I discovered it because it is built into the new A Class sat nav.

This is the website.
https://what3words.com/

And our address.. well this is where the Morgan lives...
///constants.imparts.sensible

Looking at the Ts&Cs it is a UK firm.
Companies House lists active directors including one from an investment firm and one from Daimler AG. The names are all on the listings but no signs of who is the driving force although I suspect that one Director is an academic. Looks like the firm has been active for quite a while.

And the people developing autonomous transport?

I have installed the phone app...it links to google maps perfectly. No more entering complex addresses.

Started using it a few weeks ago, very good and apparently developed by two British ladies.

I don't see what purpose it serves. Maybe a bit easier to remember than geographic coordinates but an address or in the case of the UK a postcode would seem just as easy for navigation.

By the way it is different depending on language. In Italian your Mog is at ///stucco.conduciamo.includete

PS. I'm not sure you should tell thewholeworldwhereitis. If you want to modify it while you still have time let me know and I will change my post too.
