IOTA has a slightly different use case than "ordinary" Crypto. While Bitcoin sees such as an electronic Peer-to-Peer money system, IOTA, aims to provide a technological infrastructure for the Internet of things (IoT: Internet of Things). So the System is not based on a normal Blockchain, instead it uses a directed acyclic graph, also known as the Tangle.
note: the following use case is used including the technology of Microsoft, the company itself is, however, not involved further.IOTA meets Microsoft
A Cloud Developer at Microsoft, presented in a YouTube Video a possible use case for the crypto currency and its technological infrastructure: a Smart Fridge. The "smart fridge" will detect whether certain content is missing, and you can order then using Microsoft's Azure, a camera and an external device supplies at the supermarket:Let's build a Smart Fridge using IOTA and Azure IoT Edge
watch This Video on YouTube.
The smart fridge is in this application case, it is "aware" of what content it cools. In the presented example, the refrigerator repairman, then at the super markets on current prices and can order if necessary supplies.communication from Microsoft
The communication between the supermarket and the refrigerator runs on the IOTA Protocol. The Software "Azure IoT Edge" from the house of Microsoft, in turn, provides the necessary artificial IQ. It provides the basis for Services in connection with Artificial intelligence.
In the example video is a USB camera installed that films the fridge. You removed something from the fridge, join the the camera. It communicates via an external device (in this case a raspberry Pi) with a Cloud service. The Azure Image Recognition Service detects the distance automatically; the device to ask for the nearby super markets, current prices. The Service in turn has its own IOTA Wallet and ordered the missing stuff automatically. The latter depends in turn on where to find the best price. The device uses an "Order Manager", i.e. a module that in turn communicates with the Tangle.
The necessary IOTA Token, it then automatically transfers from the own Wallet to the supermarket.
Dominik Schiener, co-founder of the IOTA Foundation, for the current application compared to BTC-ECHO:
The IOTA-Ecosystem is one of the largest and most innovative in the DLT area. We focus strongly on supporting the Community and developers, new ideas, and Use Cases together to implement. The Smart Fridge is one of the best examples that we show as an Ecosystem, what will be in the future with IOTA possible.
Who wants to rebuild the demo version of the refrigerator or the Proof-of-Concept, to find the necessary information on the official Github Account of the developer.
The IOTA course, it goes here.
