Microsoft working on WiFi tech for cars

Posted on Sunday, August 31 2008 @ 03:51:18 CEST by

DailyTech reports Microsoft and University of Massachusetts researchers are working on a Vi-Fi (Vehicle WiFi) system to create a cheap mobile Internet.
The idea of a mobile internet connection in your car is an attractive one. With the majority of Americans hooked to the internet, the idea of the extra web time is highly appealing. While it might dangerously tempting to driver, the concept has many safe applications. From passengers enjoying surfing the net or VoIP to internet streamed television or radio, there's a world of opportunity. Even the drivers could benefit from something new to do while waiting in the parking lot at their local grocery store.

To help achieve this vision, an alliance between the University of Massachusetts, Microsoft and the University of Washington have cooked up a new technology they're call Vi-Fi (Vehicle Wi-Fi). The system aims to provide users with on-the-go internet access more cheaply than existing cellular broadband systems. And it uses some advanced technology to do it.
