The Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative (MOBI) is working with BMW, Ford, GM, Groupe Renault, Honda, and other major automakers to develop a multi-stakeholder Proof of Concept (PoC) for a blockchain-based Vehicle Identity (VID). In September, MOBI members launched an important joint initiative to test implementation of the first VID standard, released earlier this year, taking a critical step towards the new economy of movement with blockchain.
Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative’s member-led Vehicle Identification Working Group created and launched the industry’s first VID standard incorporating blockchain technology into a digital vehicle identification system. In order to establish existence, this first standard focuses on the “birth” of the vehicle as a minimum representation of that vehicle’s creation.
