in Other Vertical Applications
Haystack is not limited to building equipment applications. The
Haystack methodology can be applied to virtually any type of equipment
system or device data. John Petze, Executive Director of Project
Haystack, recently spoke at IECON 2018, the 44th Annual Conference of
the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society. Like our market, the
industrial market has a need to make data self-describing and easy to
work with across different applications.
Webinar & Discussion- Project Haystack will be delivering and sponsoring a Webinar and discussion with Memoori Smart Building Research on November 6 at 11:00 AM ET.
The webinar and discussion entitled, The Evolution of Data and
Analytics in the Built Environment, will look at the growth in the use
of data and its impact within the built environment today and how
unified semantic modeling is helping companies navigate the sea of
data. You can sign up for the Webinar at https://www.memoori.com/webinars/evolution-data-analytics-built-environment/
Collaboration with ASHRAE BACnet
April Project Haystack entered into a formal collaboration to integrate
Haystack tagging and Brick data modeling concepts into the proposed
ASHRAE Standard 223P for semantic tagging of building data.
ASHRAE Standard 223P: "Designation and Classification of Semantic Tags for Building Data” provides a dictionary of semantic tags for descriptive tagging of building data including building automation and control data along with associated systems.
By integrating Haystack tagging and Brick data modeling concepts with the upcoming ASHRAE Standard 223P, the result is intended to enable interoperability on semantic information across the building industry, particularly in building automation. This unified effort is aiming at a formally standardized application data modeling solution which can be implemented in various ways.
efforts of this Working Group are proceeding with a final draft
proposal expected to be announced on Project Haystack by the end of
The number of companies supporting Project Haystack continues to grow. You can contact Project Haystack Corporation for additional information on becoming a member by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Presentation at AHR 2019
Semantic Tagging Passes an Inflection Point - Understanding Project Haystack Tue. January 15 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
| B311 Today’s equipment systems produce vast amounts of data. In order
to utilize this data effectively to be useful to downstream
applications like analytics, security compliance, work order tracking,
and more, the data must include information to describe its meaning.
Today, most operational data has very limited descriptive information
requiring a manual, labor-intensive process to "map" the data before
value creation can begin. The practice of applying descriptive
information to data is referred to as data semantics. Since the
ASHRAE announcement of BACnet/Haystack/Brick collaboration, there is a
lot of movement on tagging among manufacturers. There is a mix in the
level of tagging support each vendor now has for the Haystack library
and the BACnet approach, but, there is no pushback regarding the need
to support standardized tagging. They are either already doing it, or
it is on their roadmap. They all understand this is where the industry
is headed as the industry learns to utilize smart device data to reduce
operating costs and create value for building owners and operators.
