What kind of car do you drive? No matter what kind of vehicle you choose to opt for for your daily transportation in leisure or business, some would say that the car makes the man. New technologies are bringing forward the motor vehicle industry with electric cars becoming the new way to help not only save the environment but travel around for all reasons.
One car manufacturer, Jaguar Land Rover has just teamed up with the IOTA Foundation in order to use the DLT solution to help develop a number of innovative technologies which are focused on fighting against some of the problems faced today in the motor industry. With the British car manufacturer using the new technologies at hand, it will be focusing mainly on traceability which is one of the main ways IOTA DLT will be used for by the manufacturer.
Speaking in an interview on YouTube posted by Silicon Republic, Aaron Hetherington (the software engineer at Jaguar Land Rover) explained his role at the firm and as a member of the distributed ledger technology team to help further the technologies in the vehicles they manufacture. Specifically, he said that the team is going to help track potholes all over the United Kingdom and Ireland.
Hetherington said that this is going to be done by monitoring when the vehicle with IOTA DLT comes across a pothole in the road. This information will then be sent to local councils in the counties who will then have to act to fix such nuisances on the road.
