IOTA and Volkswagen – the world’s largest automaker by sales – will present a proof of concept showing how IOTA can help decentralize, secure and distribute data in the auto industry.
Volkswagen says it’s working to integrate the Tangle, IOTA’s open-source distributed ledger, to power a long list of crucial features in its fleet of vehicles, especially in self-driving cars. The full list of features IOTA can help facilitate includes:
• Automatic car software updates
• Secure car ownership data
• Effective audit trails
• Efficient recalls
Overall, Volkswagen says the advancements will help it create more trust with customers, authorities and third parties. The companies will showcase the technology at CeBit 2018.
