For developers of smart cities and factories
Smart factory uploads information about a product into a decentralized network (similar to torrent: e.g. IPFS, Swarm, etc.) as well as keeps hash-value of function from the data in a chain of blocks. Thus, information about some product is recorded at the moment of uploading and can’t be changed in the future. So, being immutable, data from sensors creates added value.
A tough question in Industry 4.0 is consumers’ access to smart factories. IT-companies offer their portals for sending orders to smart factories. This scheme doesn’t work. IT-companies have an access to smart factories. But not consumers. We solve this problem of middlemen with smart contract and Robonomics OS. Here AIRA (Robonomics OS) suggests a system where is no human an opportunity to integrate with human economy. By contract factories implement orders. This way consumers have a direct access to smart factories without risks of centralization.
The third question is watching the work of smart factories. How can shareholders be sure that a factory produces some goods according to specifications? A supervisor is needed. This role can’t be given only to one side (e.g. IT-company, regulator). Only a decentralized network, an independent third party, can perform supervision. In this case, social stakeholders appear and production process gets transparent and open.
For token holders and miners
To create economic incentives, which support infrastructure work in peer-to-peer network Ethereum we will issue an inner token – Robonomics token (XRT).
XRT will be required each time when it’s necessary to provide verification of working results of a smart factory or city.
