NEC has been working with GM, LAPD and the Australian National Safety Agency to develop a next generation police vehicle. RoboCop it is not…but still very cool.
NEC has been a technology leader in automobile technologies for some time now. Projects include image recognition in vehicles and car 2 car communications. Now here’s the latest:
The solution is based on NEC’s Mobile Access Controller (MAC), an integrated voice and data communications platform.
The technology will also be available in domestic vehicles.
One of the key advantages of the solution is a large, purpose designed touch screen monitor which is embedded into the vehicle dashboard. The screen provides a consolidated user interface and solves key occupant safety issues by reducing equipment clutter.
In addition to the built in LCD display, NEC is providing the following as part of the vehicle package:
• High performance built in touch screen display
• MAC Applications Processor to provide rugged in-vehicle computing
• MAC IP Services Module to provide secure, reliable network connectivity
• MAC Intelligent Vehicle Controller to manage vehicle power and provide fleet management functionality.
