Usman Haque, Sam Mulube and Christopher Burman - Pachube, UK
Nominated for the Brit Insurance Interactive Award 2010
Developed by Usman Haque, Sam Mulube and Christopher Burman.
The Pachube service enables people to monitor, store, discover and share real time environmental data from sensors connected to the internet. Just like a physical ‘patch bay’ (or telephone switchboard), Pachube enables any participating entity to plug-in to any other participating entity in real time. For example, buildings, interactive environments, networked energy meters, virtual worlds and mobile sensor devices can all talk and respond to one another.
Pachube makes it simple to build applications, products and services bridging physical and virtual worlds. People have used Pachube to build sensorlogging systems and remote monitoring apps, integrate building management systems, develop geo-tracking systems, create mashups and networked objects and a host of other web-enabled systems.
