Intel has popped up again with more co-branding partnerships, this time you’ll find them in your dashboard. Nissan and Intel have paired up to create the next iteration of in-vehicle infotainment in the 2013 Infinity line-up. Unveiled today at the New York International Auto Show, the system uses cloud-based services for smartphone users such as video surveillance, vehicle control, and monitoring. Users will be able to use their phone’s NFC capabilities for keyless entry into the carriage. All of this is powered by Intel’s Atom CPU, which bucks the general trend toward ARM architecture in these systems.
"The twin-display, developed with Intel technology inside, is a breakthrough feature that presents driving-related information in the right place and at the right time." – Andy Palmer, Executive VicePresident, NISSAN Motor Company
