IEEE@HOME BLOCKCHAIN SERIES 2021: "Traceability for Industrial Environments based on a High Tamper Proof System Enabled by Blockchain Technology"


The world is changing, consumers are more informed and more demanding and want to track their products and their origins. Transparency plays a key role in the moment of choice. High customization is struggling with the value stream and the supply chain. Manufacturers need to track efficiently their products and processes and give real time information for all interested parts internally and externally.

Many challenges need to be addressed on a plant shop floor.

This work proposes a decentralized network architecture approach to track and trace physical and logical assets on an industrial environment, by means of a tamper proof system, using blockchain technology, based on data capture on the field using identification and IoT devices.

Discusses how to deal with concerns like security & privacy; efficiency & latency.
