Seminar paper from the year 2020 in the subject Business economics - Information Management, grade: 1.3, University of Duisburg-Essen, language: English, abstract: In this paper, the author analysed the potential of Blockchain in smart mobility. In my research, he has focused on four areas of smart mobility being Vehicular Data sharing, Mobility as a Service, VANET as well as Transport and logistic. In order to give the reader basic information, firstly he gave a definition of Blockchain and Smart mobility, then we moved onto the above-mentioned four areas. At first, we explained the goal and the current status of the system, which problems it possesses and how Blockchain can fix these problems. In the end of his paper, he summarized the main findings and point out the weaknesses of Blockchain and why it can be challenging to implement it in this area. Further, there is also a proposed possible solution to current lack of information in order to give a final review to the potential of Blockchain in smart mobility.

Blockchains are seen as a technology for the future, which reduce the cost of trust and revolutionize transactions between individuals, companies and governments. The sense of using blockchains is to minimize the probability of errors, successful frauds and paper-intensive processes. For these reasons, blockchains already have and will have a significant impact to the society and every day's life, especially in field of Machine to Machine (M2M) communications, which are one of the basic technologies for Internet of Things (IoT). Therefore, blockchains with their inherent property to provide security, privacy and decentralized operation are engine for todays and future reliable, autonomous and trusted IoT platforms. Specially, a disruptive role of ledger technologies in future smart personal mobility systems, which combine smart car industry, smart energy/smart cities will be explained in the book, considering its importance for development of new industrial and business models.

By 2020, experts forecast that up to 28 billion devices will be connected to the Internet with only one third of them being computers, smartphones and tablets. The remaining two thirds will be other "devices"--sensors, terminals, household appliances, thermostats, televisions, automobiles, production machinery, urban infrastructure and many other "things"--which traditionally have not been Internet enabled. This "Internet of Things" (IoT) represents a remarkable transformation of the way in which our world will soon interact. Much like the World Wide Web connected computers to networks, and the next evolution connected people to the Internet and other people, IoT looks poised to interconnect devices, people, environments, virtual objects and machines in ways that only science fiction writers could have imagined. In a nutshell, the Internet of Things (IoT) is the convergence of connecting people, things, data and processes. It is transforming our life, business and everything in between. Secure and Smart Internet of Things explores many aspects of the Internet of Things and explains many of the completed principles of IoT and the new advances in IoT including the use of Fog Computing, AI, and Blockchain technology. The topics discussed in the book include: - Internet of Things (IoT) - Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) - Fog Computing - Artificial Intelligence - Blockchain Technology - Network Security - Zero-Trust Model - Data Analytics - Digital Transformation - DDoS - Smart Devices

This book discusses the various open issues of blockchain technology, such as the efficiency of blockchain in different domains of digital cryptocurrency, smart contracts, smart education system, smart cities, cloud identity and access, safeguard to cybersecurity and health care. For the first time in human history, people across the world can trust each other and transact over a large peer-to-peer networks without any central authority. This proves that, trust can be built not only by centralized institution but also by protocols and cryptographic mechanisms. The potential and collaboration between organizations and individuals within peer networks make it possible to potentially move to a global collaborative network without centralization. Blockchain is a complex social, economic and technological phenomenon. This questions what the established terminologies of the modern world like currency, trust, economics and exchange would mean. To make any sense, one needs to realize how much insightful and potential it is in the context and the way it is technically developed. Due to rapid changes in accessing the documents through online transactions and transferring the currency online, many previously used methods are proving insufficient and not secure to solve the problem which arises in the safe and hassle-free transaction. Nowadays, the world changes rapidly, and a transition flow is also seen in Business Process Management (BPM). The traditional Business Process Management holds good establishment last one to two decades, but, the internal workflow confined in a single organization. They do not manage the workflow process and information across organizations. If they do so, again fall in the same trap as the control transfers to the third party that is centralized server and it leads to tampering the data, and single point of failure. To address these issues, this book highlights a number of unique problems and effective solutions that reflects the state-of-the art in blockchain Technology. This book explores new experiments and yields promising solutions to the current challenges of blockchain technology. This book is intended for the researchers, academicians, faculties, scientists, blockchain specialists, business management and software industry professionals who will find it beneficial for their research work and set new ideas in the field of blockchain. This book caters research work in many fields of blockchain engineering, and it provides an in-depth knowledge of the fields covered.

As technology continues to advance and the interconnection of various devices makes our lives easier, it also puts us at further risk of privacy and security threats. Phones can connect to household devices to help set alarms, turn on or off the lights, and even preheat ovens. The Internet of Things (IoT) is this symbiotic interplay of smart devices that collect data and make intelligent decisions. However, the lack of an intrinsic security measure within IoT makes it especially vulnerable to privacy and security threats. Blockchain and IoT Integration highlights how Blockchain, an encrypted, distributed computer filing system, can be used to help protect IoT against such privacy and security breaches. The merger of IoT and blockchain technology is a step towards creating a verifiable, secure, and permanent method of recording data processed by "smart" machines. The text explores the platforms and applications of blockchain-enabled IoT as well as helps clarify how to strengthen the IoT security found in healthcare systems as well as private homes. Other highlights of the book include: Overview of the blockchain architecture Blockchain to secure IoT data Blockchain to secure drug supply chain and combat counterfeits Blockchain IoT concepts for smart grids, smart cities, and smart homes A biometric-based blockchain enabled payment system IoT for smart healthcare monitoring systems

The promise of what Blockchain can offer businesses has evolved from a cryptocurrency payment gateway platform to something bigger and truly a game-changer. Blockchain can be a transformative technology for many businesses as it has the potential to drive a distributed and decentralized way of re-imagining processes and business models. As an inter- organizational paradigm, Blockchain enables cooperation, collaboration, coordination, and communication between hitherto untrusted entities, unknown to each other. And, the best way to participate in this revolution is by being a part of a consortium of eco-system players. Joining a Blockchain consortium raises many questions in the minds of member organisations as this is a relatively new phenomenon. While searching for accurate, ground-level, unbiased and business-oriented information to answer the above questions, we realized that there is no single repository or detailed guide that gives complete information on the best practices of Blockchain consortiums. It was to address these lacunae that we put together this handbook for Blockchain practitioners and business leaders, to help them plan their participation in a holistic way – by cutting through the hype and focusing on the core value propositions that Blockchain consortiums may unlock for their organizations.
