IoT Ethereum Summer Camp 2017- we were part of it
Together with the TU Munich, the Blockchain Center of the Frankfurt School, Daimler Truck, Commerzbank, we co-organized this event. The main topic is the implementation of Internet of Things Use Cases using Ethereum. The winning project was "Decentralised Drone Network".
Together with the TU Munich, the Blockchain Center of the Frankfurt School, Daimler Truck, Commerzbank and other companies, we co-organized and sponsored this event. 5 days. 60 participants. 9 speakers. Ethereum Summer Camp had a special meaning for us: It was the beginning of our cooperation with the Blockchain Center of the Frankfurt School. It also served as a perfect platform for making new contacts.
The main topic of the camp: the implementation of Internet of Things Use Cases through Ethereum - one of the best-known blockchain options. In the run-up 3 interesting challenges were created and served as project goals. One of these was the topic "Accountless Charging via the Blockchain", which we contributed.
The winning project "Decentralised Drone Network" was based on this challenge. Due to the limited range of drones, an easy recharging process is essential. The drones are charged via inductive, decentralised charging elements, which can be mounted on roofs of houses, for example. The blockchain enables fully automated authorisation - and billing of loading processes. This eliminates the necessity for frequent recharging processes at the base station. The vision: parcel delivery by drones. Self-paying and profit-generating at the same time. The result: a fully functional prototype of the drone and the charging station.
The event was very inspiring with many new impressions and interesting contacts within the Blockchain and IoT environment.
