The i2CAT Foundation presents a supply chain solution powered by IoT and Blockchain at SIL 2019


A secure, trustworthy, battery-less monitoring solution for your goods

The i2CAT Foundation will be present in the 2019 edition of SIL, Southern Europe’s leading exhibition on logistics, transport, intralogistics and material handling. The research center will exhibit a battery-less, encrypted and 100% reliable tracking system that combines the potential of IoT with the highest levels of security offered by Blockchain.

i2CAT’s Supply Chain Solution Powered by IoT and Blockchain

To attain the standard of quality and transparency that both manufacturers and end users demand for their products, i2CAT has developed a solution consisting on an external NFC tag and an internal sensor which can measure a diversity of parameters. Thanks to the combination of IoT and Blockchain the system can:

  1. Read and store information measured by the sensor thanks to an NFC tag, without the need for a battery.
  2. Register and validate the measured data (values, time, location and shipper’s identity) in the Blockchain, so it stays unalterable and can be consulted by anyone.
  3. Certify the reliability of the data with a digital signature.

Only a smartphone is required to interact with the NFC tag, and this exchange is enough to power the tag into reading the sensor’s information. Once the sensor is read, the application sends the data to the Blockchain, where it is registered, confirmed unchangeably and available to anyone who wishes to consult it. Furthermore, every NFC tag contains a symmetric code that is only known by the manufacturer and that empowers him/her to corroborate that the data stored in the Blockchain corresponds with the readings made by the sensor.
