Today, members from the Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative (MOBI) and representatives from major technology companies and automakers convene at IBM’s China Headquarters in Shanghaito discuss the way forward to accelerate the development of connected cars and autonomous mobility solutions. The first APAC MOBI Colloquium sets out to explore the current state of blockchain research and development, IoT solutions, and how these new technologies can make mobility greener, safer, and more accessible for China and the region.

Today’s vehicles are evolving from a mode of transport to moving data centers with onboard sensors and computers that capture information about the vehicle and its surroundings.  Blockchains can unleash this data to power a new and more sustainable future.

In China, blockchain is undergoing a period of rapid growth and experimentation. The People’s Bank of China recently backed and piloted a new blockchain-based trade finance platform, the judiciary adopted rules making blockchain evidence admissible in court, and the Agricultural Bank of China made a blockchain mortgage. The development of blockchain technology itself is key to the nation’s technological advancement.

“Blockchain and decentralized ledger technology has great potential to make mobility greener, safer, and more accessible for cities around the world, especially for nations with rapid urbanization like China,” said Chris Ballinger, CEO of MOBI. “MOBI is set up to promote the advancement of a future solution that combines smart cities and connected cars to make people’s lives better. This is a big mission. It is not a task to be realized by a single company.  By bringing together key stakeholders, experts, and partners, we believe MOBI is in the right position at the right time to advance this grand vision.”

China has more than 300 million registered vehicles – almost the same number as people in the United States – and the number continues to rise.1 10 out of the 25 most congested cities in the world are in mainland China.2 Motor vehicle emissions have become a major source of air pollution in China.3

A new mobility solution is needed to ensure a sustainable future.

If this vision can be realized, the benefits it brings to our society are immense. Studies4 have shown that autonomous vehicles can optimize fuel efficiency and reduce emissions by 60%. In the US alone, people in urban areas spend about 7 billion hours in traffic every year. That’s 3.1 billion gallons of fuel wasted and $160 billion lost due to traffic congestion. Most importantly, by minimizing human error, autonomous vehicle solutions can reduce accidents by 90%.

All this is great but we still have a fair way ahead of us. According to a Rand Corp study,5 1 trillion miles of self-driving data is needed in order for autonomous vehicle models to be accurate and safe. Waymo, the former Google autonomous car project, is driving 25,000 miles a day. At this rate, it would take close to 110,000 years to reach the Rand Corp mileage target.

“The linchpin is data,” said Trent McConaghy, founder of Ocean Protocol. “We are bringing to MOBI a blockchain-powered platform that enables data to be shared in a safe, privacy-preserving, borderless fashion. Algorithms can travel to data to get trained without exposing the data or taking a copy. This is ideal for MOBI’s partners and community to retain data privacy and ownership. For the first time we can unlock the value of data without unlocking data itself,” McConaghy continues.

The MOBI Colloquium Shanghai brings together a diverse network of industry leaders and startups, providing them with a platform to share knowledge and innovate. Widespread adoption of blockchain technology cannot be achieved without the creation and agreement upon standards to regulate the ecosystem. By encouraging communication between differing industries, MOBI helps drive forward blockchain scalability. China’s robust mobility, blockchain, IoT, and AI ecosystem offers tremendous opportunities for MOBI community members to create a brighter and safer future.

The first APAC MOBI Colloquium is hosted by IBM and co-organized by CPChain and Tribe Accelerator.

Position sensor for ICE vehicles is the fastest growing segment during the forecast period

Position sensor plays an important role in understanding the operations of vehicle powertrain and identifying facult, if any, in the engine. Vehicle efficiency can be measured and analyzed with the help of signals coming from position sensors installed inside the vehicle powertrain. Apart from installation in the camshaft and crankshaft assemblies, position sensors are being installed in gearbox assembly to measure the data related to the position of gears and gear shifters. Increasing adoption of position sensors in vehicle powertrains is the main factor driving the market segment.

Heavy-duty vehicle is expected to be the fastest growing segment

Heavy-duty vehicles include trucks and buses. Trucks and buses are being installed with advanced powertrain sensors with the upgrading of powertrains. Powertrains in heavy-duty vehicles have to be powerful enough to survive robust conditions. As a result of that, they are required to be installed with sensors that offer high operational efficiency. The market for heavy-duty vehicles in developing countries is flourishing day-by-day. These are a few of the factors contributing to the growth of the heavy-duty vehicle market for powertrain sensors.

The end of the Sustainable Innovation Forum was marked on December 12th, a COP25 event that brought together over the course of two days the main multilateral organizations, investors and innovators from the private sector, as well as ministers from various countries. Key governmental actors included Carlos Manuel Rodríguez, Minister of the Environment and Energy of Costa RicaIan Duncan, member of the House of Lords from the Government of the United Kingdom, Ola Elvestuen, Minister of Climate and Environment of Norway, and Yasmine Fouad, Minister of the Environment of the Arab Republic of Egypt. This morning, representatives of the Government of Chile, co-organizer of the COP, as well as the Former President of ChileRicardo Lagos, have also joined the forum.

In this context, there has been debate about the needs of different countries to face the current climate crisis, as well as the inevitable energy transition towards renewables and how this works in the wider picture of governmental commitments to a transition based on technological innovation. During the panel “Transitioning Towards a Cleaner, Smarter Energy System of the Future,” this topic was studied in depth, and common conclusions were reached, such as that in order to achieve the objectives set in the COP and the Paris Agreement, it is necessary to enact a more flexible energy system for different governments in their capacity to integrate intermittent renewable energies and other decentralized energy sources. This change requires new business models, regulations and policy frameworks to drive a safe and profitable transition in each region independently. Under this premise, the SAP partner company in IoT and Data Intelligence, Kaiserwetter, has presented in the framework of this forum, the possibility of a new era of effective climate governance for countries, with the presentation of its patented Energy Cloud for Nations, ARISTOTELES Sky.

Hanno Schoklitsch, CEO and founder of Kaiserwetter has stressed the importance of “attracting capital towards the energy transition, not only in industrialized but also in emerging countries, and doing so using the Internet of things and Artificial Intelligence, combined with Machine Learning to create transparency.” With the launch of its new B2G platform The Energy Cloud for Nations “we are creating a more sustainable future by offering a new level of data transparency in the energy market,” which Hanno Schoklitsch says is “essential to achieving the Paris goals, as ARISTOTELES Sky helps governments and authorities cope with the increasing complexity inherent in the energy transition. Action must be taken to accelerate the energy transition now, not only from the private sector, but also from governments, and there is already a way to do this.”
