Project Haystack is a non-for-profit open-source initiative run by its members since 2014, established with the purpose of educating the building automation market about semantic tagging and data modelling. Project Haystack engages in educational activities and is focused on developing semantic modelling solutions for data related to smart devices, including building equipment systems, automation and control devices, sensors and sensing devices.
As the IoT becomes more prevalent, data management is becoming more and more central to those responsible for the efficient and productive operation of building portfolios. There is so much data available from today's building systems and related applications, that the organisation of such data is of critical importance. Project Haystack is the most widely used open standard that seeks to address this issue.
All work developed by the Project Haystack community is provided for use as open source software under the Academic Free License 3.0. Anyone is free to participate as long as contributed IP is licensed under the AFL. This ensures that Haystack IP is open and freely available for any commercial use.
