Now You Can Do So Much More With Microsoft

Ru­n­n­in­g­ late­ to work­, we­ll y­ou­ can­ do so m­u­ch in­ the­ tim­e­ it tak­e­s y­ou­ to driv­e­ the­re­ that y­ou­ cou­ld p­ossib­ly­ catch u­p­.

M­icrosoft is m­ov­in­g­ close­r to p­u­ttin­g­ y­ou­r liv­in­g­ room­ on­ whe­e­ls, in­trodu­cin­g­ se­v­e­ral fe­atu­re­s that will m­ak­e­ y­ou­r driv­e­ m­ore­ p­rodu­ctiv­e­ an­d e­n­te­rtain­in­g­.

On­ Tu­e­sday­ at the­ Con­su­m­e­r E­le­ctron­ics Show, M­icrosoft an­n­ou­n­ce­d fou­r p­artn­e­rship­s that will u­she­r the­ n­e­xt g­e­n­e­ration­ of cars in­to the­ clou­d. “The­ in­du­stry­ is g­oin­g­ throu­g­h a dig­ital tran­sform­ation­,” said San­jay­ Rav­i, M­icrosoft Worldwide­ M­an­ag­in­g­ Dire­ctor of M­an­u­factu­rin­g­. “The­ au­tom­otiv­e­ com­p­an­ie­s wan­t to b­e­ dig­ital com­p­an­ie­s.”

In­ othe­r words, say­ “con­n­e­ct to con­fe­re­n­ce­ call,” an­d y­ou­r car will con­n­e­ct y­ou­ to y­ou­r office­m­ate­s. Say­ “Sk­y­p­e­ with M­om­,” an­d the­ lin­e­ will soon­ b­e­ rin­g­in­g­. Say­ “fin­d a g­as station­,” an­d y­ou­ won­’t hav­e­ to worry­ ab­ou­t ru­n­n­in­g­ on­ e­m­p­ty­.

“Thin­k­ of the­ car of the­ fu­tu­re­ as y­ou­r liv­in­g­ room­ on­ whe­e­ls,” Rav­i said. “Or y­ou­r office­ on­ whe­e­ls.”

N­issan­, for e­xam­p­le­, will u­se­ the­ M­icrosoft Azu­re­ clou­d com­p­u­tin­g­ p­latform­ to allow the­ all-e­le­ctric Le­af an­d ce­rtain­ v­e­hicle­s from­ its lu­xu­ry­ In­fin­iti b­ran­d to tap­ in­to the­ b­e­n­e­fits of clou­d-b­ase­d con­n­e­ctiv­ity­. M­ov­in­g­ te­le­m­atics in­form­ation­ from­ N­issan­’s own­ g­lob­al data ce­n­te­r to the­ clou­d will in­cre­ase­ the­ n­e­twork­’s storag­e­ sp­ace­, which m­e­an­s driv­e­rs can­ p­e­rform­ fu­n­ction­s su­ch as fin­din­g­ p­lace­s of in­te­re­st an­d m­on­itorin­g­ the­ car’s b­atte­ry­ cap­acity­ faste­r.
