On March 10 in Austin, concurrent with SXSW Interactive, Oracle Social and Chevrolet teamed up to harvest ideas both from those in attendance at the Oracle Discovery Lounge and those in the Twitterverse on possible innovations around 4G connected cars, in-dash applications and overall automotive technology.
As event hosts Rahim Fazal of Oracle and Richard Choi of Chevrolet quickly discovered, followers of @oraclesocial and @Chevrolet are quite the brainstormers. Search #IdeaRally and you’ll get just a small idea of how the car experience is going to be significantly changing in the very near future.
What are your favorite possible applications? Parental controls that let you know if your kid is speeding? Reminders you need something from a store you’re driving near? Directions read by celebrity voices? Immediate alerts car maintenance is needed? Feel free to continue contributing your own ideas to the hashtag. Meanwhile, here’s a speedy infographic powered by Oracle Social’s Listen functionality with stats from the rally.
