Microsoft og bilproducenten Volvo er sammen om at gøre nogle ret fantastiske ting inden for bilteknologi. Det nye partnerskab mellem softwareudbyderen og bilproducenten vil netto fremtidige chauffører en oplevelse, der går ud over en rullet op midtmonteret konsol.

The partnership starts with Volvo Cars’ recent announcement of enabling owners with Microsoft Band 2 wearables to navigate features of their cars. Perhaps only a relatively small niche of people will be prepared to take advantage of this collaboration; however, the partnership now enables owners to instruct their vehicle to perform a task such as starging navigation, setting thermostats, locking doors, and flashing lights all via voice dictation via the Microsoft Band 2. The magic sauce that connects the car to the Microsoft Band 2 is done through Volvo’s mobile app, Volvo on Call. The new app allows the car to sync functionality to approved wearable devices.

Microsoft Band 2 owners will be able to start speaking to their Volvo on Call-enabled vehicles as soon as Spring of 2016.

Thomas Müller, vicepræsident for elektronik / elektronik og e-fremdrift i Volvo Car Group sammen med andre inden for Volvo, søger at udvide biloplevelsen med teknologi, der innoverer uden for den traditionelle automobilsfære.

Vores igangværende partnerskab med Volvo fortsætter med at bringe banebrydende teknologi til at forbedre biloplevelsen, ”sagde Peggy Johnson, koncerndirektør for forretningsudvikling hos Microsoft. ”Sammen med Volvo er vi lige begyndt at forstå det potentiale, som teknologien har for at forbedre førersikkerheden og produktiviteten.”

Back in November of 2015, Microsoft and Volvo revealed another collaboration that could offer a significant shift in the automotive experience for many drivers. Microsoft and Volvo are seeking to implement HoloLens technology for the car. The details on the application of HoloLens for cars has yet to surface, but the idea of an untethered holographic experience in the car could potentially redefine how car interfaces are developed moving forward.

Tony Stark, a la Jarvis, heads-up display (HUD) -lignende oplevelse kan være inden for vores greb snart nok.
