What would I want to have for a future christmas present? A smartphone, or a car? Why not have both? Imagine a fully autonomous car such as Tesla’s model X, with the beauty and sleekness of a Porsche sportscar, and powered by, lo and behold, a tiny but powerful Kirin Chip. What a wonderful world it could truly be. Flying cars may be possible in the future, but current technologies point to the direction of electric smart cars. Today, infotainment systems with fully integrated android capabilites are becoming a standard in the latest vehicles. Elon Musk, Tesla’s visionary founder, has already realized the potentials to be explored in this current trend. We could say goodbye to fuel as the main energy source and say hello to solar powered cars paired with lithium-ion batteries. The integrated android systems in vehicles could communicate and be monitored from a central control office which would ease both ground and air traffic, and prevent accidents from occurring. While in the city, cars may be fully autonomous, but when in the countryside, you could have the option of driving manually to fulfill the thrill needs and without curtailing the freedom of old-fashioned driving. Like our android phones, cars could have built in storage systems for data collection, and an intuitive high resolution camera for road monitoring and safety precautions. A car with an expandable micro SD card doesn’t sound too silly to me. We could also have cloud based storage to transmit data to the central base. If there is a software malfunction in the vehicle, no problem. Just download a backup setting from the cloud storage and you are good to go. Summary: I chose this title and theme because there are truly a lot of opportunities and possibilities in an android powered car, even in the current technologies available today. Innovations in smartphone design and capabilities each year are amazing. Better wireless connections, Faster processors, HD camera resolutions, and creative designs. We could say the same thing for cars, better and more powerful engines, sense surround monitors, fuel and battery efficiency, audio and video capabilities, aerodynamic designs, etc. Why not make them into one? We could all be a witness to this in our lifetime, because the future is here, the future is now, the future is Huawei.
