At what occasions does the research team present its findings? At which events does the Economy of Things play a role?
Keynote speech at GAIA-X Summit – determining the future value of GAIA-X
23.11.2020 | Event
The value of a future GAIA-X infrastructure can be assessed using a market that aligns all stakeholder utilities. By choosing the right-to-use approach, long-term consistency between utilities from all stakeholders can be ensured – i.e. stakeholders with a high overlap of common goals come together. Right-to-use can be translated as a token design for the digital realm. GAIA-X tokens secure funds for building the infrastructure and continuously measuring future value growth. That also means digital right-to-use is a game changer for transforming GAIA-X into a new kind of powerful digital cooperative. This is a brief summary of what Nik Scharmann and Christian Heise, the Project Directors of “Economy of Things” at Bosch Research, presented at the virtual GAIA-X Summit on November 18 and 19.
Blockchain Expo Europe 2020 ‒ Connecting the blockchain ecosystem ‒ Nov. 25-26
18.08.2020 | Event
The team behind the “Economy of Things” strategic advance engineering project at Bosch Research will present the topic “Decentralized energy trading infrastructure – privacy-preserving residential energy auctioneering” at the Blockchain Expo Europe 2020 on November 25. In particular, the pre-recorded video presentation will focus on the aspects of peak load shifting and energy auctioning using multi-party computation (MPC), controlling household data with self-sovereign identity (SSI) concepts, and the Economy of Things principle of coopetition in decentralized energy coordination systems.

EoT Live-Demo at St. Gallen Blockchain Roundtable

Bosch, EnBW and Siemens have jointly developed a Proof of Concept that makes the future of the EoT tangible: A Bosch-modified e-car communicates via blockchain with a Siemens traffic light to gain access to a site and then with an EnBW charging pole for the loading process. The transactions required for identification, authorization and payment are processed autonomously on a blockchain via a Smart Contract, which contains the contract conditions for the vehicle, traffic light and charging station. A technological milestone that was only possible thanks to the proactive, open and cooperative approach of the three partners. “It took less than three months from idea to implementation. This speed could become a success factor in in setting up an EoT,” says Christian Heise, deputy project director EoT at Bosch.
