Internet of Environments

Next-level smart data integrity 


The importance of data integrity

Environmental data is an important source of information for social domains such as policy, legislation, taxation and investments. After all, the data is used to identify trends, to uncover connections and to demonstrate patterns. The important role of the data from these types of measurements makes them vulnerable to influencing by parties with an interest in the developments within such a social domain. Integrity must therefore be guaranteed when designing a process for recording these environmental measurements.


IoE in urban environments

Sensing and analysing environmental data like micro-dust, humidity, CO2-levels and temperature can be helpful in many ways: reducing unnecessary energy use, helping create healthy and comfortable environments for communities, and spotting risks and problems before they occur.

IBM, Factorylab & V-ID placed the first IoE sensor on the roof of the IBM NL Headquarters combining blockchain, IoT & AI and connecting IBM Watson to V-ID certified sensor-data.

IBM Circular Economy Data Network

Digitisation is key to drive the sustainability transformation forward. Data insights, combined and mined creatively, help us better understand our true impact, identify the most effective levers for change, and are also key to enabling circular solutions at scale. We believe we can each bring something to the table, together we can solve complex problems that we can’t solve by ourselves.

With Internet of Environments we’ll be  linking IoE sensors to IBM Watson. V-ID provides the mechanism to certify that the sensor data originates from a trusted source. In this way we ensure a scaleable setup to allow for growth once successful.


Monique van Maare, Social Business expert at IBM: "Combining Blockchain, IoT and predictive analytics will be key to enabling circular economy value chains."

More Case Studies



Marnix van den Berg, Founder V-ID: "More and more devices send data, often forming the basis for important decisions. IoE provides an ecosystem where IoT sensors can emit data along with a proof of data origin and creation time. In addition, Blockchain certified reports are generated with which data changes into authentic and comprehensible information.”
