The crypto of all connected things is at it again. IOTA (MIOTA) has through her vision driven team, dragged vehicular-building team the world over, out of the quagmire of un-encouraging trials.
Technologists have longed for a future where the roads are littered with self-driven cars and the answer to this longing is readily found in IOTA. Through its unique network which is the Tangle, IOTA (MIOTA) can change the world as we know it into a better more effective one; one we have since longed for.
Road Map to the Fulfillment of the Desire of Vehicular App Developers
A world where things work for themselves is an interestingly desirable one. However, not all systems have the required capacity, configuration-wise, to support a world where things happen by themselves. The surest and fastest route, yet, to reach this goal is through the Internet of Things (IoT).
And from all indications IOTA (MIOTA) has been identified as the backbone of Internet of Things. This is majorly because the existing technology by which the reality and everyday use of Internet of Things can be realized, that is, blockchain, is deficient due to poor extensibility and low processing capacity.
Thus, a technology that operates like the blockchain but gives room for higher possibilities and that meets the requirement for the realistic operability of the IoT was developed and that technology was presented in form of the IOTA (MIOTA) Tangle network.
Internet of Things is the way a self-driven car can be realized and Tangle fosters the cause of Internet of Things.
Having known that their desire is to have a self-driven car, developers and technologist have since begun to pay more attention to the IoT which is the key to this door of opportunities. What then, is the Internet of Things and what possibilities does it portend?
IOTA (MIOTA): Internet of Things (IoT)
The concept of IoT is that of the interconnectivity of everyday objects, that have computing devices embedded in them, via the internet; thus, enabling them to send and receive data to and from one another.
And so, we can have the possibility of your car paying its own bills and your coffee maker sending data to your phone or wrist watch at programmed times during the day. Therefore, IoT creates opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computer-based systems, resulting in efficiency improvements, economic benefits, and reduced human exertions.
The Possibilities Inherent in the IOTA (MIOTA) Tangle Network for Vehicular Applications
The Tangle is a theoretical concept which aims to overcome the current challenges blockchain systems have and provide an outlook of how a protocol can be designed have in order to fulfill the requirements of the Internet of Things industry.
It also aims to provide a framework for conducting trustless and feeless transactions in a highly scalable manner on a decentralized, partition tolerant network, consisting of potentially millions of IoT devices. Tangle bundles all transactions in a Directed Acyclic Graph, completely self regulates and is highly scalable.
IOTA (MIOTA)’S Tangle Unravels the Hard Knots of Vehicular Problems
In a research paper titled IOTA Feasibility and Perspectives For Enabling Vehicular Applications written by Paulo C. Bartolomeu [DETI, IT], Emanuel Vieira [DETI], and Joaquim Ferreira [ESTGA, IT] and released about two months back, they hinted at the possibilities of using iota tangle as an underlying feature to increase the privacy in vehicular applications.
Incorporating Sensing Capabilities
The paper submitted that wireless communications have evolved to provide connectivity with the quality of service and flexibility tailored to enable vehicular applications since the time vehicles became autonomous.
From it also, it was learnt that the future of transport and mobility will surely be enabled by autonomous vehicles encompassing sensing capabilities that can cooperate with each other and share their sensing resources and perspective with the nearby infrastructures and neighboring vehicles.
IOTA (MIOTA): Managing Privacy and Security Issues
Increasing the privacy of the vehicular applications helps to make sure that there’s no case of interception as a result of the fact that many things are connected to each other at the same time.
This is a feat the team hopes to help developers achieve so as to prevent past unpleasant occurrences of hacking such as when unauthorized parties gain access into the system of a vehicle through a laptop and meddle with its dashboard functions steering, brakes and transmission from anywhere in the world.
Finally, IOTA (MIOTA) Tangle is the perfect solution to the vehicular application problem because it triggers smaller transaction delays in comparison to existing blockchain systems.
