An external adapter that allows getting access to Tesla cars and change their state has become available on the Chainlink market.
It was developed by blockchain/DLT architect Harry Papacharissiou during the Chainlink Virtual Hackathon whose winners were announced earlier this month.
While there are already in-built core adopters, external adopters allow adding customized functionality.
There is no need to run your own Chainlink node given that external adapters can be hosted by other nodes in order to ensure decentralization.
Papacharissiou’s adapter, dubbed “Link My Ride,” was created with the help of Tesla’s feature-rich API that allows interacting with the e-car manufacturer’s vehicles and other devices such as Powerwall batteries.
