BLOCKCHAIN & IOT
Our Oaken platform makes 'ACORNs', for each physical application within the real world. Our IoT blockchain platform design uses Nodejs to interact with the gpio of the machine where hardware can be monitored and controlled. Our secure hardware environment utilizes Secure Elements in each acorn to protect against external threats. Acorns each have a special purpose, but can be easily scaled and replicated for multiple applications.
A NEW BLOCKCHAIN
Project Oaken, now ‘Oaken Innovations, Inc.’ has teamed up with Toyota Research Institute (TRI), Toyota Insurance Management Solutions (TIMS), MIT Media Labs, and other blockchain and distributed technology startups, GEM, BigChainDB and Commuterz (formerly La’Zooz) to produce an open mobility initiative with a collection of open source technologies, in order to accelerate the autonomous driving future, and the larger support infrastructure that will need to be built to support this future.
At the core of our offering is the hardware. Our hardware profile starts with a linux based SOC - or - System on a Chip. Within that SOC we install an Ethereum node, an IPFS node and NodeJS with some supporting nodejs modules. In our proof of concepts we have used the BeagleBone Black prototyping board, but, because we have utilized the ethereum client in LIGHT CLIENT MODE, this can be swapped for smaller linux based SOCs like the Intel Edison, Intel Joule or Samsung Artik chips. You can find our Technical Specification PDF below.
The platform grows, what we like to call 'acorns', for each physical application - IOT Machines with Autonomous Communication Over Redundant Node Systems. Our simple platform design uses Nodejs to interact with the gpio of the machine where hardware can be monitored and controlled. Acorns each have a special purpose, but can be easily replicated for multiple machine applications and can scale. With that in mind, ACORNS are unlimited. From Oil and Gas distribution controls, to Insulin Dosage Management, and of course our favorite, Beer and Wine vending, ACORNS span a wide range of industrial and personal applications.
Our overall project vision is to be THE IOT hardware and distributed software platform that powers smart cities, with automated machine to machine controls and TRUE value transfer.
