Una idea muy ambiciosa se asoma al mundo de los autos, una idea asombrosa, que tal si fantasticos autos tuviesen el sistema operativo Linux?, bueno esa idea va cobrando vida poco a poco de la mano de Jesus Sanchez y su Team. Este proyecto se llama SAAB 91, es un auto con sistema operativo linux similar a los que usan los aviones, va a incluir sistema GPS, aplicaciones con interfaces amigables al usuario tipo, sistema de autonavegacion y muchas otras cosas mas. Jesus me ha encargado el trabajo de reclutar gente que sepa programar en los lenguajes basicos de linux o que solo quiera difundir la idea, necesitamos el apoyo- aporte de universidades que se quieran unir a este proyecto. Bueno sin mas que decirles les dejo un video del auto que va a llevar el sistema operativo.

AQUI LES DEJO EL AUTITO QUE VA A LLEVAR GNU-LINUX

Este es el manifiesto del grupo


This group born with the idea to aim and convince SAAB Automobile to develop a new model, the SAAB 91 with the objective of increasing sales and customers.

THE NAME 91: Is an homage to the SAAB 91 Safir, a little plane developed by SAAB in the Netherlands and Sweden. This name is a hidden reminiscence to Spyker (Netherlands) and SAAB (Sweden). The name respond exclusively to historical reasons in the actual context and also to the first car with real aeronautical systems (The SAAB 91).

** MAIN PROJECT MILESTONES **

FIRST CAR OF THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY WITH REAL AERONAUTICAL INSTRUMENTS
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- First car of the automotive industry designed by real pilots. The car feel and taste aeronautical, it has an EICAS, PFD and ND as main instruments. The car can switch betwen 2 modes (car - or - airiliner) to make redefine the driving experience.

- First car of the automotive industry to provide OLED flexible and transparent TV screen attached to the driver's glass, to simulate an unique driving experience.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FIRST CAR OF THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY CONTROLLED BY A COMPUTER WITH AN OPERATING SYSTEM (SAAB LINUX)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- All the functions of the car are controlled by an operating system (SAAB LINUX) and a computer mother board integrated inside the car, that will be able to control every sigle aspect of the car. Our Linux team is working in this operating system. It will have two versions: MACHINE VERSION (with an ultralight kernel as similar as possible to UNIX to control the car's functions) and DESKTOP VERSION an evoluted version of Ubuntu Linux adapted specially for SAAB CARS and also for desktop computers.

-The operating system can run applications in real time. It would be possible to synchronize your blackberry or cell phone with the applications runing inside the car, you will be able to run applications as OpenOfice in real time.

- All the internal functions of the car, will be controlled by the operating system, this will allow to the mainteinance technicians save time and money accomplishing modifications in your car. For example, you can increase the Horse Power of your SAAB 91, just running a computer program that modify the enine paramenters. All the statistics of the usage of the vehicle will be stored in your key (in a MicroSD card or transferred to your cell phone in real time via Bluetooth of WIFI).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FIRST CAR OF THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY ABLE TO RUN COMPUTER PROGRAMS.

FIRST CAR OF THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY THAT STUDY A NEW FINANTIAL SYSTEM IN WHICH THE CONSUMER PAY LESS MONEY TO GET A BETTER AND MORE EXPENSIVE CAR
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- First car of the automotive industry to provide an innovative financial system. We use for first time the business model of the computer's industry (Firefox, Ubuntu, etc.) to apply them to the SAAB 91 initiative. SAAB 91 will provide additional money to the maker (SAAB) using online services, as yahoo or google. That will allow the maker (SAAB) earn money with a well stablished fleet of cars, that will eventually pay the future cars. In other words, we pretend to create a "cash flow" in which the maker earn money thru other vias, allowing the future cars be cheaper. The actual fleet of cars pay the future cars. This will be translated to interesting discounts to the customers.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FIRST CAR OF THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY ABLE TO RECOGNIZE THE ROAD USING INTEL OPENCV TECHNOLOGIES
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- First car of the automotive industry using INTEL OPENCV technology. With this technology from Intel and the on board computer (of the size of a laptop and placed in the car's trunk) the car will be able to recognize the road lanes and drive alone in certain conditions, will be able to recognize pedestrians, objects, and traffic signals.

The Support Group for the creation of a new SAAB model, the SAAB 91 pretend to expand the brand market into the successful segment of the Mini, Fiat 500 and Audi A1.

The goals of this group is to bet for a new SAAB model the 91.

The SAAB 91 would be a car in a range price starting from 12.000 to 19.000 euros (16.000 to 26000 dollars)

- Directed mainly to a market of new potential customers
- Expand the SAAB brand to unprecedented levels
- Duplicate the sales
- Develop the SAAB culture in young people
- Attract new customers
- Designed from and for you!

The idea of this group is the SAAB 91 be a car constructed with your concerns, ideas and suggestions. A point of reference, to let SAAB know what you would like to have in a car of this segment and characteristics.

The group is made by SAAB enthusiasts and fans.
