Jaguar is testing rewarding drivers IOTA in exchange for sharing data

British car manufacturer Jaguar is considering rewarding car drivers who choose to share car data, Reuters writes. The company is currently testing software that would let car drivers earn IOTA; the tokens could then be used to pay for tolls, parking and charging for electric cars. To get rewards, drivers would need to enable automatic data reporting, for instance, regarding traffic information or potholes to navigation providers or local authorities.

Moreover, rewards will be also available to drivers taking part in Jaguar’s ride-sharing program. Jaguar its plan is to “achieve zero emissions, zero accidents, and zero congestion.” Jaguar is testing the technology at Jaguar Land Rover software engineering base in Shannon, Ireland. However, it has not yet created a timeline for product commercialization. The price of IOTA is up 19% since the news broke.
