Warn fellow road users about potholes and earn cryptocurrency as you drive

New cars are getting cheaper but David Brown tells us how we might reduce ownership costs further.

David Brown – When it comes to owning a car, we usually consider costs like the price, the registration and the fuel bills.

But in this digital world, data collection can lead to some income.

Drivers might earn cryptocurrency using innovative connected car services currently being tested by Jaguar Land Rover.

Using ‘Smart Wallet’ technology, owners earn credits if their cars automatically report useful road condition data such as traffic congestion or potholes, and send it to navigation providers or local authorities. Drivers could then redeem these for rewards such as coffee, or use them to automatically pay tolls or parking fees.

It’s still in the test phase.
