Exploration into Java and Networking in the automobile
Owen Densmore
Sun Microsystems

The Sun Labs "skunkworks" has been exploring the use of computers and
networking in the automobile for 18 months.  This has included an
initial architecture, a JavaOne exposition:
and is maturing into a platform for individual research in several
areas including:
        - Navigation
        - Embedded Systems
        - PDA/Phone integration
        - Alternative Display technology
        - Entertainment
        - Service delivery
        - Industry New Market Development
Specific embedded computing devices we are currently using:
..as well as traditional servers for land based usage.

We have lots of great stories about the auto industry, our own naivete,
our experiences building a Java/Network car and associated computing
architecture, Linux, embedded systems, speech, Java APIs, and basically
about getting involved in a brave new world.
