Noblis’ Piece of eight (Po8) NSR team is competing in a hackathon as known as the MOBI Grand Challenge hosted by MOBI (Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative) and TIoTA (Trusted IoT Alliance). According to MOBI, The ultimate goal of the challenge is to “create the first viable, decentralized, ad-hoc network of blockchain/distributed ledger technology connected vehicles and infrastructure that can reliably share data, coordinate behavior, and thereby improve urban mobility.”
“The Noblis Piece of eight (Po8) concept orchestrates the motions and actions of unfamiliar, connected, and autonomous machines. With Po8, systems of autonomous machines are safer, more productive, and more equitable. To illustrate the Po8 concept and the foundational notion of earned machine trust, Noblis has developed a demonstration using lively autonomous rovers. Here, we introduce the Robot Derby,” said Karl Wunderlich, Director of Noblis’ Surface Transportation Systems Division.
