(BlockBar) According to Forbes, Simens, the automation and digital giant, is considering using block chains in the transport industry to improve the status of the shared car market.
According to Andreas Kind, Director of Network Security and Block Chain Department in Simens, mobile is one of the application areas of Block Chain that Simens pays special attention to. Simens has an independent branch in the mobile field, which is named Simens Mobile, aiming at providing “transportation solutions”. According to its website information, the company’s main business is to help “people and goods” move around the world. Kind says it hopes to incorporate block chain technology into shared cars through Simens Mobile.
Kind cites Zipcar as an example. “One of the problems with this system is the related refueling card, which allows the taxi renter to refuel. However, the use of credit cards will be limited by the client. For example, they can only use cards at specific sites, and sometimes they can be stolen.” Kind believed the technology could be improved through block-chain: “This not only troubles drivers, but also companies. You need a technology that can bring together different participants without having to trust each other completely. And that’s where the block chain can play effect on.”
According to Forbes’ article, Simens is still considering block chain use cases in supply chain and manufacturing. “We are in a situation where we want to develop industrial expansion of block chain systems for enterprises,” Kind said. Obviously, Simens also tends to use licensed block chains. However, the company is still at the testing and developing stage and is still exploring the feasibility of cases.
Carsharing is an area in which Simens is looking for block chains to merge. “Block chains may help create a more frictionless way of trading,” Kind explains. He added: “The deal could be car delivery or simple car sharing, such as unlocking cars.” Kind also mentioned many interactors, such as managers, car owners, garage suppliers, and so on.
According to previous information, on May 15-16 this year, at the Bosch’s 2019 Connected World Conference, Simens demonstrated the technology of “intelligent Parking Based on block chain”. With the continuous development of 5G technology, shared car will become one of commonest 5G application scenarios. If the block chain and shared automobile can be perfectly combined, it will promote the common development of the industry. At the same time, it will also open up the market which still has huge potential, so as to meet people’s travel needs and solve the problem of lack of trust among the industries.
