Honda to start installing Android on on-board computers in cars starting next year

Published

on

Honda Motor has partnered with Google to begin installing Android on the on-board computers of major car models sold around the world next year. Users will be able to navigate, play music records, voice control and other features – all without using a smartphone.

Google’s Android Automotive system, introduced in 2015, has the same basic design as the Android operating system for smartphones. Volvo Cars tried it first (the illustration shows a Volvo car), followed by other automakers, including General Motors. Nissan Motor was the first among Japanese companies. Honda will be second.

Honda has a history of using Android Auto, a technology that makes it easier to use Android smartphones in cars. But Android Auto relies on a smartphone for navigation and other features. In the case of Android Automotive, a smartphone is not needed. Google Voice Control can be used to control air conditioning and other functions that are not directly related to driving and are therefore safe.

The operating system will also be installed on electric vehicles. It will allow you to find compatible charging stations, get directions to them and optimize the temperature of the battery when you arrive to charge, to reduce the time required for charging.

Apple has already migrated almost all of its PCs to its own single-chip systems, but it remains an open question what the company will be able to offer for the new Mac Pro. The new data says it will be SoC M2 Extreme.

The Macwolrd resource does not have any fresh data on this, but our colleagues decided to guess what the new platform might turn out to be, based on how Apple created the M1 line of solutions.

In particular, since the M2 has eight CPU cores, ten GPU cores, and 24GB of memory, the M2 Pro can get 10 CPU cores, 20 GPU cores, and 48GB of memory.

M2 Max in this case will offer the same CPU, but already 40 GPU cores and 96 GB of memory.

The M2 Ultra will have 24 CPU cores, 80 GPU cores, and 192GB of memory, while the M2 Extreme in Max Pro will have an incredible 48 CPU cores, 160 GPU cores, and 384GB of universal memory. What size such a platform will have and what performance it will provide is hard to even imagine.

True, there have already been rumors that the Mac Pro will receive a platform with a 40-core processor and a GPU with up to 128 cores, although this is impressive.

Black and White LCD Wi Fi and 249 Mechanical Keyboard Pre Order

Modern PCs and smartphones have long become universal devices that allow a lot. But AstroHous seems to think that dedicated systems are better. The developers have introduced a portable device called Freewrite Alpha, which is designed for writers. This is a kind of modern “reissue” of electric typewriters and word processors.

The novelty is equipped with a monochrome LCD display measuring 6.5 by 1 inch, which is enough to display from 2 to 6 lines of text at a time, depending on the font size. Alpha also has a full-size mechanical keyboard on Kailh Choc V2 switches, a USB-C port for charging a 4200 mAh battery, an 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi adapter, and some modern features, including basic text editing, cloud sync and autosave.

Note that Freewrite also has more advanced models with E ink screens, but the price is higher. The Alpha is available for pre-order for $249 and will retail for $349 in Summer 2023.

The main advantage of the device can be considered its instantaneous activation, which is sometimes important for writers. There’s also support for Freewrit mail and third-party services, including Dropbox, Google Drive, and Evernote.

The design of the Freewrite Alpha is inspired by classic devices from the 1980s and 1990s such as the AlphaSmart, Cambridge Z88, and TRS-80 Model 100. AstroHous plans to only sell English layout versions at this time, but other language options may be added if there is demand. .
