Organizing data storage and processing

Data collection, storage and processing is conducted by the platform in a decentralized manner.

Spheroid.Earth is a decentralized network where the nodes use fog computing and IPFS for digitalizing our world into a 3D space with reference to geographical coordinates and its storage, essentially creating the Spheroid.Space

Network participants are rewarded through smart contracts. The network’s aim is the independent and self-sustained construction of the Geo3DAR reality.

The technology is based on:

  • Smart contracts – manage profits

  • Fog computing – virtual machine node mining, where incoming video processing requests are executed

  • Docker Container – containerization, which allows to quickly launch our environment on any server or computer

  • Kubernetes – Docker

  • AMQR task queue – task storage in network clusters

  • Open Source – set of programs for analyzing Spheroid network tasks

  • IPFS – Spheroid.Space storage nodes (3D Space models)

IPFS – is an 'interplanetary' file system, a decentralized Spheroid.Space storage of 3D Space models. It allows to implement reliable content storage and delivery. IPFS is used as the primary means of 3D model storage and delivery to the right spot at the right time. Models are stored at different nodes in close geographic proximity to corresponding territories. IPFS itself guarantees that the data will always be available via the permanent hashed link. The data is securely protected and continuously available as long as at least one node with this data is functional.

Fog computing – a decentralized pool of online devices

The roles in the decentralized Spheroid.Earth

  • Miners are FOG nodes holders, who use their machines for computing

  • Keepers are IPFS nodes holders, who aggregate Spheroid.Spaces

  • Scouts create a content stream from their smartphones for subsequent processing by miners
