UK.GOV: WE WANT BRITANNIA'S MOBE-ENABLED CARS TO RULE THE ROADS We need Britannia's mobe-empowered automobiles to rule the roads

The technology might be willing but the cellular signal is not too strong

Whatever Google and Apple could be doing with automobiles that are smart, last week great britain government wants Britain to be active in the business and so declared its support for the emerging sector in a seminar.

Yet the authorities - and moreover, the car industry - has an enormous amount to master before their common vision of the UK leading the automobile marketplace that is associated could be produced real.

KPMG's John Leech told El Reg the increase would come "mainly by better utilization of time in the car, raising productivity, labour market flexibility and much greater chance for commerce". He explained the research methodology followed the green novel, the approach the Department of Transport would utilize to quantify the advantages of driverless cars of the Treasury.

The report's writers looked at every one of the premises chosen from academic research and OEM studies and technology roadmaps. Their amounts allowed for the reality that occupations for example delivery drivers would vanish.

While the central processing units intended for automotive uses are largely exactly the same as those used in mobile phones along with other consumer electronics devices, they can be profiled otherwise, with more of an emphasis on security and dependability. Yet the car industry faces the challenge that while a lot of autos are manufactured, the volumes for even platform or every version are comparatively small in comparison to mobile phones.
