At the core of what we do at Dig.y.SoL is picoChain™. It is a compact oversight platform capable of running in a high-end microcontroller footprint. Yet, it can contain deep understanding of a machine, device, or process under oversight.
It is based on the well-established Actors model of computation. But, this platform focuses on the essence of what makes the Actors model run.
picoChain™ consists of 2 parts:
- a model that describes a set components and their interactions that make up a machine, device, or process.
- a model inferencing core which continually takes incoming information relevant to the model and operates the model to verify the operation of its associated device or enable its associated process.

This is one estimate of the required global infrastructure upgrades needed to cope with the transition to electric vehicles over the next 2 decades.
This evolutionary, global transition in personal, public, and freight transportation towards electric vehicles is a established fact. But, how can one cope?
Our lifestyles and work life have become one where on-demand , “here-and-now”, fulfillment of requests has become the norm. So too will be electric vehicle charging.
As global power suppliers adjust to an ever-evolving demand wave, there is need for a system to intelligently manage on-demand charging stemming from an ever-growing number of electric vehicles without disrupting critical daily power supply.
EV.Re™, a picoChain™ derivative, takes into account the dynamic nature of power demand in a constrained grid environment. It is an embedded, intelligent, secure distributed system that automatically balances available grid resources against on-demand charging requests from individual electric vehicles.
EV.Re™ consists of 3 components:
- a device on board an electric vehicle that retrieves and “negotiates” an on-demand charging schedule with the power supplier,
- a charging monitor software component residing at a grid site that reviews a charge request and communicates a “negotiated” charging schedule to the charging site device,
- a simple blockchain tracker refining the “negotiation” process over time.
