Sophic is an early stage startup building IOT infrastructure and tracking sensor for street level tracking.
Sophic wants to crowdsource data that can power a wide variety of tools from personal navigation, transportation optimization, and planning and analysis.
This is Sophic’s first public crowdsourcing trial, we have been building our technology and infrastructure for a year now and have used it commercially to help retailers, however now we wants to put our technology in hand of people to open it up for everyone.
We think open data collection approach allows for a “virtuous cycle” of consumption and contribution. That is, those who use the outputs of the open-data source are also equipped to contribute to extending its coverage and quality.
