    Rob Wray, from mp3Car, speaks with Mikael Soderberg, from Pelagicore, to discuss two new vehicle hardware setups.

    First, the ARM processor of the Beagleboard C4 is paired with a daughterboard from Pelagicore to enable easy communication with systems in the vehicle including the MOST, CAN, & LIN protocols. AM/FM radio integration, Bluetooth and power management capabilities are also integrated.

    Second, the Intel Atom 1.6GHz based system, utilizing multi-threading, easily communicates with the vehicles CAN and MOST 50 protocols. It has LVDS, USB, AM/FM radio, Bluetooth, and more.

    Both systems run on the Genivi software stack, based on Meego 1.1 IBI.

    Rob Wray, from mp3Car, takes a look at Carnegie Mellon University's "quality of life technology research center." A facial recognition technology is able to zoom in on your cursor depending on how far away your face is from the screen. Another device is able to use the sound of your finger to determine what motion your finger is making and this, in turn, dictates what the cursor on your screen does. Future applications could include combining this technology with a spacial recognition technology to give the user a very precise method of input control with no touch pad or mouse.

    Lilliput shows us what's new for 2011. A 7" SAW (surface acoustic wave) touch screen will be released in quarter one of 2011 and be very competitively priced. A new multi-touch monitor is also in the works. New battery operated monitors will provide use-case flexibility on some Lilliput models. Finally, embedded solutions for commercial applications are available. They run Windows CE and feature processors ranging from 400 MHz to 600 MHz.

    Lilliput SAW 659GL-70NP/C/T Touch Screen can be preordered now.
