Decentralized Autonomous Vehicles (DAV)

A cryptocurrency to fuel the next era of global transportation: Decentralized Autonomous Vehicles (DAV). DAV is a computer network that will connect self-driving vehicles (such as cars, trucks, rovers, and drones) to everyone on that network, enabling them to discover, communicate, and transact using the DAV Token. Users can pay for the use of any of those vehicles with a token to get a ride or pick up and deliver a package. People who own those vehicles or the charging stations on the network can earn tokens for the services they provide. Users can have an entire network of self-driving vehicles at their fingertips to bring them anything, or to take them anywhere, with one token. Even in today’s transportation market, and during the transitional period before autonomous transportation achieves mass adoption, the decentralized transportation network and its underlying technology can create a variety of economic opportunities such as decentralized, on demand, manned, rides and deliveries.

PROBLEM/SOLUTION

Problem

Today, large corporations have already begun experimenting with fleets of autonomous vehicles: Domino’s pizza delivery robots, Amazon’s Prime Air drones, Waymo’s autonomous taxis, and Baidu’s open-source self-driving cars are all leading the way towards fully autonomous transportation systems.Centralization and narrow economic interests restrict the pace at which transformative technologies can be released and adopted by the market, as the key players are focused on dominating their own isolated networks, and not on creating a collaborative infrastructure that is more efficient and has higher potential for more diverse use cases in the long run. A lack of incentives to collaborate across various value chains stifles the pace of progress in the sector. An open-source platform that is inclusive and permissionless provides economic incentives for multiple participants to join the network and enjoy its future growth in a way that allows for much more rapid scaling.

Solution

By open-sourcing the DAV technology stack and decentralizing protocols around identity, discovery, mission flow, and payments, provided through a modular UI, DAV enables cooperation. New players can enter the market, creating distributed value and growing participation in the transportation economy. A decentralized open source network means that players can independently take action in response to unfilled or poorly filled market needs.

TECHNICAL FUNCTIONALITY

The DAV network, as a developer-centric platform, creates SDKs for popular development platforms and APIs. It actively encourages developers to take part, making it easy for any developer to participate and contribute within their domain of expertise. The technology behind the DAV network is a stack of open-source software with a developed UI for simple interaction, which enables a truly autonomous, fast-scaling transportation system.

Discovery
Decentralized discovery provides the tools for different DAV identities to discover each other in a decentralized way. It represents the difference between a world where introducing a vehicle to a new environment requires building a support structure around it (e.g., charging and service stations, parking, etc.) and a truly connected world where any autonomous vehicle can operate in any environment, consuming services around it as the need arises.
