AUTONET
Wifi Cars Coming Up

Since most electronics devices use wifi, AutoNet Mobile will turn cars into wifi hotspots.

AutoNet optimized the technology to keep cars connected as they move, so any device in a vehicle will be Internet-enabled.

An early foreseen implementation of the idea -- which links cars together -- stems from former BT technologist Peter Cochrane as this 2003 quote demonstrates:

'Follow this with wifi-enabled cars and truck, and I think you can also see a new form of dynamic vehicle hopping network for non-real time data applications.'
