Many cities now have low-emission zones to prevent the passage of heavily polluting vehicles. In order to adapt to this policy, Ford began testing geofence and blockchain technology to allow vehicles to automatically switch driving modes.
Ford recently extended its European plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) test to Cologne, Germany . In addition, Ford tested plug-in hybrids on the streets of London and Valencia, Spain, to better analyze and demonstrate the practical benefits that such vehicles can bring to environmental, commercial vehicle owners and operators.
Ford worked with five municipal teams and the city of Cologne to test nine Ford Transit Custom plug-in hybrid vans and a Tourneo Custom plug-in hybrid Volkswagen in a variety of real-world use cases. In addition, Ford will also look at how innovative geofencing technology and blockchain technology can help accurately track and increase the “green miles” of cars.
Blockchain is a data security technology that supports certain digital technologies that create permanent, time-stamped data records that can be stored on multiple computers and can be followed by new records or "blocks". Increase and increase. Geofence technology creates virtual geographic boundaries defined by GPS technology.
