LTE Connected Car: Streaming video hits the road

This just in: The ng Connect program has announced that, for the first time, the LTE Connected Car will demonstrate streaming delivery of video games over a 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) network.

The demo will take place this week at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

According to the ng Connect press release, passengers in the LTE Connected Car will be able to browse a GameStreamer-powered store, purchase a game, and then play it — all from one of the car's infotainment systems.

If you've missed my previous posts on the LTE Connected Car, it is a joint creation of QNX Software Systems and Alcatel-Lucent that showcases how 4G/LTE networks will transform the driving experience and enable a host of new in-vehicle applications. The car contains four infotainment systems, all of which were created with the QNX CAR application platform.
