Roadmap

"Road" to Get There
DriveChain's roadmap indicates how the product is planned from a software development point of view. This is not a detailed release date representation, but visualization of our internal product development milestones.
Milestone 0: Smart Data Contracts, NFTs + Tokens and Roles
June 2023
Milestone 1: Asset Pricing + Accessibility
August 2023
Milestone 2: Staking, Visualization, Data Marketplace Analytics FileCoin Storage + FEVM
December 2023
Milestone 3: Testnet Marketplace (Fully-functional)
January 2024
Milestone 4: iOS App + Device (Pilot)
February 2024
Milestone 5: Mainnet Marketplace Launch
April 2024
Milestone 0: Smart Data Contracts, Vehicle Data NFTs + Tokens and Roles
  • Implement automatic generation of vehicle data NFTs using the ERC721 standard. DriveChain will port OceanProtocol's ERC721Factory contract for vehicle data producers to hold Base IP. The deployed contract will store Metadata, ownership, sub-license information, and permissions.
  • Enable the network to automatically create and mint ERC20 token instances for sub-licensing the Base IP.
  • Implement Ocean Protocol's ERC721Template to enable automatic price discovery with ERC721 tokens. Utlize ERC1167 proxy for vehicle data NFTs and datatokens to save on gas fees.
  • Integrate Role administration: Data NFT owner, Base IP manager, ERC20 deployer and fee manager
Milestone 1: Asset Pricing + Accessibility
  • Integrate revenue asset monetization for fixed and dynamic pricing.
  • Port the FixedRateExchange smart contract to store information about the price of the assets published using the Fixed pricing model.
  • Implement Decentralized identifiers (DIDs) to enable verifiable, decentralized digital identity.
  • Implement DID Document (DDO) to include the metadata about the stored asset and available services.
Milestone 2: Staking, Visualization, Data Marketplace Analytics FileCoin Storage + FEVM
  • Implement a staking mechanism to incentivize data providers to provide high-quality and valuable data.
  • Deploy the Data Marketplace with features for discovering, purchasing, and sharing vehicle data NFTs.
  • Develop a suite of analytics and visualization tools for data analysis and exploration.
  • Integrate machine learning models to extract insights and patterns from the data.
  • Create a user-friendly interface for data exploration and visualization.
  • Add mechanisms for storing and sharing Smart Data contracts and assets with FileCoin's protocol to support their distributed storage network.
  • Add support for InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) for content addressing for vehicle data assets retrieval with Content Addressing via Content-Identifiers (CIDs).
  • Port InterPlanetary Linked Data (IPLD) data model to ensure data can be linked and referenced from different data structures in a global namespace.
  • Support of Libp2p's network protocol stack for P2P networks.
  • Future integration of FileCoin's Virtual Machine (FVM) to create Smart Data Contracts with verifiable storage.
Milestone 3: Testnet Marketplace (Fully-functional)
  • Alpha:
    • Declared when: all functionality implemented, 65%+ test coverage, integrated into Smart Data Contracts + Storage.
    • Focus: feature completeness.
  • Beta:
    • Declared when: testnets deployed (user and automatic), running successfully for 5 weeks.
    • Focus: testing and hardening.
  • RC:
    • Declared when: code audited; network-upgrade releases ready for all of DriveChain's nodes.
    • Focus: pre-mainnet preparations.
  • Final:
    • Declared when: DriveChain's marketplace is operating on Mainnet.
Milestone 4: iOS App + Device (Pilot)
  • Incoroprate web-based UI/UX assets to support mobile.
  • Develop UI/UX interaction layers for connecting to crypto wallets (e.g., MetaMask, WalletConnect)
  • Develop UI/UX interaction layers for Purchasing vehicle data-sets.
  • Incorporate Estuary API (TBD) to send/receive user-driving datasets to FileCoin's blockchain for storage
  • Support of CalAmp's EdgeApp to transmit vehicle-level datasets from devices for storage and automatically generating Smart Data Contracts.
  • Prepare plan for vehicle pilot fleet (+20 vehicles) to acquire user-driving datasets.
Milestone 5: Mainnet Marketplace Launch
  • Alpha:
    • Declared when: all functionality implemented, 95%+ test coverage, integrated into Smart Data Contracts + Storage.
    • Focus: Validation and verification in parallel with Testnet
  • Beta:
    • Declared when: mainnet deployed (user and automatic), running successfully for 8 weeks.
    • Focus: testing and hardening.
  • RC:
    • Declared when: code audited; network-upgrade releases ready for all of DriveChain's nodes.
    • Focus: Mainnet launch preparations.
  • Launch:
    • Declared when: DriveChain's marketplace is fully operational.
