IOTA Foundation has entered a partnership with HIGH MOBILITY, under which its developers can build new types of apps based on IOTA’s ledger, significantly simplifying the development process, the company announced in a Medium post on November 20, 2018.
Partnership Between IOTA Foundation and HIGH MOBILITY
HIGH MOBILITY, one of the leading companies in the world of automotive API development, has announced the start of its partnership with IOTA Foundation. The partnership will be dedicated to using the strength of IOTA’s open source distributed ledger technology to power HIGH MOBILITY’s standardized connected car API.
“With IOTA’s ledger and the team’s vision for future mobility, we will see it being applied by many new services. The type of applications that can be enabled with IOTA’s technology and vehicle data are many,” HIGH MOBILITY’s CTO Kevin Valdek said.
According to the company’s November 20 Medium post, the companies launched the first stage of this collaboration via a smart charging blueprint in the all-new IOTA Workspace. Valdek explained that the first blueprint would show them how vehicle data can be put onto a ledger, as well as how it can be combined with charging infrastructure and payments.
Speaking of the advantages of the collaboration, Alisa Maas, Head of Mobility and Automotive at the IOTA Foundation said that bridging the gap between corporates and developers while implementing easy to use and scalable tools will solve major “pain points” in adoption.
Workspace Will Improve the Companies’ Relationship
HIGH MOBILITY is expected to start working in the all-new IOTA Workspace by the end of the year. In this workspace, developers will be able to build and test apps using HIGH MOBILITY’s standardized connected car API on the IOTA platform.
According to the company’s Medium post, the new Workspace will include lightweight and easy to understand documentation and webinars. The Workspace will also feature interactions focusing on users and navigation within the platform.
The ability to cooperate in such a high-end workspace will have a significant impact not only on the companies joint projects, but the individual development of the companies themselves.
Partnering with HIGH MOBILITY will increase the potential the IOTA Foundation and its IOTA protocol have in the mobility industry. The Foundation could also see its potentials rise in the blockchain world if more developers start using the new, simplified workstation to develop mobility apps.
