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. 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 products, consumers and fleet managers can connect their vehicles with manufacturers, parts suppliers, and repair shops. They can diagnose their vehicles themselves, order parts, and request bids on repairs. Consumers can tune their vehicles for optimal performance and/or to regulate their use. Repair shops can diagnose vehicles more cost effectively and accurately order the correct parts. They can also promote their shops to new markets. Autoparts distributors can track and distribute parts more efficiently. All of these aforementioned constituents can pay for all this using traditional payment methods and cryptocurrency blockchain payments, including our GLU tokens.
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.
