Following their successful appearance at the Hannover Messe, the IDS was also a topic on Deutschlandfunk radio: in the “Forschung aktuell” (“Current research”) programme, Ulrich Ahle, IDSA board member and CEO of the FIWARE Foundation, explained the objectives of IDS, gave an overview of the reference architecture’s components and spoke about standards and data sovereignty.

When asked about scenarios that predict that a car manufacturer will be able to access its suppliers’ machine data, something that the suppliers might not be so pleased about, he explained: “This is exactly where our data sovereignty comes into play. Data sovereignty enables the owner of the machine, the buyer of the machine to define who is allowed to access his data, to whom his data is made available and what the recipient of this data is allowed to do with it.”
