UMPC Goes Auto
Intel says its Ultra Mobile PC is designed to give users full PC capability in places where a laptop is too big or clunky. How about in a car? A project with Volkswagen looks fairly promising. It would provide three users with access to three screens installed in the front dash, and on the backs of the front seats. The system is still in concept mode. One tip: don’t tell an engineer his car is “pimped out.” Jason Lopez talks with Dan Monihan, from Intel’s Ultra Mobile Group; Parag Jain, – senior project engineer for the connectivity and computing electronic research laboratory at Volkswagen of America; and Damien Stolarz – chief technology officer of MP3Car.com, the developer of the StreetDeck car PC software.
