Cities are increasingly using IoT sensor technology to keep an eye on their infrastructure and to offer digital services. In many of these cases it is crucial that citizens can rely on this data and to prevent fraud – for example while logging air quality data or having an ambulance trigger phased traffic lights.
Similarly, it’s more and more important to offer digital infrastructure for companies to be able to receive or send data reliably.
For example, this could enable car rental companies to use a Blockchain API to check whether a valid driving license is available or not. The ubirch method helps building up reliable infrastructure and providing many parties with data and putting less effort in securing the transmission channels and saving money at the same time.
What we can offer
Many of our client relationships in this area did start with an IoT City Hackathon – an excellent opportunity to start with excitement about the opportunities when things are getting connected. Or we can sit together and add our technology to an upcoming project in your smart city – a connected bridge, sensors in public buildings or a bunch of air-quality sensors that are logging data to the Blockchain. Don’t hesitate to contact us.
“As a multi-channel sales-house we have to be prepared for the responsive city of the future – where IoT technology will play a crucial role in the near future. How this can be secured with the ubirch solution – so that data can be made available to multiple stakeholders in a reliable way – does make a lot of sense from our perspective.”
