Blockchain for secured vehicular communication systems

Published 26 September, 2022


In the era of digitisation, blockchain has the potential to increase digital security in almost all domains, from data science, intelligent computing and supply chain to the Internet of Things (IoT) environment and politics. Blockchain technology is a distributed database or immutable ledger shared among various participating nodes in the computer network. It is renowned for its abilities to ensure fidelity, secure storage of data transactions and non-third-party trust generation.

The automobile industry is experiencing devasting changes with the propagation of intelligent transportation, vehicular communications, and advancements in wireless communication systems. Vehicular communication system advancements enable interactions between vehicles and roadside infrastructure, including potentially life-saving audio, visual and tactile alerts to warn drivers about possible dangers. Various sensors, communication interfaces and information systems are connected to form the vehicle to vehicle communication system. Ways to ensure the security of those information transmissions and the data generated by the sensors are still being explored. Blockchain with smart contracts has the potential to resolve this problem.
