Our European project NeMo – Hyper-Network for Electromobility won the 1st award for the Most Feasible Entry in the MOBI Grand Challenge Phase II Citopia (https://dlt.mobi/mgc/) and the award ceremony took place on 12-13 November 2019 during the MOBI Colloquiums and Exhibitions (MoCo Los Angeles).
MOBI is a nonprofit smart mobility consortium working with more than 100 forward thinking companies, governments, and NGOs to make mobility services more efficient, affordable, greener, safer, and less congested by promoting standards and accelerating the adoption of blockchain, distributed ledger, and related technologies in the mobility industry.
The MOBI Grand Challenge (MGC) launched October 2018 and is modelled on the DARPA grand challenge for autonomous driving which captured the public imagination and launched the autonomous driving revolution. MGC is sponsored by MOBI, the Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative and TIoTA, the Trusted IoT Alliance. The goal of the challenge is to create the first viable, decentralized, ad-hoc network of blockchain connected IoT and smart infrastructure that can reliably share data, participate in transactions, coordinate behavior, and thereby improve human mobility.
