I’ve recently changed my car to the 2016 Kia Sportage, the same model as that I saw back at CES 2016, from what I saw back then I knew it was going to be a big upgrade, to be honest its like a different car.
On to the point of my article. whilst the sales man was going through all the new features of the car, all I could think of was its just a sensor with a bit of logic just like we program into the mini-server, simple Lux sensor to determine whether to put the headlights on, a rain sensor to turn on the windscreen wipers.
Just one big electronic bus to manage the car, obviously its a little more complicated than that, but all the principles are the same. Working with smart home technology has reduced how impressed I am with some of the new features i’ve got on the car, but I still love it!
The other great feature on board is the 8″ touchscreen infotainment system, which has Carplay, now that is one cool system if you have an Iphone, but thats another review to come.
