“Our goal in organizing the IoT Developer’s Forum is to engage the developer community in leading edge solutions that exercise all of the capabilities of our M2.COM architecture, and multi-protocol approach in enabling IoT solutions,” said Shawn Jack, Director, Sales & Embedded Ecosystems.
Car to parking meter communications occurred via Bluetooth Low Energy technology, with Digital Short Range Communication (DSRC) versions planned in the future. Completing this sophisticated architecture was the use of the IOTA decentralized network by the NetObjex platform as a distributed ledger for enabling device discovery, authentication, communication, and transactions.
“The smart parking solution is a practical demonstration of the NetObjex platform in bringing together state-of-the-art capabilities in the form of IoT sensor technology, LoRa communications, decentralized networks and cryptocurrency. Our partnership with Advantech, PNI, and IOTA augurs exciting possibilities ahead” said Raghu Bala, CEO, NetObjex.
