Bosch, the electronic giant who has partnered with IOTA, announced that it has integrated the new IoT data acquisition device with the decentralized IOTA Data Market.
The IOTA Market is a decentralized data market where parties can buy or sell access to active data streams using MAM. According to a shipment from Bosch’s official blog, MAM is a second-tier data communication protocol that allows data to be shared securely across an encrypted channel. As stated in the blog post, data subscribers can trust the data source and integrity, even if the identity of the resource is masked.
Bosch’s new connectivity device, the Bosch XDK, is described as a programmable sensor device that also functions as a sensor node solution and an Internet of Things (IoT) prototyping platform. The device incorporates various sensor, data storage and network technologies to enable users with different levels of experience to program data in real time and to sell them in the IOTA market.
As Bosch pointed out, there was no open source code to connect to the Bosch XDK and IOTA protocol Tangle. In addition to the XDK device, the XDK2MAM development team has developed an open source code for the IOTA community to facilitate the interaction between hardware and Tangle.
At the end of August, Japan’s Fujistu announced an IOTA-based concept proof for audit trail processes in the manufacturing sector. The company is considering using the IOTA protocol as an unchangeable data storage medium for audit trail across industrial production environments and supply chains.
Volkswagen , with IOTA in June, showed a concept proof that IOTA uses the Tangle system for autonomous cars.
Last week, Ledger announced that it now supports IOTA.
IOTA’s token MIOTA is now available for $ 0.49
