posted 3 months ago
South Korean automotive giant Hyundai unveiled a new innovation allowing users to customize primary functions using a smartphone appl. The ‘smartphone-electric vehicle pairing based performance adjustment technology’ will enable drivers to adjust 7 performance features – the maximum torque output of the motor, ignition, acceleration and deceleration abilities, regenerative braking capacity, maximum speed limit, responsiveness, and energy use on climate control.

Hyundai said that the system will use blockchain technology to ensure security while users upload and share their custom settings on the server. During the process of uploading and sharing custom settings, the system will encrypt major performance parameters in a blockchain network by creating new data blocks and store them in the distributed data storage system to block unauthorized manipulation. Notably, vehicles allow modification so altering performance doesn’t change the carbon footprint.
