宝马公司采用区块链技术追踪租赁车辆行驶里程

宝马公司正在测试一个区块链平台,计划通过该平台来追踪租赁车辆的行驶里程。

DOVU是宝马公司创新实验室的产物,是与宝马集团英国公司合作的5家初创公司之一。

该公司产品负责人亚历克斯·莫里斯表示,DOVU开发的这套基于区块链的行驶里程记录系统,将帮助宝马公司了解这些被租用车辆的活动。

亚历克斯·莫里斯在接受CoinDesk的采访中表示,当司机参与到里程记录活动中时,他们会收到代币以换取他们的数据。

他补充说道:

我们希望在DOVU的这个平台上建立并实现循环经济。

司机可以赚取代币,也可以使用代币来获服务。

比如,他们可以在DOVU的生态系统中使用代币获得替换轮胎之类的服务。宝马在智能合约中定义了奖励的分类,只要符合相应的参数,用户就会收到代币。

莫里斯说,宝马此前采用的自动里程跟踪系统不可靠,而且提供的信息对公司来说并无实际用途。

现在,宝马选择通过里程来定义象征性奖励的参数,要求租用车辆的司机每周都记录他们的里程,并将这些数据存储在DOVU的区块链上。

莫里斯强调:

里程是他们汽车转售价值的最重要因素。司机对这种使用代币的激励方式也表示了肯定。

DOVU社区经理麦克斯表示,目前,该项目的概念性验证已经完成了。现在已经进入第二阶段,即实际使用阶段,这个阶段的测试还需要6到8周的时间来完成。

莫里斯表示:

我们计划让这种奖励系统能够跨越车辆。即不仅仅能够在DOVU的生态系统中使用,在宝马车使用,也能在别的车辆上使用。让司机通过这种方式赚取更多的代币,同时在整个生态系统中使用代币消费。

DOVU在此前已经获得了捷豹的风投公司支持,ICO金额达600万美金。

Global auto giant BMW is piloting a blockchain platform to track mileage in leased vehicles through its startup innovation program.

The effort is being carried out in partnership with blockchain startup DOVU - one of five startups to work with BMW Group UK as part of the company's Innovation Lab, first unveiled back in February. Specifically, DOVU developed a system with Alphabet,  BMW's fleet manager, to incentivize drivers to log mileage in leased or borrowed vehicles.

The idea is that the system helps BMW understand how much activity its vehicles are seeing and the impact on them, DOVU's head of product, Alex Morris, explained.

Morris told CoinDesk that drivers who participate receive tokens in exchange for their data, adding:

"What we're doing is we're essentially trying to build out this circular economy on the DOVU platform. [Drivers] can earn tokens, but down the line they'll also be able to spend tokens on services - for example, they might be able to get replacement tires or something like that using the Dovu ecosystem. The partner, in this case BMW, defined the categorization of the reward and that's defined in a smart contract. As long as the parameters are met for the smart contract, they'll receive tokens."

BMW chose to define the parameters for token rewards through mileage - the current automatic mileage tracking systems are unreliable, Morris said, and do not provide the information that the company might actually use.

As a result, the pilot program requires drivers of leased or borrowed vehicles to log their mileage weekly, which gets stored on DOVU's blockchain.

"Right now mileage is the most important factor for the resale value of their vehicles," he said. "The problem is quite an important one for them to solve, so when we suggested tokens to incentivize them to do that they were very excited."

The first part of the partnership - the proof-of-concept - has been completed already, said Max Lomuscio, who serves as DOVU's community manager. Now the startup is moving into the second phase, which is the actual trial with drivers. This portion should take another 6-8 weeks, he explained.

Ultimately, however, "the plan is to become this kind of ubiquitous rewards system that can work across vehicles, make some kind of unified wallet for token rewards that you can use on your BMW, but maybe jump into your second car and earn more tokens and then spend those throughout the ecosystem," according to Morris.

Beyond that, the startup wants to work with smart city environments, he said, and has already begun discussions with a few cities to determine how the earning and spending use cases can be incorporated into public transit and other aspects of a metropolitan area.

The project comes months after DOVU - previously backed by Jaguar's venture arm - completed a $6 million initial coin offering.
