Now Wi-Fi (Vi-Fi) in Vehicles

This is a Wi-Fi age. Those who need can find Wi-Fi hotspots everywhere; in home, hotels, airport lounges and in the airplanes. Next thing on the offer is Wi-Fi in the cars.

Microsoft’s is going to offer Wi-Fi technology in the vehicle. They call it Vi-Fi – vehicle Wi-Fi and it is a Wi-Fi connection in vehicles. With the partnership of the University of Washington and the University of Massachusetts, Microsoft is working on a reliable and steady connection in the vehicles. This new system will allow multiple Wi-Fi signals to come in and out at any given time in order for the signal to remain strong and steer clear of “hand-offs”, which are known to fumble and lead to spotty service.

Who needs to surf behind the wheel? Well, Wi-Fi- would be a good addition to technology in cars because it would replace satellite subscription services that are expensive, and it would allow users to have an unlimited amount of applications. With Wi-Fi in cars, the weather and movie times could be displayed, as well as Internet radio, live stock quotes, instant messaging, and pretty much anything else you could access on a laptop.

For this to be an option for the everyday driver, there will need to be a larger infrastructure for Wi-Fi, but Microsoft has proven they can produce terrific technology in cars with the Sync system. Just beware, with a road full of drivers surfing the Internet, you might need to be careful.
