it in automobiles
IT in Automobiles
  • Electronic Systems that control various functions – brakes, fuel injection etc.
  • Auxiliary Services based on Wireless IT – navigation aids, for e.g..
say what
Say What ?!?
  • 1990 – “the average new car carried more on board computing tools than the vehicle that took Armstrong et al to the moon and back.”
electronic systems
Electronic Systems
  • Back in the 70’s, vehicle emission systems were crude and mechanical.
  • By the 90’s, engine management computers take over.
electronic safety standards
Electronic Safety Standards
  • Airbags – can be traced back to the 60’s but only became viable with electronic controls.
  • ABS, Traction control and Stability control are other examples.
auxiliary services
Auxiliary Services
  • In the 1930’s, radios in cars or telephones in cars were unheard of.
  • Early Satellite Navigation Systems – not user friendly. ( the Hyundai example )
  • Pioneer’s voice recognition idea in 1996 -market reaction was non-existent.
