Gluon’s platform establishes an interconnected network of vehicles where individuals and businesses can monitor, track, tune, and diagnose the issues on them. Despite recent advances in automotive technologies such as self-parking and self-driving vehicles coupled with the improvement of alternative fuel sources, passenger vehicles have been largely left out of the connectivity discussion. Using the Gluon platform (IoT, Cloud Platform, AI, and Blockchain), individuals and businesses are able to compete and benefit from a rapidly changing marketplace.Even with the advent of the Internet of Things, most vehicles today utilize technology to track and report on one vehicle at a time, and only when they are at the repair shop.
With Gluon’s platform -individuals and businesses can connect their vehicles and businesses with manufacturers, parts suppliers, repair shops, and other service providers within the network. Not only can customers diagnose their vehicles themselves, order parts, and request bids on repairs, but they can schedule repairs, send/receive payments for services and goods. Consumers can tune their vehicles for optimal performance and/or regulate their use. Repair shops can diagnose vehicles more cost-effectively and accurately order the correct parts. Vehicle service record, repairs, diagnostics, smog tests are all stored in the Gluon secure blockchain based on the Stratis Platform. Consumers and businesses are given the flexibility and security of paying with and/or receiving cryptocurrency payments in addition to traditional forms of payments. They can also promote their shops to new markets. Auto parts distributors can track and distribute parts more efficiently. Gluon is issuing its own utility token for consumers and businesses to use within the platform or through any third party that adopts usage of it. We want to tie the automotive marketplace with a robust solution.
Gluon’s model is based on generating multiple revenue streams including, but not limited to, hardware sales, software subscriptions, advertising, monitoring services, diagnostic services, data services, e-commerce parts sales, and blockchain transaction processing. Gluon products will enable developers to create ancillary applications that will run on the platform, enhancing its functionality and broadening its appeal.
