IOTA foundation shared on November 30 a blog entry and published a tutorial video detailing how to build an EV charging app using IOTA’s newly launched workplace on the High Mobility platform. The partnership announced earlier in November will allow developers to build, test and publish apps using a standardized connected car API, based on IOTA’s distributed ledger technology while providing developers with subsequent software development kits and sample codes for programming.
The first stage of the partnership brought an established IOTA workplace, featuring a first blueprint, or a sample code for an app that allows users to pay for their electric vehicle charging service using MIOTA Tokens. IOTA just announced through a medium post that the smart charging blueprint would be the first of many to follow in the near future.

A video tutorial shared by IOTA Foundation’s Official Youtube Channel on November 30, details the steps to follow for anyone with a basic software development background in order to run the code for an application that simulates the charging and payment process between an electric vehicle and a charging terminal. IOTA made the sample code available for everyone to copy and build on top in the GitHub repository.
After registering on the High Mobility Platform, developers should first create a new Cloud App under “Apps/Develop.” Then, they should copy the Node JS code from the client certificate into a copy of the open source sample code from GitHub. This step will connect the source code to the application just created.
