A research paper with implications for IOTA‘s future implementation was released in pre-print seven months ago entitled, “On Congestion Control for Distributed Ledgers in Adversarial IoT Networks”. The authors listed on the paper include three members of the Dyson School of Design Engineering at Imperial College London, and two researchers at the IOTA Foundation.

The three members from Imperial include Andrew Cullen (a 2020 IBM PhD fellow), Pietro Ferraro (research associate), and Robert Shorten (professor and highly accomplished researcher). This group has been extremely active in the mobility space for the past two years – the titles of their papers speak for themselves:

1) Distributed Ledger Technology for Smart Mobility: Variable Delay Models (2019)

2) Ad-hocChain: Cooperative Sharing and Trading Infrastructure for Electric Vehicle Charging Networks (2019)

3) Spatial Positioning Token (SPToken) for Smart Mobility (2019)

4) On the Resilience of DAG-based Distributed Ledgers in IoT Applications (2020)

5) On Congestion Control for Distributed Ledgers in Adversarial IoT Networks (2020)

‍Professor Shorten himself has a resume dripping with experience and exuding gravitas. He was co-founder and director of the Hamilton Institute, department head at IBM research (leading the Control and Optimization Team at the Smart City Research lab), and is now professor of cyber-physical systems in the engineering school (with associations at both ICL and University College Dublin). He lists his interests: “Smart Mobility and Smart Cities; Control Theory and Dynamics; Hybrid Dynamical Systems; Networking; Linear Algebra; Sharing Economy; DAG based distributed ledgers.”
