This lecture took place on 25 May 2022. 

The use of standards for mobile agent distributed identities may soon be pervasive throughout global supply chains to provide trusted and immutable traceability of transactions between multi-lateral, multi-industry entities. DENSO has established at least one mechanism for the connection between the physical world and cyber-based decentralized platforms for trusted trip transactions. Years ago, DENSO developed the QR-code, a machine-readable optical label.  In this lecture, DENSO’s Roger Berg shows how a DLT platform, integrated with QR code readers and printers, can enable raw material, assembly, parts, sub-systems, and final product traceability from creation through a circular economy recycling process, with an immutable and verifiable track & trace ledger.  Roger describes this type of system and demonstrate how it can help to alleviate some of the bigger pain points in the manufacture and delivery of goods throughout society.
