EFS Consulting and RIDDLE&CODE introduce Drive&Stake, a decentralized solution enabling all players of a mobility ecosystem to connect, share and benefit from vehicle-generated data and create automated mobility data marketplaces.

We are on the verge of a new era of connected mobility, intelligent transportation systems and autonomous vehicles, where countless IoT devices constantly interact. Modern cars have become mobile hubs of data, generating and processing vast amounts of information. Equipped with more than 100 sensors, a modern connected car tracks information on location, performance, physical parameters, driving behavior and much more, often several times per second, creating up to 25 gigabytes of data per hour.

Today, the infrastructure underpinning and supporting these connected systems is centralized and limited in interacting with third-party frameworks, which leaves vehicle-generated data untapped and locked in isolated silos. The potential use cases of this data are immense, but to achieve its full potential, mobility services of the future require different approaches and technologies. Foremost, they require trust.

Curiosity for novel technologies is in the very DNA of EFS Consulting. We are delighted to channel this curiosity together with our technology partner RIDDLE&CODE. Drive&Stake is a project that reinvents the connected vehicle experience, and we are proud to be part of it. Together with RIDDLE&CODE and other industry-leading partners, we are creating new decentralized business models and services on the basis of tokenized mobility data.

Christian Schaupp, Managing Director EFS Consulting

Together with our technology partner RIDDLE&CODE, Europe’s leading Blockchain interface company, we have developed a solution that enables drivers, automotive manufacturers and mobility related service providers to connect, exchange and benefit from vehicle-generated data – without the need to share personal information or industrial secrets. Drive&Stake is a decentralised, scalable and end-to-end solution for the creation of automated mobility data marketplaces, while promoting industry-wide data exchange and enabling all mobility players to obtain extensive insights through real-time data analytics.

RIDDLE&CODE’s technology stack accesses vehicle generated data without revealing any sensitive data, retrieves and signs the extracted data on the blockchain, provides proof of provenance and integrity and eventually encrypts and tokenizes this information on data marketplaces.

RIDDLE&CODE has built Confidential PID that enables the secure extraction of vehicle-generated data and controls how this data will be accessed and utilised. This novel approach comes as a result of our extensive development efforts for other industries like fintech and energy, where RIDDLE&CODE successfully implements various encryption and trusted computing technologies.

EFS Consulting guides automotive manufacturers and mobility service providers to dynamically launch innovative, data-critical use cases, seize full potential of their vehicle data and profit from monetization possibilities on real-time data marketplaces. The variety of use cases within a mobility ecosystem is boundless, ranging from enhanced pay-as-you-drive/pay-how-you-drive services, networked parking for car sharing in city center areas, incentivization models for traffic and mobility management or holistic EV battery data management.

ELOOP, a Vienna-based car sharing start-up with a focus on urban and sustainable mobility solutions, is collaborating with EFS Consulting and RIDDLE&CODE on testing different use cases related to connected electric vehicles, charging solution management and mobility data monetization.

Ocean is an open-source protocol allowing businesses and individuals to exchange and monetize data and data-based services. Leveraging Ocean’s Compute-to-Data environment, Drive&Stake overcomes the trade-off between the benefit of using private data and the risk of exposure.
