Britain’s biggest car-maker, Jaguar Land Rover, is testing software which will reward drivers for sharing data. With ‘smart wallet’ technology installed in their vehicles, drivers will earn the IOTA cryptocurrency for automatically reporting traffic and road data.
According to the New York Times, the company is testing the software at one of its facilities in Ireland. Engineers have fitted ‘smart wallets’ to vehicles including the Jaguar F-PACE and Range Rover Velar. By enabling automatic data-sharing, the driver can receive IOTA reward credits whilst going about their everyday driving.
