Video demo: blockchain technologies for logistics
Blockchain has grown to a viable technology that delivers security, auditability, transparency, and automation of business processes within a decentralized system. Moreover, it can be applied in a number of business sectors – from finances to retail, from IoT to the energy market.
Today we'd like to present you a video demo that we've recently created for the sphere of logistics and transportation. It's all about delivery tracking and updates of blockchain transactions in real time.
The demo comprises a back end, mobile and Web applications, and an IoT device. You may check this post for all the details and technologies applied in this project.
All you need to know about Augmented Reality software testing
Testing of AR software quite fits with the traditional testing pyramid. Yet it has its specifics and additional steps that must be taken to ensure user satisfaction with the final product. What's more, mixed reality has a similar approach, so we'll illustrate it all with our case involving software for Microsoft HoloLens—possibly the most popular headset on the AR/MR market.

MobiDev at IoT Tech Expo 2018
It's so quiet on the outside. But once you walk in, you see lots of people showcasing their products and services, making connections and launching new projects. You can walk along rows of numerous booths where business people look for vendors who can implement their business ideas by means of tech innovation. Such was the latest IoT Tech Expo, which basically comprised 3 events in one: one dedicated to IoT, one to Blockchain, and one to AI technologies. Further impressions of our team are described below by our teammate.
A few words from...
Viktor Gubochkin, Web Development Team Leader
"The expo was mostly dedicated to blockchain, quite vividly represented by Hyperledger and their production-ready Sawtooth, which became the basis for our internal demo product for logistics. The Internet of Things focused on data transmissions and platforms for business. There also were lots of enterprise keynotes, which presented a clear picture of how and why large companies use IoT. The most popular topics at the event were Smart City, Smart Buildings & Factories, and Transport 360.
Our company is always in the midst of such events, so don't hesitate to contact us with your own ideas and suggestions."
