现代汽车使用区块链来验证正品汽车零部件

2021-1-9 13:03

 

现代汽车的零部件子公司现代摩比斯(Hyundai MOBIS)推出了一款新的零部件软件系统MAPS(最先进的零部件系统),它利用了人工智能和区块链。该平台将用于分销300款现代和起亚汽车的售后(AS)零部件。


整个供应链将有多达10万人使用该系统,其中包括200多个国家的1.6万名经销商。该IT系统支持300款车型的300万个不同部件。


区块链正在试验,以验证一个部件是原始的。这家汽车公司对一些国家使用非法假冒零部件表示担忧,这可能会导致安全问题。因此,车主可以扫描包装上的二维码来验证零件的真伪。


然而,现代摩比斯只提到了假冒零部件,而另一个常见的问题是,维修公司对原装零部件收取全价,却使用通用零部件。在这种情况下,这些部件可能不会造成安全问题,但消费者并没有得到他们想要的东西。


除了部件的真实性之外,该公司还设想未来在整个维护生命周期中更广泛地使用区块链。特别是保险公司,他们通常会购买原装零部件,但会更换通用零部件。但在未来,使用的原始部件将与汽车的维修记录相关联。


当汽车修理厂扫描车牌号时,它会列出汽车的所有部件。维修公司会把维修记录在汽车的历史上。换句话说,它将创建一个电子日志。区块链允许与经销商、修理厂、保险公司、制造商和车主共享数据。


地图平台还使用机器学习来预测零部件供应的任何延误。


现代的其他各种业务也在利用区块链。例如,为商用车提供租赁和金融服务的现代商业(Hyundai Commercial)正在使用IBM的供应链金融解决方案。


丰田和宝马等其他汽车制造商也在为汽车零部件供应链探索区块链。

 

Hyundai MOBIS, the auto manufacturer’s parts subsidiary, has launched a new parts software system MAPS (Most Advanced Parts System), that leverages AI and blockchain. The platform will be used for distributing after sales (AS) parts for 300 models of Hyundai and Kia cars.

As many as 100,000 people will access the system across the supply chain, including 16,000 dealers in more than 200 countries. The IT system supports three million different parts for 300 car models.

Blockchain is being piloted to verify that a part is original. The auto company raised concerns that illegal counterfeit parts are used in some countries, which could result in safety issues. Hence a car owner can scan the QR code on the packaging to verify the part is authentic. 

However, Hyundai MOBIS only referred to fake parts, whereas another common issue is repair companies charging the full price for original parts but instead using generic parts. In this case, the parts might not create safety issues, but the customer isn’t getting what they paid for.

Beyond parts authenticity, the company envisages the future broader use of blockchain throughout the maintenance life cycle. It’s particularly insurers that often pay for original parts but have generic parts substituted. But in the future, the original parts used will be associated with a car’s maintenance record. 

When the vehicle number is scanned at a repair shop, it will list all the car’s parts. And the repair firm will log the maintenance in the car’s history. In other words, it will create an electronic log book. Blockchain enables the data to be shared with the dealer, repair shop, insurer, manufacturer and car owner.

The MAPS platform also uses machine learning to predict any delays in part supplies.

Various other Hyundai businesses are leveraging blockchain. For example, Hyundai Commercial, which provides leasing and financial services for commercial vehicles, is using an IBM solution for supply chain finance.

Other car manufacturers such as Toyota and BMW are also exploring blockchain for the auto parts supply chain.
