According to IBM, the Volt is equipped with 100 electronic controllers, its very own IP address and roughly 10 million lines of software code. … that’s also more than today’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner which features a paltry 8 million lines of code.
And this is a good thing? How could all that code possibly be needed? The more code the more chance of bugs, not something you want in a car. Typically I’m more impressed with the least amount of code necessary for the functionality; it’s rare touting how many lines of code you wrote is impressive to engineers.
I also wonder if it’s IP address is Internet routable, I sure hope not. Maybe it’s behind a NAT firewall, but does that mean Volt’s can ping each other?
