As reported on the official blog of the IOTA Foundation, the High Mobility platform is about to announce the launch of a partnership to create a mobility app, starting with an intelligent charging system based on the IOTA ledger.
Create your own apps in the IOTA workspace on the HIGH-MOBILITY @highmobility platform and submit them for review by car OEMs. Head to the #high-mobility channel here on Discord to chat with others on this topic.https://t.co/H0T2ynSq73#IOTA #Mobility

High Mobility has developed an API to create new applications in the automotive sector. At the beginning of this year, they had already collaborated with the German giant Mercedes-Benz to create the experimental API Connected Vehicle for the development and testing of applications and services related to Mercedes vehicles.
Today, by incorporating IOTA’s open source technology, High Mobility aims to test and make IOTA’s technology effective and functional for automotive applications.
The CTO of High Mobility, Kevin Valdek commented:
“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.“
Regarding the first blueprint project, Valdek says:
“In the first blueprint we see not only how vehicle data can be put onto a ledger, but also how it can be combined with charging infrastructure and payments.“
Alisa Maas, Head of Mobility and Automotive at the IOTA Foundation, confirmed:
“I am convinced that bridging the gap between corporates and developers and implementing easy to use and scalable tools will solve major pain points in adoption.”
