“Through auditable data logging, the data to be processed is encrypted locally in a distributed blockchain… With this basis, the future of autonomous driving will see improved functions on offer: Local data can be used to obtain regional learning effects, which can be shared securely with other vehicles. The customer can make use of swarm data, which is protected at the same time.”
This is a three-month company where the ideas will be created on approaches to incorporate the SpinLab into their project.
With the enormous groups from the automobile industry like Porsche and Volkswagen entering the crypto world, it will be interesting to see which different names will be the following in line.
