    Awesome!

    Please bring it over to the UK for a gawk.

    Q: Is there anyway that we can log in to the car and check out what it's cameras and sensors are seeing?

    This is really cool. Now Microsoft just need to make sure they update Bing Maps. It is embarrassing that when in Dublin, I search for O'Connel Street in my WP7 and I am taken to somewhere in Nebraska. Had to install a gMap app to be able to get around here. Tsk, tsk  Perplexed

    That's funny. When I do a Bing Maps search on "O'Connel [sic] Street", I get taken right to Dublin. "O'Connell Street" also takes me to Dublin. I when I do a search on "O'Connell Street Nebraska", I get taken to "NE Oconnell Rd, Cameron, MO". Maybe you're on a different version of Bing Maps than everybody else because there doesn't seem to be any "O'Connel Street" or "O'Connell Street" in the state of Nebraska on the version of Bing Maps that I'm using.

    Too bad they had to use a wireless card for 4G because wp7 doesn't support 4G, and it doesn't support being a hot spot.

    Too bad it's Microshaft instead of Apple.

    Well an idevice would crash without letting you know. And the phone wouldn't be as pretty. Be prepared to be overtaken by this ☺

    And for the misinformed: Windows Phone allready supports 4G.

    Way to go Microsoft. With Windows Phone and Windows 8 Metro on a tablet Microsoft shows competition the giant is awake!

    WP7 supports 4G (yes, LTE) and hot spots. Irwin thinks he's smart... fail.

    Yea, if it was apple you would be forced to do exactly what they want you to do.

    Plus they will track you whereever you go.

    Man, apple sounds soooo much better than microsoft.

    If you travel 2 years into the future this will be made by Apple, who will then start lawsuits against everyone associated with this project for stealing Apple's design. That and it won't work if your holding it wrong.

    Why did you pick a classic car? It looks ugly and stupid to see a muscle car like that one with neons. lol.... This is also something most people can't do. It would cost thousands to rig a car like that. Show the average folks what can be done within an average budget and stop spending money on bad design.

    Do you plan to release the hardware as an open source? The code for Head up display is pretty useless without a proper hardware Smiley

    how can i get more details on the project, are there any sits that show more pictures on how you put the two cars together?

    Interesting. Especially as my job is designing aftermarket diagnostic equipment for diagnostics & transponder key coding.

    For the phone to switch the car on automatically the car's electronics have been heavily modified (immobiliser ripped out). Making it a MS show point but not much more -being a specific project the hardware as open source woud'nt therefore make much point. Ie. Vehicle manufacturer's each have there own way of doing things!!!

    Interesting OBD dash pannel project -thats something people can play with esp. just buying an off-the-self OBD tool.

    Well done anyway :)

    so if the car doesn't start correctly, do you just reboot it?

  • User profile image

    Bingo ! I am working on a similar project. May be recognized as a sibling of what are you guys working on right now. Well, I have got Nissan Altima for development purposes and using Kintect and the latest MRDS I want to make the car autonomous. But the main hurdle in my way is, I have no idea about how I'd Actually Command the car. And so if you have any clues on that, please help !

    So when one or more of these devices blue screens, do you have to pull over? How do you drive when you need to reboot every MS device?
