Press release ALFRIED — Smart Delineators
Filancore GmbH has partnered with ETO GRUPPE to create a self-sovereign identity software solution as part of the ALFRIED program in the realm of autonomous infrastructure.
ALFRIED is the new project at the Friedrichshafen testbed Germany, which is being funded with over €11 million by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) in Germany. ALFRIED stands for “Automatisiertes und vernetztes Fahren in der Logistik am Testfeld Friedrichshafen” — Automated and connected driving in logistics at the Friedrichshafen testbed.
ETO GRUPPE`s goal is to provide a reliable, intelligent, and cost-optimized infrastructure for autonomous driving. This will be made possible by delineators equipped with sensors and communication technology that transmit important information to a smart control center and automotive cyber systems in real time. These smart delineators enable a data trail that communicates accurate and trustworthy parameters, which will be essential for future traffic.
To achieve this vision, a digital identity ecosystem is required, which connects millions of identifiable, unique, self-sovereign actors in a decentralized environment without middlemen or malicious influence by third parties.
“We spent a long time looking for suitable technologies and solutions for our project. In the end, we chose filancore’s solution. filancore offers us the level of expertise we require in the field of decentralized identity management and automotive security. In addition, their solution is based on the IOTA technology, which we have identified as the most promising distributed ledger technology for ETO GRUPPE.” said Benjamin Bönisch, VP Strategy & Corporate Development at ETO GRUPPE.
Together with ETO GRUPPE, filancore leverages the IOTA distributed ledger in order to connect vehicles, infrastructure and smart delineators along the road. The smart delineators utilize t...
