Joe Revans helps to design and fabricate prototypes for research projects in Design Informatics. Currently working on GeoPact (part of the B-IoT research project), he joined the team after graduating from Product Design at Edinburgh College of Art. He likes robots and once tried to grow a gothic spire out of oyster mushrooms.
Huge benefits in transportation can be gained if Intelligent Transportation Systems such as automated vehicles are enabled to communicate between each other, and their surrounding infrastructure in ways that are simple, reliable, and widely acceptable for human operators. At the same time, it is imperative that the security and privacy of such communications are considered. This project will demonstrate the potential of distributed ledgers such as blockchain as a method of securing the integrity of such systems.
