Chip Shot: Intel and Ford Give Cars Super Vision

Remember when you thought Mom had eyes in the back of her head? Today, new Mobile Interior Imaging (Mobii) research will top Mom’s super powers to see what’s going on in your car even when you aren’t in it. The technology stems from a joint research project from Intel and Ford that uses the Internet of Things to transform the way we interact with cars. Project Mobii uses data from in and around the car to personalize vehicle settings, increase privacy and deliver individualized experiences for drivers and passengers. The Mobii research also features a mobile app that gives remote access to the car, along with the ability to authorize or decline other drivers and peek inside to check on belongings.
