Blockchain Pilot Aims For V2X Standard

A US university pilot scheme is hoping to develop a working automotive standard for V2X communications using blockchain.

The University of Nevada is teaming up with IoT blockchain company Filament, to develop a system for enabling secure data transfer transactions between a driverless vehicle’s sensor array and roadside DSRC units. Research and development will take place at the Nevada Center for Applied Research (NCAR) and will involve simulated testing of Filament’s Blocklet technologies, currently used to collect data on fleet drivers’ speeds, fuel levels and journey times that are verified and added to blockchains.

NCAR director Carlos Cardillo said he thinks the project will develop “a new set of data integrity standards that others can follow when rolling out their own initiatives”.
