Cobol Transportation

Cobol brings blockchain technology and decentralization to the autonomous transportation industry.

More Efficient

With the implementation of blockchain technology, ride share and travel companies will no longer be necessary or economical. Cobol cuts out the middle man, and drives prices down.

Easier

Cobol tokens will be used for all transportation fees, and the blockchain technology involved will automate and simplify the process. The users will own the data.

Cheaper

Drivers won't need to be compensated, and neither will a certain rideshare company. Decentralization and autonomous technology make transportation more affordable.

Cobol is the first company to provide decentralized autonomous transportation for the average consumer, with the implementation of block chain technologies.</p

Decentralized Autonomous Transportation


Cobol is the first company to provide decentralized autonomous transportation for the average consumer, with the implementation of block chain technologies. A user can request a car using their computer, phone or watch. Moments later, a self-driving car will arrive at the user’s location, and drive them to their destination. The user pays using Cobol tokens, and is charged on a per mile basis. Cobol is similar to that of a ride share program, yet decentralized and more efficient. This is an economical solution to the rapidly growing costs of owning and upkeeping a vehicle. With Cobol, traveling and transportation will become cheaper and easier.

Executive Summary


Autonomous transportation is transforming from fiction to reality, faster than previously anticipated.

Pilotless planes and drones are already in use by many countries and militaries. It won’t be long until autonomous air travel will be widely available to the average consumer.

Autonomous ground transportation however, is currently an actuality for consumers. All of the major automobile companies recognize the potential of this new and growing industry, and have made researching/manufacturing these autonomous vehicles a top priority. Computerized sensors and cameras make it possible for these vehicles to drive to a specified destination, without assistance/intervention from a human.

The Problem


As the future of autonomous transport approaches, it is becoming less viable to own an automobile.

In the transportation industry, there are excessive costs which continue to grow as the technology improves and the expenses rise. Purchasing a vehicle is an expensive investment. Looking past the original price of a vehicle, the costs hit new levels, considering the spending on gas, maintenance and insurance. Owning a car is generally useful for many consumers, but statistically, the car is sitting in a driveway or garage much longer than being used. This is inefficient.

Cars are being manufactured with “autonomous” or “self-driving” capabilities. These advances in technology allow us to eliminate inefficiency, but as the complexity of cars and automotive technology increases, the price of the vehicle increases as well, making the investment of an automobile less viable.

In a few years, owning an autonomous vehicle won’t be practical for the average consumer.

Cobol’s Solution


Cobol aims to provide decentralized transportation for the average consumer. The creation of autonomous technology allows an automobile to drive to a destination, only using help from its own computers/sensors.

As mentioned before, it isn’t efficient or economical to own a vehicle with these autonomous capabilities springing up throughout the automobile industry. If 200 people each pay $50,000 for an autonomous car, that’s a lot of money. Imagine if these 200 consumers instead have access to a fleet of 50 autonomous vehicles deployed by Cobol. The vehicles are readily accessible to each of the users, awaiting a request for transportation. Each consumer can access the Cobol app on their computer, phone or watch to call a car to their location, specifying where they would like to go. The vehicle drives itself to the customers location, then drives them to their destination.

Rideshare and taxi services aren’t economical, because the costs are risen to compensate the drivers commission, and the rideshare/taxi organization itself. Decentralized autonomous transport eliminates these extra costs.
