"by way of making use of the electronic apparatus of the present disclosure to a car (i.e., a node), believe can be transferred between uncorrelated entities the use of the [blockchain] generation, and real and valid real-time road conditions information is obtained in real-time according to the consensus," they wrote. "In this way, decentralized real-time road conditions observation and further a navigation system may be realized."
