Our solution provides a substantial contribution to the challenge imposed by a resilient machine economy, namely seamless interoperability and autonomous exchange of data/information between robots, machines, and IoT devices in manufacturing environments.
We have implemented an Ethereum Blockchain Network which connects robots and machines with each other, and enables autonomous transactions/communication (order placement, negotiation, payment, etc.) between the network participants. The scenario that we are addressing is the autonomous ordering of components for a smart manufacturing scenario.
We are seeking application partners from the manufacturing, logistics, or from other domains such as the retail industry. Particularly partners who are keen and interested in adopting DLT/Blockchain technology in their environment are of special interest. Also partners, who provide ready-to-use Blockchain infrastructures and frameworks suited for machine-to-machine (M2M) communication in machine economy scenarios are welcome to seek cooperation with us.
Activities include different facets of cooperation. These may include but are not limited to cooperation in future research initiatives, sub-contracting, or as a testing partner for DLT technology. Partners which bring in sophisticated DLT and Smart Contract infrastructures can benefit from our envisaged business models.
