Volkswagen and IOTA presented a working concept of an unmanned vehicle on the basis of the system of Tangle. This line of vehicles will use the technology IOTA for “essential” downloads of software updates.

In the press release of the concept says that, according to experts, by 2020 the world will have 250 million interconnected in a network of Autonomous vehicles, which need frequent software updates and continuous access to massive data systems. The last paragraph explains the choice Tangle for smartcarb Volkswagen: unlike the block chain, the architecture of Tangle is based on a directed acyclic graph, i.e. Topographically sorted system that supports operation on several circuits simultaneously.

In addition, IOTA has confirmed a joint development with Volkswagen MaaS platform to extend the functionality smartcarb at the expense of the booking, payment and travel planning.

In January of this year, Jungwirth joined the Supervisory Board of the IOTA Foundation; like many developers, he believes that Tangle is the ideal solution for payment or microtransactional network because it does not provide for fees.

Automotive and related development is one of the main activities vIOTA Foundation. In may, the startup joined the transport consortium Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative (MOBI), whose members include BMW, General Motors, Ford, and Renault. A month earlier, the Dutch manufacturer of electric ElaadNL unveiled a prototype charging stations that also use Tangle for processing auto data and calculations used electricity.
