Volkswagen's been hanging out with Google lately (well who wouldn't?) and they're trying to set up a match
between VW in-vehicle nav and Google satellite imagery. The two services would seem to be a perfect match, but they
need a little extra help from chipmaker/third-wheel Nvidia in order to handle the intense 3D imagery that results from
their courtship. The project is being spearheaded by Volkswagen's Palo Alto-based Electronics Research Laboratory, and
aims to provide drivers with Google Earth-like birds-eye views of upcoming terrain. Suits at VW say there are no
definite plans to commercialize this technology in production vehicles, but we bet that we'll be seeing some
uber-cutesy Googlers Wanted commercials sooner rather than later.
