The global problem
What seems to be a problem is that it is often impossible for both companies and private car owners to make a car available to many potential users who could share it. It primarily concerns companies that do not rent cars, but possess, nevertheless, many vehicles driven by their employees exclusively. If not driven, the cars remain ‚idle’ and generate additional costs. The solution we present leads to optimising the maintainance cost of the vehicles.
Also, it makes it possible for the employees to use the cars after work (and to pay the employer for that). Similarly, our solution, which is blockchaincars.io (a part of the Blockchain of Things concept) would make the cars available to other companies and people as well. Thus, the Blockchaincars.io project involves the optimising of the market resources (such as cars, for instance) in the innovative economy of the 21st century, i.e. Sharing Economy.
Report: Rethinking Transportation 2020-2030: The Disruption of Transportation and the Collapse of the Internal-Combustion Vehicle and Oil Industries. It indicates a market trend that changes the approach to cars from ownership to usage. In 2025, every 5th car registered in the US will be a car destined to rent for hours, days and so on.
The value of the solution for users and the market
The platform users can use four basic programmable, functional models:
Cars usage by many people, access management for household members, family and friends. Project in development for KIA.
A tool for corporations and organizations for internal use, e.g. cars of sales representatives, UBER drivers. Key management (access) and optimization within companies.
Generating activity on the platform, the ability to create an offer. A tool designed to provide company resources (car fleets for individuals, organization, freedom in shaping the form of access: paid, free.)
A tool for closed groups only between partners managing a shared set of vehicles.
It is a platform connecting its users and the companies, providing an opportunity to create new economic projects and service delivery models, and enabling resource optimization.
