Blockchains are the link between horseless buggies and driverless cars
Personal transportation is on the cusp of the first major revolution in 100 years. Valentin Bercovici discusses the unexpected role blockchains will play in giving us all mobility choices we soon won't be able to live without.

From the invention of assembly lines to robotic manufacturing to driverless cars, automotive innovation continues at a relentless pace. Supply chain optimization is vital to success in this highly competitive industry. What once was restricted to integration of mechanical components now includes a heavy mix of regulated, mission-critical software from multiple suppliers—which must be updated “over the air” at a regular cadence. Valentin Bercovici explores the challenges in securing, maintaining, and repairing the dynamic, heterogeneous software supply chain for modern self-driving cars, from levels 0 to 5. Along the way, Valentin reviews implementation options, from centralized certificate authority-based architectures to decentralized blockchains networked over a fleet of cars, and shares the decision criteria and ROI/TCO metrics captured to date.
