Microsoft announces availability of Windows Embedded Automotive 7

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 21, 2010

Microsoft had recently announced that select automakers may now buy their own copy of the Windows Embedded Automotive 7. This platform is intended to support the development of new infotainment systems.

Its major features include speech commands, touch input, hands-free Bluetooth phone communications, advanced dashboard systems for access to music, maps, third-party apps and navigation.

Furthermore, Microsoft disclosed that the 2011 Nissan LEAF touchscreen information hub is equipped with the Windows Embedded Automotive technology, which offers a navigation system and electricity charging station locator.

Drivers also get to share power consumption monitoring information with drivers, and this leads to easy in-car climate monitoring.

Kevin Dallas, general manager of the Windows Embedded Business Unit at Microsoft, said that Dallas said that Microsoft “deeply understands that technology collaboration is paramount to the evolution of integrated, in-vehicle infotainment systems.”

He added that the company expects to create new opportunities with Windows Embedded Automotive 7 which is working with ecosystem of partners to ship the best in entertainment and productivity solutions to drivers and passengers worldwide.
