Ford is testing a pilot program that involves the use of blockchain technology that will aid in improving fuel efficiency.

The pilot program has been taking place in London and Valencia and has now also been extended to Cologne Germany. The technology of blockchain is used to monitor and automatically implement fuel-efficient driving modes.

Ford has released 10 plug-in hybrid electric cars with cellular modems that enable geofencing in Cologne. When these cars enter into zones of low emissions the car via the use of blockchain technology will automatically switch to electric drive thus being more energy-efficient.

Gunnar Herrmann, chairman of the management board, Ford-Werke GmbH commented,

Security, trust and transparency of emissions data are of paramount importance to all stakeholders in this project and are key for our vision of cleaner air in the city.

The pilot test has been welcomed in Cologne as it is a part of the SmartCity Cologne, which is a collaboration to promote climate protection and energy transition to green energy.
