Concern “Ford”  will teach its cars to communicate by means of blockchain

The Ford Global Technologies, LLC automobile concern develops the system of exchange of information between vehicles on a basis of blockchain technologies. The corresponding patent application published the day before by United States Patent and Trademark Office.

The document named “Cooperation between Vehicles for Regulation of Traffic” describes the system allowing cars to communicate for reduction of congestion of transport networks.

The main attention is paid to the ways to reduce the number of traffic jams. To fight against them, experts from Ford offer a communication method between vehicles for coordination of speeds. According to inventors, it will allow to level, in particular, the negative effects caused by “psychology of drivers who think only of their own interests and time of coming to the destination”.

The document also describes the “Cooperatively Managed Merge and Pass” (CMMP) which “traces, writes down and estimates behavior of participants of traffic”.

Besides, it is noted that for exchange of information between vehicles special tokens of CMMP will be used.

It is remarkable that on the basis of system it’s planned to create a peculiar “exchange of time” within which drivers will be able to use various quantity of tokens depending on the degree of their need.
