The Intel Telematics Design Centre will be unveiled on 27 September at the VDI Kongress Conference in Germany. The centre will help developers build products and services for delivering voice and data to vehicles and within vehicles.
This field of technology, known as telematics, covers categories including driver safety and security, voice-activated communications and location-based services, Intel said. Intel's design centre will provide developers with tools, information and designs in order to accelerate development of telematics products and applications on its StrongARM and XScale processors.
The Telematics Design Centre is part of the Personal Internet Client Architecture (PCA) Developer Network that the company launched in August. The network offers tools and support for developers and designers of mobile phones, PDAs and other mobile devices using Intel's embedded processors.
