Jaguar Land Rover – Testing Cryptocurrency
Posted in News | 29/04/2019
JLR are moving towards new technologies by allowing drivers to earn cryptocurrency and make payments on the move using innovative connected car services being tested by Jaguar Land Rover.
Using ‘Smart Wallet’ technology, owners acquire credits by using their cars to automatically report useful road condition data such as traffic congestion or potholes to navigation providers or local authorities. Drivers could then redeem these for rewards such as coffee, or easily use them to automatically pay tolls, parking fees and for smart charging electric vehicles. ‘Smart Wallet’ eliminates the need for drivers to find loose change or sign up to multiple accounts to pay for a variety of everyday services.
The 'Smart Wallet' system uses the latest cryptocurrency technology which will promote a move towards the future with Jaguar Land Rover’s Destination Zero strategy being the focal point. The strategy aims to achieve zero emissions, zero accidents and zero congestion.
