AIOTI Distributed Ledger Technologies Group published on 27 May a Report on DLT-IoT technological convergence.
The convergence of disruptive technologies is driving society towards a fast and unprecedented digital transition, breaking the barriers between the physical and the digital world. Framing the complexity of this phenomenon requires a deep understanding of involved technologies and a clear comprehension of how the underlying building blocks could work together to build new platforms and real-world applications.
This report presents the AIOTI perspective on the convergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Decentralized Ledger Technologies (DLT) exploring the opportunities lying at the intersection connecting the different layers of the two technological stacks to identify promising areas of integration and related use cases.
The analysis begins with the definition of two high-level technological stacks as a stepping stone to understand the characteristic of the underlying building blocks. Subsequently, the discussion will move to the identification of areas and topics of interest by means of a Convergence Matrix aiming to set a common ground of open research topics and application opportunities. Finally, to connect the theoretical analysis to real use cases, the most promising convergence’ topics will be selected and linked to the existing applications identified among the AIOTI DLT Test Beds.

The report will be presented on a webinar that will be held on 6 July at 15.00h CEST. The webinar is open to all interested parties and can be joined for free here.
