Car PC
« on: June 07, 2010, 03:17:02 pm »
hi,

last week i bought a car and was looking for a "smart radio" and found www.centrafuse.com. Okay, this is not open source and it is not Linux, but it has some really cool features like optical park assistence or tire pressure messurement. So, my idea is: build in my car such a pc put a UMTS-Stick (in austria it is not really expensive) and synchronize the music from LMCE to the car. I also want to write a plugin/batchjob for centrafuse to send the GPS position of the car every 10 minutes to LMCE. That said, i want to have a smart House and a smart Car  ;) Has anyone other ideas for a combination of these two systems? Or does anyone know a piece of linux software with the functionality of centrafuse?

regards
avajon

One of Pluto's clients was Audi...the project was to put Pluto and the Orbiter technology in the car.

Part of my research work with MeeGo will be so that I can use hardware like this:
