Automatic payments and the Economy of Things are charging ahead with Vodafone IoT technology.
Electric cars can automatically pay for their own recharging using the latest evolution of Vodafone’s Internet of Things (IoT) technology.
With Vodafone’s Digital Asset Broker, motorists no longer have to use multiple apps for each charging point network that they use. A single app on their smartphone or tablet, which integrates with their existing mobile wallet, automatically communicates with any charging point that accepts Mastercard payments.
The app, which has an encrypted and authenticated digital identity tied to the SIM card and can be built into vehicles themselves, can automatically determine the compatibility, location, pricing and charging time of a charging point. Once authorised by the driver, it can pay for electricity used.
