With connected cars, the data and information are collected in a computer "gateway" inside the vehicle, then fed into a hosted cloud solution. In the recent demonstration, CyberCar leveraged CalAmp's telematics technology to collect data from inside the vehicle by porting its blockchain-optimized Secure Telematics Platform (STP) onto the vehicle gateway. CyberCar then authenticated the data with blockchain on the CyberCar node. Blockchain keeps an unchangeable ledger of data events and is made up of nodes, each with its own immutable record of the same data. This means that even if the data generated from the vehicle were to be altered in any way, the original data collected by CyberCar would remain unchanged and available for verification on a CyberCar blockchain node. "CyberCar is revolutionizing the authentication of data coming off the vehicle gateways" says Pat Kennedy, founder and CEO of CyberCar. "Through the use and implementation of blockchain, our development team, leveraging more than 25 years of connected vehicle experience, has created secure, immutable data that's easily viewed by multiple parties." CyberCar is revolutionary, timely, and future-looking. Blockchain applications for vehicles range from cold transport, tracking regulated goods, autonomous vehicles, insurance, enhanced OEM services, and more. CyberCar is a Colorado-based company that has brought blockchain to connected car security. CyberCar was founded by CEO Pat Kennedy in 2016 and is a spinoff from Cellport, a company founded in 1993 that secured 25 patents covering cellphone-to-vehicle connectivity, internet connected car, and vehicle security.

"Compliance reporting has always been the largest hurdle for the cannabis industry," says Chris Dell'Olio, CEO and Founder of WebJoint. "With CyberCar embedded in our solution, we are able to totally automate all municipal and state reporting requirements." CyberCar secures data to and from connected cars using blockchain technology. Blockchain keeps an unchangeable—or immutable—ledger of important data events. The blockchain is made up of nodes, which form a consensus, and each node has its own immutable record of the same data. Connected vehicle data is produced onto a computer "gateway" inside the vehicle, then fed into a hosted cloud solution. This data is vulnerable to being altered. CyberCar can protect the data by collecting and recording it from inside the vehicle on the vehicle gateway. CyberCar then stores the data with blockchain on the CyberCar node. This means that even if the data generated from the vehicle were to be altered in any way, the original data collected by CyberCar would remain unchanged and available for verification on a CyberCar blockchain node. "By blockchain-enabling data coming off cargo, vehicles, and drivers, we provide an immutable source of data for multiple parties to view and trust," says Pat Kennedy, CEO and Founder of CyberCar. "We are thrilled to work with WebJoint to prove out this technology in the Cannabis industry." The WebJoint pilot kicks off in July 2017, and the companies will be ready for customers by the fourth quarter of 2017. Two of WebJoint's customers will take part in the pilot, which will involve 10 delivery vehicles. During the pilot, CyberCar's blockchain-enabled Secure Telematics Platform will track cargo, vehicle, and driver, and generate automatic compliance reports from CyberCar's blockchain data.
