Author: David Mirynech
Release Date: August 31, 2019
This project explores how blockchain technology will optimize the deployment of connected and autonomous vehicles, including those with electric vertical takeoff and landing capabilities. It looks at the Mobile Open Blockchain Initiative, which involves 80 percent of world’s auto manufacturers and leading tech firms. It covers such implementation challenges as blockchain latency and scalability, communications network latency, device security, and regulation. Finally, it raises concerns about data privacy on immutable distributed ledgers as well as the legal liabilities of autonomous vehicle ownership and usage.
