The ‘Projected Mode’ in-car system by Google possibly leaked by Mercedes Benz

Job advertisements aren’t a reliable way to be looking for tech and neither can they be trusted; well at least not always. But there have always been exceptions and sometimes some extraordinary one catches the attention. This time an advert has particularly caught our attention and it is the one form Daimler which is the parent company of Mercedes-Benz. They are currently looking for a software engineer who can apparently work on the implementation of Google's forthcoming in-car system, the "Google Projected Mode".

This new car system is there to integrate the Android smartphones into a dashboard's head unit which is going to pack inside a bigger display which will output the most simplified version of the Android User Interface. But all of this is based on the likelihood that the word ‘projected’ doesn’t imply a future possibility.

The advert will obviously not throw away many details and it doesn’t mention how the phone’s connection will be made to the dashboard and we have got no clue whether such a setting would be wireless, cabled or a bit of both. But the mentioning of some things is helping here for instance the media playback, messaging, calls and navigation all being handled "safely" through the vehicle's control system. And this makes it clear enough that this can be a substitute for Apple’s iOS in the car.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
