Mobility Use Case
The mobility sector is rapidly evolving, and the future is being shaped by a term Daimler has recently coined. CASE stands for Connected, Autonomous, Shared and Electric, and it encapsulates the current trajectory of the mobility sector, which had been stagnant for decades. Trends, such as the rise in electric vehicles, DLT technologies, machine learning, big data, and self driving cars are collectively evolving the mobility sector at a very rapid pace.
The Problem Set: Mobility Needs a Makeover
Companies are being forced to adapt to a shifting mobility landscape built around the seamless sharing of data, resources and value. Mass adoption of the connected and self-driving car brings with it a slew of new cyber-security threats — from data breaches, to hacked vehicles — that the existing infrastructure isn’t equipped to handle. With this new landscape on the horizon, Constellation is positioned to become the underlying framework for how mobility data is secured, shared and validated. We’re built to be future proof.
Existing Infrastructure was built 20+ years ago and is not equipped to handle data processing needs.
Data Validation & Security
Manufactures need to make sure their data is secure and true in order to ensure the safety of consumers.
Cloud computing is slow and extremely expensive.
Constellation Product Solution
Scalable Infrastructure, Secure Communication
Constellation’s network is horizontally scalable, meaning there is no limit to how fast we can process data and transactions, all the while ensuring the secure storage on a private or public ledger. Constellation’s network embedded nodes on ECUs within vehicles, vehicle data becomes secure, while also providing OEMs with an immutable log of this data.
Decentralized Data Sovereignty
Constellation’s technology and network will empower OEM’s with the ability to understand the ongoing state of an automobile, including the integrity of the data, while providing a secure and scalable append only log. This will improve their understanding of what went wrong, how it went wrong, and if any data was tampered or forged.
Unlock Untapped Data Marketplaces
By utilizing Constellation’s network, you can unlock untapped or previously unvalidated data. OEMs, auto manufacturers and end users alike can be incentivised to exchange and monetize data as digitised assets, unlocking an entirely new realm of economic value and data.
Removal of Silos - Connecting with OEM Units
Constellation’s DLT facilitates interoperability, allowing for a shared and integrated mobility ecosystem Disparate networks can communicate with each other and OEMs can choose what data they want to share with other providers.
Definitions of ECU, OEM
ECU typically stands for an Engine Control Unit, or Electronic Control Unit within a vehicle. It’s also known as the cars computer, and is essentially a blanket term for devices that control various electrical systems in modern vehicles. Typical modern vehicles can have anywhere between 80-150 individual ECU units, each operating like an individual node within the architecture of the vehicles internal bus network. Their responsibilities range from engine, transmission and brake controls, to climate and traction control, and a host of other functions.
OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer, and per Technopedia, “the origin of the OEM term may derive from the Dutch phrase, onder eigen merk. Translated to English, this means under own brand.” This essentially means that the original manufacturer of anything from computer to automobile parts sells their mass-produced hardware to a given company, who then turns around and markets that hardware under their own name. By purchasing hardware from an OEM, companies are essentially outsourcing an aspect of their product development, while saving money in the process.
