The Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative – MOBI – today announced the top three winners of phase I of the three-year MOBI Grand Challenge (MGC). The top prize went to Chorus Mobility in cooperation with Decentralized Tech for their project on negotiating road space and right of way payments for autonomous vehicles to reduce congestion.
From 14 – 15 February, members of the consortium co-founded by the BMW Group will be meeting with representatives of well-known technology companies from around the world, plus blockchain start-ups and specialists, at the BMW Group IT Centre in Munich. As well as serving as a platform for sharing knowledge and experience, the two-day event is primarily intended to promote and develop common standards for applying blockchain and distributed ledger technologies (DLT) in the mobility industry.
