Blockchain for V2X Network

Ref: AEV – X1

For optimization on roads with autonomous vehicles, communication between them is cardinal. However, having a single (or few) services provides handle our data and make decisions as to what path would be “optimal” for a given journey would lead to undesired intervention from profit-making companies. For example, based on the user’s previous journeys, the service provider may select a path that would have the user face implicit or explicit advertisements throughout the journey. This can and should be addressed.

Our system is a block-chain based vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication model, that enables vehicles to communicate with each other based on a set of rules agreed upon. Here, no external body interferes with the decision making for the optimal routes. Each vehicle communicates with its surrounding vehicles and based on various factors sets for an optimal yet dynamic path. This makes it truly independent.

We have worked on closed 2.4GHz and 5GHz based mesh networks for the block-chain, and are now testing the functionality over 915MHz, 2.4GHz and 5.9GHz networks, the latter of which is dedicated for V2X communications.

Our system, when operated in tandem with Autonomous Driving Technologies would break barriers in safety standards and would provide with dynamic path optimization without dependency.
