The average family car of today has significantly more computing power than got the first astronauts to the moon and back. Modern cars contain more and more computers to monitor and control every aspect of driving, from anti-lock brakes to engine management to satellite navigation.
This session will look at how Java can (and is) used in cars to add more data collection. This will cover a project that was written to collect a variety of data from a car whilst driving (including video) and then play it back later so driving style and performance could be evaluated. There will be plenty of demonstrations.
