According to the industry experts, in-car Wi-Fi has to boom with the automotive industry getting to grip with the popularity of various mobile devices. In fact, car manufacturers have been equipping the vehicles with cutting edge technology for a while now, with more and more microchips emerging in cars. The recent research suggests that the number of chips sold to the automotive industry will grow at a much faster pace than the rest of the industry, and the entire market will reach $28 billion in 3 years. Taking into account that Google lives out its sci-fi fantasies of the driverless cars, the ordinary car is expected to differ very much over the coming decades.
Besides, the researchers are predicting that the introduction of Wi-Fi will force the integration of tablets or smartphones with onboard systems, and it will become a norm in the next few years.
Thus far, not many manufacturers have been interested in-car Wi-Fi – for example, Audi has included Wi-Fi either as a feature or an optional extra. But the situation is changing rapidly – for instance, the experts forecast the eightfold increase of the market for in-car Wi-Fi over the next 7 years throughout America and Europe.
Although Bluetooth has been widely used by car manufacturers, it seems to fail to deliver the speeds possible with Wi-Fi, which can be able to fill in the gap and become a standard in the nearest future.
By equipping the cars with Wi-Fi, the manufacturers will allow drivers and passengers to share content from Internet enabled devices and create in-car hotspots. Those can be used to enable camera modules or wireless screen duplication. Maybe, there will be wireless car diagnostics or wireless software upgrade for the cars as well.
The researchers admit that Wi-Fi uptake will most likely be growing rapidly, especially with such advances as Wi-Fi Direct and Miracast. The report they issued after conducting a research says that the uptake of Wi-Fi in vehicles is going to be really aggressive. They also point at the promising Wi-Fi Alliance recent announcement about Wi-Fi Miracast. In the meantime, some industry players see this move being used in conjunction with MirrorLink for wireless screen duplication. In short words, the future for in-car Wi-Fi is more than promising.

|Great, they can upload their retag's while driving...awesome! this work for goat wagons too? I'm just thinking of the wallpaper uploaders...|

|I used to have this LOL. its called 3G/4G/evdo/sat radio LOL. its expensive and not worth the money for the speeds you get. but to get actual WiFi in your car would be even greater expense.|

|Great now there'll be more crashes as people watch you-tube whilst driving.|
Or your insurance premiums will go up as a result of the tracking of your vehicle.
Your sat nav will be able to get more accurate and up to the minute reports, once you've got rid of all the pop up adverts.
How about cookies? so not only can they know where you "surf" but also where you actually drive. Gotta be a marketting ploy there for someone ?
|Although it is inevitable that internet starts entering cars. You guys are failing to realize that wi-fi in this article is being used as a network. It is more like having everything connect to a common source (router) than establishing multiple separate connections through Bluetooth.|

|Better than trying to find wifi when away from home. I don't have internet cell phone, out of my price range last I checked. Or should I say more than I care to spend. Don't know how all the young-ins do it.|

|Not in those years predicted. All it is, is an expensive hotspot feature that nearly all modern cell phones have, which you would need anyways to get the connection to the Internet. Anyone who thinks the car will have wifi access to the outside world and it still work, is very stupid. Why pay for monthly service in a vehicle that you are already paying for through the phone in the pocket of a passenger? Perhaps they could make an antenna docking station so that cell phones in cars will get the best signal, thereby giving the wifi users inside the car the best speeds.|
For 802.11, the maximum power allowed without damage is 0dBm, and maximum power to operate is -20dBm. If you are sitting next to the Access Point with that much power, you will ruin your devices over time, or saturate your radios and get poor performance.

|If those car wipers spark, *I* will personally remind you Australia has no Capital Punishment. We don't deserve mock make ship dangerous backyard botch jobs. Grow up and aspire the to be the same. Everyone, call for redemption if they spark. It's delibrate evil.|
|will it enable you to use wifi with a laptop without the need of a mag mounted twig is the question and will it be better than a 1000 metre booster aerial since having a long twig mounted on your car is suspect at best,would save sitting within a few hundred metres of the local university which has open wifi to do downloads and not have to drink so many cups of coffee.|
|There is a spanking coffee shop across the road from the UNI, but am so tweaked sitting drinking coffee all the time I get a headache|
|Just to clarify, .....It will not be "just" a hotspot feature, or sharing connection in the car. #2 comment by Clamo|
has it very close though, 3G/4G...etc... is faster and more widespread than it used to be. As well as having devices
that are capable of picking up those signals and switching to different towers quicker than you average Cell Phone !!
Speeds on the the downside of 3mbps or more would be very possible even in rural areas, and 50mbps in city areas.
Whats scary ....is that you would be one big driving IP address !! Talk about keeping an eye on you ???? The
possibilities are endless, but I love the idea about Wireless diagnostics and data. If tied into the communications
buss of a vehicles ECU that would be great for Diag technicians such as myself.
Anyway, the rant is over. Just saying it will happen. Chaos will begin ! Crash
|technology is improving day by day|
|Here here darksideofthemoon, how can they ban mobile phone use and eating whilst driving and then introduce this tech. It would however be useful when the missus kicks me out of the house and I have to sleep in me car...||
