Collectively, we want to help pioneer new technologies and engineering in the fields of automation, robotics and manufacturing.
We believe in a decentralised, automated future that utilises a Machine-to-Machine economy.
Our passion for the pursuit of space drives our vision to create a robust and sustainable logistical model.
for Industry 4.0
Aeroid is developing a software suite and a new Machine-2-Machine communication protocol for autonomous operations.
Our protocol focuses on incorporating;
1. A governance layer through applying principles from Decentralised Autonomous Organisations (DAOs) into a machine environment. This allows machines greater autonomy through increased Machine-2-Machine checks and balances.
2. Self verification, where the local cluster of network enabled devices, sensors, and IoT devices are able to verify and identify incorrect and anomalous input data.
API / ETP Interface
Enabling greater autonomy, communication, and operation capabilities for space missions in isolated environments.
The Global Space Industry is expected to grow to USD $1 trillion by 2030. Advances in rocketry, a growing focus on space defence and increased demand in commercial space activities like tourism and resource discovery are setting new trends for the future of the space economy.
Currently most of our space software systems are centralised. This not only leads to the idea of single point of failure but it also can limit the data transfer bandwidth and can mean that the system is open for lots of security vulnerabilities. Every 100 000 km we go from earth there is a latency between the ground control and spacecraft of around 0.47 seconds. Latency creates bottlenecks, for the Moon there is a two way delay of about 2.6 seconds and for Mars it goes up to 40 minutes.
Many space agencies allocate a large number of people purely for the operations to keep watch over the spacecraft, rovers, machines, performing checks and balances and monitoring the machine health. This is extremely expensive and a significant chunk of the mission cost is due to the operations team.
Sending payloads into space costs tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Self-adapting robots that can act as lego blocks to perform different tasks and achieve different goals far from earth without having to rely on earth communication can reduce these latency issues and also remove single point of failure. Further, self-governing and self-verifying communication protocols between the machines can take a significant load of pressure off of these operations teams.
5G-enabled IoT + Humans + Machines: A new era of manufacturing and industrial automation.
Even though manufacturing is one of the most highly automated industries globally, there is still significant automation potential within processing, assembly, inspection and supply chain management.
Introducing distributed ledger technologies and machine governance into a manufacturing environment will allow participants to set up a wide range of self-executing agreements, contracts, and escrows, and thereby automating repetitive processes such as operation verification, billing and shipping.
