Battery Self-Sovereign Digital Twins™
In order to ensure the execution of secure, privacy-preserving, trusted IoT transactions and data sharing in a decentralized ecosystem, it is necessary to develop new ways to identify and verify the entities involved. To this end, MOBI and its members are defining trusted identity standards for connected ecosystems in addition to building the Web3 infrastructure needed to facilitate these transactions.
In 2018, MOBI released MOBI VID to define a Vehicle Self-Sovereign Digital Twin™, the first W3C DID-based vehicle identity that can be anchored on a blockchain or similar tamper-evident environment. In mid-2020, we began to focus our efforts on defining a Battery SSDT™ to support trusted battery tracking, evaluation, and management. The Battery SSDT™ stores a combination of static and real-time data to log a battery’s journey throughout its lifetime. Battery SSDTs™ are onboarded and managed on Citopia, with trusted identity and assurance services provided by the Integrated Trust Network (ITN).
