Submission + - GM brings IT dev back in house - self driving Caddy in the works ( 1

dstates writes: Want a good job in IT? Detroit of all places may be the place to be. GM is bringing IT development back in house to speed innovation. Among other initiatives, a self driving Cadillac is planned by mid decade. Ford is also actively developing driver assist technology and is betting big on voice recognition. Ann Arbor has thousands of smart cars wirelessly connected on the road. Think about all those aging baby boomers with houses in the burbs and no desire to move as their vision and reflexes decline. The smart car is a huge market. Seriously, Detroit and SE Michigan have good jobs, great universities, cheap housing and easy access to great sports and outdoors activities.

  • Smart car of the future - think about a mobile phone with surround sound, heads up display, tactile feedback, climate control and access to a kilowatt of processor power.
