Vehicle Ecosystem
Some vehicles are already a little advanced with advanced cameras in them ans well as GPS but with them having new things to offer just makes things more interesting to present to us for options and will be a plus for them in for businesses.

Re: Vehicle Ecosystem
The technology for cars today is nothing short of amazing. Bloomberg reports that Nissan is to showcase a car that can pick up on brain waves at this year's CES.  tecI tried putting the link in for that multiple times now, and each time it messes up the spacing on my comment and fails to show the video.

Re: Vehicle Ecosystem
@Ariella, it IS an amazing new world we are encountering!  The ability to truly apply AI and other technologies to safer vehicle operations and "connected" navigation offers an exciting future.  Safer AND opens the doors to mobility for many who are unable to have independent means of travel.

Thanks for sharing!

Telcos Can Drive Connected Vehicle Ecosystem
The forged partnerships that telcos have, including gas stations and parking garages, will definitely change the auto industry and make everything so much more efficient. Being connected to parking garages can really come in handy in a big city like New York.

Re: Vehicle Ecosystem
Picking up on brainwaves sounds interesting. Do you think that is to see if the driver is tired or otherwise impaired?

Re: Vehicle Ecosystem
My car is as dumb as it gets, and I wish I would have had some of this technology - at least a rear back up camera - when I accidentally backed into my sister-in-law's car. Having a smarter car could have saved me some hassle.

Re: Telcos Can Drive Connected Vehicle Ecosystem
A lot of this sounds like premium services, like getting your gas delivered to your car; but if people can pay for them then why not? I could definitely see where the parking garage thing would come in handy, I live in the 'burbs, but when I do have to go into the city finding a good parking garage gives me anxiety.

Re: Vehicle Ecosystem
@afwriter MIT came out with a summary article on it today: 

How it works: Bloomberg says the driver wears a headset covered in electrodes to capture an electroencephalograph, or EEG, of brain activity. From that data Nissan works out when a driver thinks about turning, accelerating, or braking and then has the car enact it 0.2 to 0.5 seconds sooner than a human.

But: Nissan tells the Verge that it's "aiming for practical application in 5 to 10 years." That means it's unlikely to appear on roads until autonomous cars do (see "2021 May Be the Year of the Fully Autonomous Car").

Why it still matters: When cars are autonomous, driving will remain a pleasure for many people; Nissan arguesthis could make those occasions safer. And when the car drives itself, brain signals could inform the car of passenger preferences, too.

Re: Telcos Can Drive Connected Vehicle Ecosystem
@afwriter smart parking apps are already available, I'm sure. The real trick would be a crowdsourced one that allows people to know where free -- not metered and not in parking garages -- are availabe in real time.

Re: Vehicle Ecosystem
That's pretty cool, when I read "headset" I was like Ohhh Nooo, but with their practical projection of 5 - 10 years I'm guessing that a headset will become something you could comfortably wear while driving by then.
