Microsoft and Toyota partner on Azure car services

“Software giant Microsoft and car-maker Toyota have announced a new strategic partnership that will have the companies putting ¥1 billion (about $12 million) into a Toyota subsidiary to develop a telematics platform for Toyota plug-in hybrid and fully-electric vehicles. Telematics encompasses everything from digital entertainment to driving information like GPS and traffic updates to energy management and other data-driven services in a vehicle—and the whole thing will be powered by Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing platform.”

Driving electric car guided with GPS plus tones of intelligent system from the “cloud”, I think that might be something common in near future.
