Task Autobahn Lets Your Car Create Songs Inspired By Kraftwerk

Hacker/inventor Tom Zimmerman created Task: Autobahn , a generative music system that creates music based on a good automobile’s control sensors.

Zimmerman participated in the Boing Boing Ingenuity: Data Driven crack day on August 17, 2013. His creation, Project: Autobahn, has been awarded their “Weirdest Hack” reward.

Project: Autobahn utilizes OpenXC data as MIDI information to compose and play Kraftwerkian music that matches the driver’s behavior. As Zimmerman says in the video, the style of music the car generates could be used to provide comments to the driver.
