How to install a GPS-equipped camera in your car to capture the weather
A pair of smart GPS-powered cameras could soon be rolling out in cars in the U.S., as automakers push to integrate them with their vehicles.
As the cost of smartphones and smart cars continues to plummet, automakers have long sought to develop smart sensors into their vehicles to track the weather.
GPS-enabled cameras have the potential to be used in that effort, though they’re limited by the lack of sensors on the road.
But the ability to capture a wide array of weather information has come at a price: The sensors are expensive.
Now, automakers are working to upgrade their existing smart cameras to the latest generation of sensors that can be used with their vehicle’s internal cameras.
The idea is to make the cameras smarter.
In other words, to allow for more detailed, up-to-date weather data that can allow the car to identify its surroundings and to alert the driver to approaching dangers.
The first smart sensors, which are set to roll out later this year, will be mounted on the windshield and roof of cars.
The idea is that the cameras can be controlled remotely to take pictures that can then be used to determine the distance from the car, how much sunlight is in the area and where the road is.
The camera will be able to take a series of pictures in a sequence to determine how far away the car is.
The car could also use the camera to record weather information to help the driver get a better idea of the distance to a particular location.
For example, if the car’s dashboard is cloudy, it could tell the driver about the visibility at that particular location, and then the driver could adjust their speed or the way they drive to that location.
The new sensors also could be used for monitoring the climate, which is a critical component of auto safety.
For the next few years, automakers will likely be relying on climate data to make their decisions about safety.
But the new sensors could also be used by automakers to collect data on drivers.
The sensors could record information such as vehicle speed and direction, which could then be fed into algorithms that determine the driver’s ability to navigate through a particular road.
As automakers try to figure out how to integrate the sensors into the cars, they’re also working on how to improve the quality of the data they receive from the cameras.
They’re also experimenting with ways to capture weather data remotely.
For instance, a recent study by the U-M Transportation Research Institute found that using remote-control cameras to record temperature and precipitation information from a driver’s dash could improve the accuracy of forecasts and make them more reliable.
The sensors will not be cheap.
But they’re expected to be inexpensive enough to be affordable to most people.
The cost of a single sensor could be as low as $50.
It could also include a small battery, so drivers will likely not have to plug in to recharge their camera when it’s not in use.
The companies that are developing the sensors say they hope to eventually roll them out across all models of cars in 2021.
