Job listing shows Google gearing up to challenge iOS in the Car with "Projected Mode"
The job listing says that Daimler-Benz is seeking a software engineer to help the company with Google's upcoming in-dash system called "Google Projected Mode," which is apparently a way to "seamlessly integrate" an Android powered smartphone into the dashboard. Daimler says that the system will be "in all Mercedes-Benz vehicles in all markets worldwide." The ad also notes that messaging, calls, media playback and navigation would be handled through the car's control system.
Back in January, Google announced the Open Automotive Alliance to bring the Android platform to automobiles in 2014.
