Thies Möller, Technical Architect at Basler, presents the "Using Blockchain to Create Trusted Embedded Vision Systems" tutorial at the May 2019 Embedded Vision Summit.
In many IoT architectures, sensor data must be passed to cloud services for further processing. Traditionally, "trusted third parties" have been used to secure this data. In this talk, Möller explores an alternative approach: the use of a blockchain network structure, which can reduce operating costs and help keep systems verifiable and trustworthy. Using the Ethereum blockchain as an example, he illustrates a technique to keep the system free from "trusted third-parties" and examines real-world example applications, such as trusted temperature- controlled supply chains and facial-recognition-based payment systems.
