My software guys are pretty up to date on electronics now in use by the automakers.<quoted text>
I am also involved in the field of industrial automation; what iluvmyvolt passes off as marvelous and amazing engineering that is presented on the Voltís video screen is pretty mundane stuff. Automobiles have been equiped with OBD and ECMs for decades; they can provide an ďamazingĒ amount of information.
This includes GM, Ford, Chrysler, Honda, Toyota,(all customers of ours).
They find that much of what is found in today's vehicles is fairly primitive stuff.
Like you say, there isn't much breakthrough revolutionary stuff out there yet.
Those who try to convince us otherwise are just posting fluff.
