In the fifth episode of Untangled we are exploring how to combine hardware sensors with the Tangle. We are talking to Daniel De Michele, founder of XDK2MAM, about their grant winning project and the future need for more code writers. We are also talking to IOTA Ecosystem Director, Lewis Freiberg, on why the IOTA Foundation does not produce hardware, how the Foundation supports those who do and what it takes to get a grant from the IOTA Ecosystem Development Fund.
In the fourth episode of Untangled we are exploring the domains of indoor mapping and localisation. Mapping and localisation has reached incredible levels of accuracy over the years, but indoor mapping is lacking far behind. To find out why that is and how it can be improved through the use of distributed ledger technologies we are talking to Georgios Pipelidis, co-founder of NavIndo, a Munich-based start-up dedicated to indoor mapping and localisation. We are also speaking to Bhaskar Krishnamachari, Director of USC Viterbi Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and the Internet of Things and Engineering Professor.
In the third episode of Untangled we are exploring how distributed ledger technologies are and will be playing a role in the fourth industrial revolution and how they are part of creating completely new business models within industrial manufacturing and Industry 4.0. We are speaking to Simon Jegelka, Managing Director in the German flood protection start-up topocare, and to Daniel Trauth, Leader of the Industrial IOTA Lab Aachen and Chief Engineer and Department Head at the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering of RWTH Aachen University. Both of them have received grants from the IOTA Ecosystem Development Fund in their efforts to improve industrial business models by using distributed ledger technologies.
