Intel and Nissan have revealed an in-car infotainment system that will bring an interesting array of features to some Infiniti vehicles.
The system was revealed at the New York Auto Show and showcased within Nissan’s concept car, the Infiniti LE.
It will sport an Intel ATOM CPU and bring multitasking to the car: for example, the driver could receive traffic or navigation information, while feeding a movie to the passengers at the same time.
Other interesting features include the ability to control some aspects of the vehicle with a smartphone; for example, an NFC-enabled phone could let you into the car without a key.
Another example is the car sending a notification to the owner’s smartphone after another car bumps into it in a parking lot.
We can expect to see these features in high-end Infiniti vehicles, beginning in 2013.
