2015 is here, and it’ll be many good things for the tech scene. Apparently, connected cars seem to be the next big thing. Currently, we are using the best of technology in our kitchens, sitting rooms and even wrists. Most of the more prominent technology manufacturers have been at the forefront when it comes to top tech innovation. Samsung has been one major contributor to the technology flare we have seen in the last one year.
In the International Consumer Electronics Show last year, the ‘internet of things’ became the biggest talking point. Although we haven’t seen very much in terms of innovation, there’s no doubt that connected cars will be a staggering reality in the next few days.
Mercedez-Benz, General Motors and Ford all seem to be at the forefront of this technology. And many more are still yet on board. This might give you the impression that just car companies have their hand at this technology, but this is not the case. Chipmaker Nvidia is set to be on the same track regarding cars.
Some companies have already released teasing models of what they’re doing in this regard. To start with, Hyundai has a new Display Audio unit, which connects with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay to make your automobile a full-fledged entertainment system.
Android Auto is the Android version for cars, which is still under development by Google. This operating system is designed to ensure maximum connectivity within cars, so users can just as easily plug their devices into cars, and the operating system is shown on the screen.
With this operating system for cars, drivers will be able to access their messages, phone calls as well as music, and more. Built in voice assistants such as Apple’s Siri and Google Now are meant to help control the connected car features, making it all a fantastic experience.
