Our Patented, Next-Generation Mobility Ecosystem for Self-Driving Cars

Invest in Tribal Rides

Tribal Rides is designing the next generation of ride-sharing apps, which will work with self-driving cars. With our revolutionary blockchain technology, you can be your own Uber. 

Currently in development stage, our application will let anyone manage their self-driving car, share it with their family and friends, and coordinate rides among their community. We also intend to launch a utility token that will handle payments in the system. 

Our design will create more efficient ride-sharing, alleviate road congestion, increase driving safety and create convenience for millions of people.

The Social Internet of Vehicles is a powerful tool that consumers will use to manage self-driving cars. We are building an ecosystem that will include networking software designed to meet the needs of consumers in a personalized and optimized manner.

Using existing social networks, on and offline, Tribal Rides will changing the way we commute. Our patented approach will provide smaller customized transportation networking solutions that are more efficient at promoting ride sharing, optimizing routes, departure times and locations, all while keeping you connected to those in your life.

We are on the cutting edge of technology, using the newest blockchain methods to create a tool that we believe will be unique and revolutionary. Our patent is designed to address emerging technologies like blockchain and IoT and to provide community benefits for small group behavior and collaborative consumption.

Tribal Rides is taking advantage of these emerging technologies and  optimizing the way we travel, changing our entire relationship with transportation.

Development Stage

Tribal Rides product is currently still in the development stage.  We have completed Phase 1: Configuration, which included configuring our Intellectual Property (IP), putting together our team, and establishing industry partnerships.  We are currently in progress of Phase 2: System Development.  During this phase, we intend to raise capital in order to complete the following objectives:

  • System and utility token development
  • Initial OEM partnerships with companies that might include: Waymo, GM, Ford, Tesla, and the other 52 self-driving car manufacturers
  • Partnerships with rental car companies
  • Partnerships with ride share companies

Once Phase 2 is completed, we will launch Phase 3: Initial Product Introduction, and then Phase 4: Self-Driving Car Roll-out.

An ecosystem for Ride-Sharing and Autonomous Driving

How it Works

Tribal Rides works through our patented SMART Deployment logistics computing, which will communicate with cars themselves and allow the network to flow seamlessly. This means your self-driving car is there for you when you need it and out making money for you when you don't. 

Similar to ride share applications currently on the market,

with GoTopia you will be able to order a vehicle the moment you need it or schedule a ride in advance. Unlike the ride share services we have now, you never have to be in the car with strangers. Using existing social networks, online and off, GoTopia will optimize schedules and rides, allowing you to connect and catch up, all while getting where you need to go. We are turning the online into the offline, utilizing the most advanced technology in the process.

Our Software-as-a-Solution (SaaS) on the cloud is being designed to allow consumers to easily access and manage the use of transportation services from any number of self-driving cars. Whether this is a fleet of vehicles or a single car shared among a group, a user can summon a car and is in control of where that car goes and who it goes with. This can be particularly appealing to those wary of riding with strangers. 

We plan to use blockchain, Thinking Machines, Computer Vision, Self Positioning techniques and more Smart Deployment© to better predict the impact self-driving cars will have on transportation markets. Through the design of sophisticated algorithms and heuristics applied to both Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, our ground-breaking mobility platform will allow consumers to customize, personalize, and manage their local transportation experience, reducing their costs for local ground transportation.

Our Five Key Concepts

Self Driving Cars

“Self-Driving Car” or “SDC” shall mean the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration’s designated “Level 4” autonomous vehicles; i.e. cars that have the capability to drive anywhere on America’s streets and highways without any human on board for the entire trip. These SDCs can go anywhere by themselves.

On-Demand Transportation

A method and system for receiving transportation demand requests from consumers in real time, and where demand requests are matched with available transportation resources in real time by location.

Pre-Scheduled Transportation

A method and system for consumers to enter transportation demand requests in advance of their transportation need, and where these demand requests are matched with available SDC transportation resources in a pre-scheduled time/location synchronization.

Self-Positioning Cars

Refers to the capability of SDCs to move to a particular location at a particular time without active human involvement. Instructions on positioning are relayed by computer to the SDCs and can be issued either in advance or in real time.

Self-Deploying Cars

Where the positioning of SDCs results from computer generated time/location instructions that are calculated using a multitude of inputs not limited to real-time or pre-scheduled demand requests.

The Benefits of Using Tribal Rides

The benefits of using Tribal Rides are ever expanding and will continue to unfold as the platform is developed and deployed, but for now, here are a few reasons why and how one will use Tribal Rides: 

Saving Lives

Deployment Planner was just one of many successfully released software decision support system applications designed and developed by some members of our Tribal Rides team. This particular system was originally developed for the National Science Foundation (NSF) and analyzes call demand for Emergency Response/First Responder entities, like ambulances and hospitals, and anticipates “future call volume” by geographical region and develops least-cost, best coverage, quickest response time schedules. It has been used by the largest ambulance companies and many hospitals in the U.S. to improve service, reduce cost, and provide quicker responses to accidents and emergencies – it can save lives.  

Generating Revenue

Most of the day, our car is sitting in the driveway, or a parking spot, or a garage. That is to say, we only use our cars a tiny fraction of the time. Tribal Rides is creating a way to make money off the time that our cars are not in use. Because this is an autonomous vehicle, while you're sitting at work, you can send the car into the ecosystem and generate revenue without ever having to lift a finger. Essentially, you can pay off your car through the blockchain, all by allowing it to do the work for you. 

