Windows 7: Microsoft shows off next-gen Windows for connected cars

Microsoft shows off next-gen Windows for connected cars

Microsoft is moving Windows to the car, again.

Microsoft has been in the automotive space for a very very long time—probably more than 15 years, according to Steve Teixeira, who works in the developer division at Microsoft. A good chunk of cars on the road run either Windows CE or Windows Automotive, including BMW, Fiat, Ford, Kia, and Nissan.

Now, Microsoft is prepping yet another version, Teixeira revealed at last week’s Build event. The company has already tested its new version of Windows for the car, both in simulators that model eye-tracking, as well as in actual cars in a local Seattle raceway. “More of a concept, but a concept that we can work very very seriously on so that we can bring the world the IVI (in-vehicle infotainment) and a broadened Windows device together,” Teixeira said.

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there

I think some sort of Embedded Windows is also being used for some of the Driverless Cars being tested in Europe and California at the moment.

I rather like the concept of Driverless Cars -- this could finally bring REAL PUBLIC transportation to the masses in a much more comfortable way than typical Urban Mass transit systems. These would also be good at night etc where you could relax in the back seat while "being driven home2.

(I quite like though Long distance Rail travel where you can get pampered with nice Bar and food service etc. Short distance mass transit "commute" type distances though are usually a nightmare wherever you are).
