(2) Project name: Alfried

Summary: (news 23rd June 2021) “One of Germany’s largest publicly funded roadside infrastructure project will utilize the IOTA protocol as core technology. Autonomous vehicles have been a vision for decades. With more sophisticated sensor technology and manufacturing processes, we are now closer than ever reaching that vision.”

“The ALFRIED project is with 11M€ one of Germany’s largest publicly funded infrastructure project. ALFRIED is set up to provide the above-mentioned data over the coming years in a testbed in the city of Friedrichshafen, demonstrating the highest possible levels of autonomy and security in changing traffic and environmental conditions.”

“To enable the system to operate on the highest possible resilience and security level, ETO GRUPPE will be utilizing the distributed IT-infrastructure IOTA, an open-source distributed ledger technology. IOTA is a secure, feeless, lightweight and highly scalable decentralized infrastructure for data and microscopic value transactions while not relying on any intermediaries.”
