Apple unveiled CarPlay back in 2014. Earlier this year, Google announced Android Auto. Though Microsoft originally announced plans for a vehicle OS back in 2014, the company recently unveiled new plans to get into the car electronics market.

In addition to the voice control aspect of Cortana, Microsoft is integrating small projectors into the vehicles to project messages and maps on to the windshield. It’s like having Google Glass in your car. Rumor has it, Microsoft may have plans to leverage this technology for vehicle autonomy.
