To put it simply,

A physical device (like a smartphone or one of our SentinelX devices) in the XYO network that broadcasts a signal with its location and other data (like time, or the temperature). When the sentinel is near another sentinel and they broadcast that they are near each other, this is an interaction that is proof of the sentinel’s location.

This interaction is called a bound witness.

When the sentinel is near another sentinel and they broadcast that they are near each other, this is an interaction that is proof of the sentinel’s location.

A real world example of this might be proof of location for a fleet of vehicles.

Given a fleet of trucks that are moving cargo from a vendor to a customer. Typically you would get confirmation that the truck arrived at its destination from the signature or other form of confirmation from the customer.

With a sentinel placed in each of the trucks it will be able to interact and bound witness with other sentinels (smartphone sentinels and/or other sentinel devices) as it travels along its route to the customer. These bound witness interactions signed off by bridges and then sent to an archivist create an origin chain of bound witness interactions that can store relative distance, temperature, time, and other heuristics that the sentinels provide.

This contributes to a story of how the truck left the vendor and arrived at the customer without a need for a confirmation, or better, an automated confirmation upon arrival at the customer location.

What is a Sentinel to a developer?

A node in the XYO network that broadcasts a signal with its location and any other requested data (such as time of day, temperature, etc). When this node is near another node and they broadcast that they are near each other, this is an interaction referred to as a bound witness. This interaction serves as a certain proof of the node’s location.

A BLE simple tracker, SentinelX, and/or mobile device is an ideal platform for Sentinel integration.
