Stage One of the MOBI Grand Challenge
October 2018 - January 2019
MOBI partnered with the Trusted IoT Alliance to host the MOBI Grand Challenge, an event loosely modeled on the DARPA grand challenge for autonomous driving. In 2004, this challenge captured the public imagination and launched the autonomous driving revolution. However, unlike the DARPA challenge, the MOBI Grand Challenge focuses on improving the capabilities of autonomous cars by sharing data and coordinating movement using blockchains. This first stage of the challenge lasted four months and is the start of a three-year program.
The winners were announced at the MOBI Colloquium on February 14-15th, an invite-only event hosted by the BMW Group at the BMW Group IT Center in Munich. This event served as a forum to advance the adoption of Blockchain technology in the mobility sector and as a celebration of the accomplishments of the participants from the first round of the MGC.
