Mercedes-Benz

Endare developed a proof-of-concept with blockchain technology for Mercedes. The idea behind this blockchain project is to allow self driving cars to make use of different services (parking, carwash, ...) and pay for them autonomously without the involvement of a human being.

Mercedes-Benz is a global automobile manufacturer and part of the German company Daimler AG. Their headquarters are based in Stuttgart and they are known for their luxury vehicles, buses and coaches.

The project

Endare developed a proof-of-concept for Mercedes based on Ethereum and with the use of smart contracts. The idea behind this blockchain project is to allow self driving cars to make use of different services (parking, carwash, …) and pay for them autonomously without the involvement of a human being.

In this setup, each Mercedes car is a ‘user’ in the blockchain network that can perform transactions. A transaction is a payment to make use of parking lot, a carwash, a gas station,… We use smart contracts to determine the boundaries on what the car can spend where. Thanks to the use of blockchain, we can ensure each transaction is secure and undeniably.
