Company Teaser

Spin&Turn has 13 years of experience on embedded system development, hardware and software, and their integration on large scaled systems.
The last few years, company is running the Spin4Chain project aims to identify and trace raw materials in supply chain. It is important for the built IoT sensor, guarantee that what is measured is what is stored, and this is where recent solutions propose the use of blockchain. This is a good approach, but data from IoT sensors is not adapted to the blockchain format, and a frontend is required to translate between both worlds. Under this scenario, there is the risk that data be intercepted and adulterated before reaching the blockchain. The project aims to solve this problem. Our main objective is to guarantee that what it was measured by the sensor is, in fact, what is stored in the blockchain. The IoT sensor will not work as a wallet but, has similar concepts such as a unique address, unique private key and the ability to sign messages (classified messages). A blockchain interface layer, running on any IoT, will be implemented to avoid undue tampering with the transmitted and stored information.
