Car electronic systems to benefit from IBM and Magna collaboration

Adalio Sanchez of IBM said that "Advanced vehicle electronics and software have become crucial to automakers and their ability to differentiate their products in an increasingly competitive marketplace," the evidence of this we’ve already seen with Mercedes’ new active safety technologies, as well as all the major manufacturers jumping to include iPod sockets for all their cars.

Hopefully with this collaboration we will see similar integration of technology into improving cars, not only safety wise, but also in terms of functionality and user-friendliness.
