article quote: Another difference from past methods he said is that “quite a bit of the software and controllers in the vehicles are automatically generated from models. A lot of [the source code] gets generated from the tools and that greatly reduces the number of defects per lines of code.”

Interesting

Thanks for the post John

Just wait until they learn how to talk to each other and start complaining about their drivers.

Not really. The volt is basically a mobile computer, and is interfaced through a radio link aka OnStar. The systems are all being monitored every time you drive. Once the onstar subscription is done they won't be monitoring it live anymore, but they still need that connectivity when you return to the dealer, and they plug it in. The IP nuber of the car would be assigned by Onstar, no different that your ISP assigns your public IP when you connect your modem to their network, and your home router assigns private IP addresses to all your devices at home.

Just like our modern airliners. When the computers determine that a part has failed, the replacement is on the way before the bird lands at its next stop....

Exactly... and you thought the the R2D2 looking thing next to the charge indicator was a light sensor. Actually... it is monitoring your eyeballs!
