Cars are loaded with microprocessors. Microprocessors process data. They collect it, too. So, what if you take all the data from a car's "activity" stream and put it to use? And what if the car was constantly connected, too? Got a trip scheduled? Your car becomes aware and predicts you need to fill up. A heads-up display just above the dashboard tells you where to get gas at what price. A touchpad on the steering wheel lets you interact with the information systems, which could also extend to social engagements, such as sharing music with friends while they're on the road, too. In this screen, Intel simulates how a network of connected car cameras could record and report traffic conditions in real time.
