T-Labs, an innovation unit of leading German telecom firm Deutsche Telekom, has rolled out a new blockchain-based e-mobility pilot called Xride.

As per a press release, Xride will run on the ståx blockchain platform, which will connect blockchain technologies altogether into one operating stack, making it easily manageable between enterprises. In the Xride pilot, the T-Labs-developed ståx platform can offer shared deployment, allowing blockchain nodes to run on machines, devices, and clouds.

In Xride, historically centralised functionalities like identity management, data verification and storage, payments and charging are fully decentralised. This allows for a less costly, more secure and more efficient vehicle sharing that benefits both providers and the user,” John Calian, T-Labs Senior Vice President and Head, said.

T-Labs revealed it has collaborated with other companies to realize the pilot project. RIDDLE&CODE, Bundesdruckerei, and Jolocom will provide software and hardware layers to enable full decentralized identity verification and identity management. Giesecke+Devrient Mobile Security and Ubirch are responsible for trusted connectivity and transport of cryptographically verifiable data from an eSIM card to ståx.

Meanwhile, Simple Mobility and Telekom Mobility Solutions will both “cooperatively compete” with the Xride services.

The project will initially concentrate on a fleet of electric scooters used by employees working at Deutsche Telekom’s headquarters in Bonn. Participants will interact with the Xride mobile app, swap batteries on the go at installed stations, and share feedbacks with T-Labs.

T-Labs said the pilot, will run for 4 weeks between September and October, can be beneficial for health care, utility networks, and logistics in the future.

In May, T-Labs also partnered with Binance-listed project Fetch.AI to create decentralized Internet of Things (IoT) network innovations. Both companies aim to implement autonomous economic agents using the Fetch.AI’s network to incorporate them into IoT devices. Blockchain and IoT will both be used in the process.
