Today we have a problem that too much data is held by large companies. This project is about passing data into the hands of the data producers.
What it does
The initial app is for gps from cars. The gps data is recorded for car traffic and then available for all users. This is stored in a blockchain ledger and hence the data is owned by the car driver producing the data.
How I built it
This uses graphQL as the API service and then Hyperledger Fabric to store the data.
Challenges I ran into
The main challenge was with cors using graphql and https.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The GraphQL works for a stand alone application.
What I learned
I learned about GraphQL.
What's next for whereami
The next stages are to fully integrate a mobile app and extend into all devices which generate data. This is especially relevant for flying cars which are part of an emerging market.
