IBM, the American multinational technology company in collaboration with Burberry, has developed Voyage – a prototype of product traceability technology.
The development is a part of the tech supplier’s internship programme with the theme ‘Sustainability in Fashion’.
The participant students were tasked with designing, development and testing of an innovative new product for an IBM client. The work was been done in collaboration with Burberry’s digital experts.
Voyage uses IBM Public Cloud and the IBM Blockchain platform to create the product traceability. The customers using the technology can trace the garment journey and lifecycle while learning more about the process involved in its creation.
It works by identifying a product via scanning a near-field communication tag or by entering a product ID. The customers can also configure their own sustainability preferences and receive tailored product recommendations.
The users are also allowed to add any additional stages in a product’s journey like recycling and upcycling.
