In the thirteenth episode of Untangled we are exploring a use case of platooning. Jonas Brügmann, Nicolas Ruhland and Matthias Babel from the Fraunhofer Blockchain Lab of the Bayreuth University has developed a business model for vehicles to organise themselves in a platoon. Only the leader of the platoon will be controlled by a person, while the rest of the vehicles are driving autonomously. By using the Tangle, the platoon leader can get compensated in real-time for the leading efforts. Listen to the episode here to learn more.
The twelfth episode of Untangled is exploring how we can restore the quickly disappearing forests of the planet and how we can build new sustainable systems to provide a good life for both animals, plants and people. Willie Smits from the Masarang Foundation in Indonesia is talking about his efforts to rebuild the rainforest on Borneo after it was devastated by the palm oil industry. And Jan-Peter Doomernik, Enexis, and Sam Butler are giving insights on how to create new and out-of-the-box ecosystems from the Odyssey Hackathon that we visited for the last episode of Untangled.
