Gluon – An Intelligent Connected Automotive Marketplace

About us banner

What we do

Despite recent advances in automotive technologies such as self-parking and self-driving vehicles coupled with the improvement of alternative fuel sources, passenger vehicles, auto part purchases, sales and fuel dispensing have been largely left out of the connectivity discussion.

Gluon’s platform and suite of products addresses this by bringing many of the new technology advances such as IoT, data analytics, machine learning, to block chain to create a connected mobility platform to bring in unmatched efficiencies and productivity.

What we bring

Gluon’s platform and its suite of products establishes an interconnected network of vehicles where individuals and businesses can monitor, track and diagnose the issues on them.

Gluon’s suite of products covers auto parts, auto shops, fuel stations covering a broad spectrum of automotive ecosystem.

The Stratis ICO platform is a powerful demonstration of the Stratis technology and its versatility, coupled with their comprehensive approach is what Gluon was searching for. Their powerful BaaS platform has been developed from the ground up in C# and Microsoft .NET framework and is easily deployable within the cloud, which in turn allows Gluon to seamlessly integrate the Stratis platform into their existing infrastructure. Innovation and security are paramount for both Gluon and Stratis, so this partnership was well-aligned from its inception.

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, eCommerce 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.

For an MVP ready project the only competitors we can think tackle only smaller segments of what we have developed. Not a comprehensive product or platform.

MTC is an affiliated organization. They are an auto parts manufacturer and wholesaler in business for over 30 years. Some members of the Gluon team are also founders of that successful company. They provide access to parts, inventory and sales data to Gluon. MTC is also one of the venture backers for Gluon.

Device and server communication is secured. The tuning files themselves can be reversed to stock at anytime by the end user.

 At a very high level Blockchain allows us to not only accept secure payments, but also records independently verifiable data such as, but not limited to, repairs (for individual vehicles and fleets that are audited and need to prove sanctity of data), order history from manufacturers to distributors, inventory control for distributors/retailers, emissions related records that we are working on currently to certify in California. The picture below illustrates how Gluon will be utilizing the blockchain built on the Stratis platform.

stratis platform

We understand the concern of why blockchain is necessary to Gluon rather than a central database. The premise of blockchain technology is to provide an independently verifiable data where the entity consuming this data is sure of its sanctity. The use cases identified by Gluon does just that where blockchain will play the role of the keeper of truth. e.g. for fleet management, it would provide the benefit to remove fraudulent activity in reporting and compliance purposes. There is a requirement for the fleets to fill the DVCR (Driver Vehicle Condition Report) to ensure compliance. These DVCR’s have a lot of fraudulent activity in filing. Gluon is striving to automate this activity and record the necessary pieces in blockchain so it cannot be tampered. This would help Fleet Managers earn the trust of the Audit agencies thereby benefiting them as well as the enforcers of these regulations. Similarly, a potential exists for the other use cases identified by Gluon such as Vehicle Emissions which can then be expanded for commercial purposes.

 

We have released our enterprise product. The consumer product is going through FCC testing at the moment and will be available in just a few months. The main difference is size and on board embedded cellular. Under contract we could send you an enterprise device to review.

How to connect gluon device

Above, please see the Gluon OBD connectivity diagram. We at Gluon spent years developing and fine-tuning our own hardware, developed 100% from the ground up. We added everything we could possibly want from voltage sensors, temperature sensors, accelerometers, data storage, Wi-Fi, 3G/4G LTE, Bluetooth and most importantly the ability to futureproof the device by allowing any changes or upgrades to be done in-house. We have the ability to update our device firmware over the air. The Gluon V1 device is FCC/CE/E24 approved and our V2 device for consumer and emissions regulations is currently in the FCC certification stage.

Quite simply, we go above and beyond the basics.

Below is commonly where we see our competitors limited. The vast majority of OBD “connected” car companies use an off the shelf device to connect vehicles and gather basic information like speed, fuel, rpm, etc.

Token Sale FAQ

Yes, the token sale page (Click here) contains a link to an update request form. Look for this line “Want to update a previously submitted entry? Use contact us form.

This is not a final registration but only to get the initial information and date/times assigned for our contributors. We will likely be integrating a KYC process as well. More information of how to contribute will be published well before the ICO.

STRAT is the preferred and best way to pay for GLU. The Stratis platform will convert all non-STRAT currencies to STRAT uses Changelly during the Token Sale.

It will be deployed using the Stratis platform.

Our smart contract is going to be developed with the help of Stratis consultancy. They will help us deploy an instance of the ICO platform on our private server for the ICO.

We are working with Onfido for the KYC verification process waiting a contract for their services. https://onfido.com/

  •  Code for Gluon platform and product is proprietary
  •  Blockchain code will be published
