Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform Will Allow Car Makers To Make Smartcars Very Soon

Through the Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform, Microsoft wants car manufacturers to deploy a host of sensors to capture data points and process all of the data on its Azure cloud backbone. So imagine a car in the not so distant future which will not only have Cortana voice-assistant built into it, but also able to read your mails, calendar and be able to auto calculate navigation route to your next meeting — without any external input of any kind. It will also, obviously, include some form of Office 365 apps, so read Word document, Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations — all inside your smartcar. Pretty cool, eh?
