According to the “Information Sharing Among Mobile Apparatus” document, “Connected objects can be sensed and/or controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, integrating connected physical objects into computer-based systems.”
“Connected physical objects are uniquely identifiable through their embedded computing system, allowing the connected physical objects to interoperate within the existing Internet infrastructure.”
IBM is no stranger to blockchain patents, as it has now filed over 90 blockchain-related patents.
Earlier this month, the company filed a patent detailing the data and interaction of self-driving vehicles (SDV’s) using blockchain technology.
According to the document, the SDV will be able interact and predict the behavior of drivers of non-autonomous vehicles nearby.
In March, IBM filed a patent intended to increase the security of permissioned blockchain networks using techniques to endure replay attacks while simultaneously upholding the user’s permissions and privacy.
