Because of the unpredictable nature, power utility companies have trouble managing the power grid when there is a gap between power generation level and consumption level. Our team tried to solve the problem by utilizing smart home devices which can be managed automatically
What it does
When the power consumption doesn't match the power generation, Pother in power grid system create a request power adjustment through smart contract. Pother in smart home adjust the power consumption automatically and get compensated by Ether according to their contribution.
How we built it
Incorporate Smartthings API with solidity
Challenges we ran into
None of us is a good blockchain/solidity developer
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Proof of concept, exposing smart home functionality through custom developed API
What we learned
smart contracts are significantly limited in functionality compared to our expectations.
What's next for Pother: Smart Power Grid Management
