The Future Gets Closer To An Intelligent Car: Or Is It Just A Passing Cloud?

The Future Gets Closer To An Intelligent Car: Or Is It Just A Passing Cloud?

Though Internet technology inside vehicles has come up pretty recently, 2008 or so, the look of things is changing rapidly in the auto industry in that vein. Cloud computing is quickly becoming a part of automobile blueprints in major assembly plants. One of the oldest makers of automobiles in the United States that began its operations after the first Model-T discovery in 1910 has already signaled a future of an intelligent car.

The vehicle will not only have the usual applications that are becoming commonplace like GPS monitoring systems, but may have psychic technology that can deduce what the owner is feeling. According to this particular auto manufacturer, plans are underway to bring about a car that will even sense when one is under the flu and needs to get to hospital. It will turn the automatic on and veer to the nearest healthcare facility by aid of stored direction memory or Google Maps. Of course this is a little overboard for no such vehicle exists as yet, but the assembly plant in question is already showing these marvels in its cloud computing center in three-dimensional video productions.

Whether the intelligent cars come to pass is not what is important but how the contemporary technology can help to achieve this goal. Already there are a few leaps for mankind that the auto industry, in partnership with cloud computing experts, has made.

These include:

1. Automating the atmospheric conditions inside a vehicle whereby the machine will be setting an interior temperature as soon as it senses the owner is approaching.
2. Use of voice commands that the system will decode and help to operate the vehicle, hands-free.
3. Storing of anything important to the car owner like traffic information, licensing resources, music and movies far away in a server to save space.

All the above trends have, in one way or another, helped to demystify the cloud and make it become a household terminology. In fact, the advent of voice commands that vehicles will decode to shift to the left or right lanes may even turn the automotives into cell phones with mobility. Just like it is robbing the desktop computer its virtual right as home to the cloud, the automobile may soon be denying the Smartphone its reign as a handheld device.

The fact that data will now be available offshore for the driver to access, whether it is family or professional, also points out to a future of intelligent interactions. The vehicle may even come to sense that the driver is in the middle of business when driving and park by the side of the road of itself. If the three hundred and sixty degrees screening media that the auto makers with an interest in the cloud are using to demonstrate how they want to transform the industry is anything to go by, then car owners should brace themselves for a virtual future.

Though adjusting temperature in the interior may be an act of presetting something just like an alarm, every discerning person has to acknowledge that it has some element of artificial intelligence in it. The fact that the vehicle senses that the driver is about to disembark may be a sign that technology has advanced to more than just manual adjustment of memory settings. It is quite a zany idea to think that one’s beloved car is waiting impatiently for the master to come and drive it away.

As a matter of fact, the sketchy details surrounding ‘impossible’ fetes in the car industry are not just a passing cloud. Cloud computing has already prepared the ground through visible applications that are turning vehicles into moving computers and phones. The only thing they cannot be, and quite convenient at that, is become servers.