Environmental and Fiscal Benefits

In the United States our cities are expanding, and the suburban daily automobile commute has proven un-scalable, and is overcrowding infrastructure. The average American spends nearly as much annually on cars, car expenses, and fuel as they do on housing. This is proving to be unsustainable both fiscally and environmentally. While electric vehicles reduce some of the environmental burden they don’t improve our clogged roadways or greatly reduce the cost burden of ownership. Ride sharing has become a popular alternative to taxi services and traditional car pools.

We believe the emergence of autonomous vehicles (self-driving cars) will bring another wave of transformation, making carpooling safer, easier and more convenient, therefore reducing the number of cars on the road and the level of damaging emissions. 

Expanding Car Ownership Models

Individual Owner

One person owns the car and, through the use of Tribal Rides, can garner revenue by deploying the vehicle when not in personal use. The owner will be able to use money earned to pay off the car or to use the money as they please. The constraints created make it so the car always services its owner first.

Group Owned

Any group of friends, family members, neighbors, etc. can go in together on the purchase of a vehicle. They have priorities over its use and schedules and, like the individually owned car, the car can go out and accrue revenue when it's not being used. Not only is this car now a means of connection within a community; it's a revenue source. 

Community Owned

A community, whether it be a school, a neighborhood, a workplace or another may purchase a fleet of vehicles that are accessible to those who reside in or take part in that community. This means a car can be sent out to take a group of kids to soccer practice and then upon dropping them off, take someone else to the grocery store, only to then be returned to a central location. 

Business Owned

A person looking to start a business may purchase a fleet of vehicles, or an existing business may do this, and use these cars primarily as a revenue-building endeavor. Much like existing car companies, they will be sent out to drive patrons to and from locations, but, unlike current ride share programs, they won't be driving without purpose waiting for the next fare, leading to more traffic and emissions; they will be traveling in the most optimized fashion. 

Non-Profit or Company Owned

Entities like churches, or large organizations may purchase a fleet of vehicles for their employees to use. The company operates as a central authority and is able to send out cars to manage demands. This could benefit companies who currently reimburse travel and parking costs, or it could be a more efficient way for employees to travel between multiple offices and locations within the company. 

Tribal Rides takes car sharing to the next level.

Go-Topia and the Blockchain

Tribal Rides is just one node on the network of our mobility ecosystem.  Car manufacturers, shared-ride applications, drones, trains, planes, and even bikes can be part of this overall mobility network.  The “blood” that flows through each of these nodes and that which helps reduce the overall costs is the GoTopia Token:  Go.

The Go Token is planned to be in all day-to-day transactions and is not designed to be an investment vehicle. GoTopia will help lower the middleman fees from rideshare transactions to deliver the cheapest possible rideshare network to users.

The network token, Go, may be used in transactions between Riders and Drivers and/or Riders and Owners to post transactions to the blockchain. 

To ensure that high usability is met, Tribal Rides hopes to ensure that end-user interfaces will primarily rely on the local market currency rather than Go tokens. Go tokens will remain a behind-the-scenes advantage, and currency conversion may occur automatically to ensure that end users can pay using the currency they prefer.

The Market

The total addressable driverless technology market is forecasted to add $7 trillion (with a “t”) to the global economy (Wired) and will save hundreds of thousands of lives in the next few decades.  We believe this revolution will significantly impact the automobile and oil industries, insurance companies, drive-thru restaurants, taxi drivers, eventually truckers, and others.

Companies like Tesla stand at the top of the self-driving car mountain. However, they are not alone. Currently, there are over 50 companies in California that are already testing autonomous car technology, and California is the largest car market in the U.S.  We want Tribal Rides to be at the center of this revolution.

In California, progress has also been made with regulators who have granted permission for truly driverless experimental cars. But, it is also important to note that other states besides California are making great strides in the adoption of self-driving car regulation. At last count, 21 states had passed legislation related to autonomous vehicles.  We believe that Tribal Rides is on the forefront of this revolution and has been for some time. 

The ability of self-driving cars to drive around empty might be a benefit for on-demand transportation providers like Uber, but this will negatively impact our already overcrowded roads at rush hour. That is where the genius of Tribal Rides comes in. Our model makes it so cars are only deployed exactly when they are needed while conserving time or resources.

The Social Internet of Vehicles

Many companies are seeking to use the power of the internet to connect people with self-driving cars. The mobile apps being developed by Uber, Lyft, GM Maven, and others have three components to the system; people with mobile apps, a network, and self-driving cars.

Our Solution

The Social Internet of Vehicles is a powerful tool that consumers can use to manage self-driving cars. Our premise is that car-sharing networks that people use on the cloud will be as diverse in design as the consumers that use them. We are building a suite of networking software solutions designed to meet the needs of more natural human groupings rather than the mass transit approach of Uber and the others. 

Our approach is to provide smaller customized transportation networking solutions that are more efficient at promoting ride sharing and other beneficial human behaviors. Our system is designed to address the scientific theories of small group behavior and collaborative consumption.

With Tribal Rides, you can be your own Uber.

The Social Aspect

Our user app and connecting to a social network will let users “talk” to their cars and coordinate rides with their friends and families, as well as schedule ride shares. A huge part of Tribal Rides is the community building and support.

A lot of criticism of social networking is derived from the fact that it takes away from face-to-face connections. With Tribal Rides, we are taking social networking offline. The current model plans on using existing networks of friends and family that can be uploaded directly from social media accounts, or can be created through neighbors and co-workers - people who you may not have an online relationship with. 

Users are no longer burdened with small talk with strangers or with feeling unsafe. They can now use travel time to strengthen existing relationships and see people who they don't ordinarily see.
