CES 2011: GM And OnStar Display Prototype System With Verizon 4G, Skype, Video Monitors0
Ever walk out of the grocery store to your car in the parking lot only to find your car’s bumper dented and marred — with no sign as to who is responsible for making your day miserable? Well, if your car was equipped with discreet monitors around its exterior which can relay the footage to your phone or computer thanks to Verizon’s spanking new 4G LTE Network — you would probably catch a glimpse of the oblivious twit that smacked into your ride. But that’s not all…
Going along with vehicle monitoring, the 4G LTE system can also be used to connect with home security cameras, lights and thermostats and send information back to the driver.
Other features displayed include Skype, a voice activated control system that allows you to search the internet, and even a traffic view that displays real-time traffic images. Though there is no word on just when and if this technology will be available to the everyday consumer, it sure puts the capabilities of automobile technology to a new dimension.
