What is Robonomics Network?
Full-scale appliance of cyber physical systems (CPSs) in production, logistics and urban life will allow us to cope with the increasing complexity of supply chains, and deliver quality products to consumers. The main issue here, according to the articles authors, is arranging the global collaboration of different CPSs.
We consider arranging the collaboration of autonomous cyber physical systems work as a network based on market mechanisms to be the most sustainable option.
The network of distribution, control and provision of services by cyber-physical systems adaptable to human needs, built on the basis of market mechanisms and directly accessible to the end user, can be created on the basis of p2p technologies. This allows the combination of technical and economic parameters of the transaction to the machine.
Building such a peer-to-peer network can be carried out on the basis of the Ethereum infrastructure. By expanding the capabilities of the basic communication protocol, we can train cyber physical systems to interact with market mechanisms and contractual obligations.
The creation and development of a platform that provides tools for working with the robot economy network (briefly – the Robonomics platform) will allow designers of new cities and industrial zones to build trust among the autonomous robots services, provide direct user access for ordering products from autonomous factories and services of urban sensor networks. This in turn will allow us to put in place a decentralized system that globally monitors the activities of cyber physical systems.
