CON­NECTED CARS

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - DIGITAL LIFE -

Mo­bile tech­nol­ogy has never re­ally been able to en­ter the car till now. But in the past year, man­u­fac­tur­ers have started adding con­nec­tiv­ity to their cars. At CES 2013, Audi un­veiled its A3 with 4G LTE wire­less con­nec­tiv­ity pow­ered by the sec­ond gen­er­a­tion Gobi mul­ti­mode 3G/4G LTE chipset from Qual­comm Tech­nolo­gies. Audi hopes it will be able to pro­vide “en­hanced fea­tures” such as in­car Wi-Fi hotspot, In­ter­net ra­dio, web ser­vices and an aug­mented nav­i­ga­tion sys­tem that streams street level vis­ual im­agery into a screen in­side the ve­hi­cle.

“Our su­pe­rior soft­ware sup­ports a wide range of op­er­at­ing sys­tems, from Win­dows and Linux to An­droid and QNX, de­liv­er­ing the best plat­form for a range of ap­pli­ca­tions from in­stru­ment clus­ters to in­fo­tain­ment to ad­vanced driver as­sis­tance sys­tems,” - Vishal Dhu­par, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor – Asia South, NVIDIA.
