The firm said it is developing a telematics system for Fiat Auto based on a Microsoft-Fiat reference design that will include a chip set, processors, telecommunications module, speech engine, and hardware development. Firms partnering with Microsoft and Fiat on the system will include Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd, ScanSoft Inc., Siemens AG, SiRF Technology, Xilinx Inc., and Magneti Marelli Holding SpA.
Microsoft said the initiative will focus on four areas: new product development performance, operational performance, supply chain performance, and sales and customer service performance.
