Paul’s Internet Connected Volvo Review at AFK Fest 2010
Rob Wray, from mp3Car, takes a closer look at forum member PaulF’s Volvo S60. He vehicle was one of the most ‘teched out’ at this year’s AFKFest 2010.
One of the main features of his car is the SheevaPlug, which runs 24/7 on an optima battery next to his standard carputer. The SheevaPlug acts as a webserver with a custom Centrafuse app that interacts with it. From the internet, he can turn his lights on, roll up or down his windows, start up his standard computer, and even hit play on his favorite song before he reaches the vehicle. He can even text message his vehicle to do many of these same actions.
