Abstract

Installing and managing computer hardware drivers can be challenging and time consuming. Drivers are currently difficult to locate and install and are often outdated. I propose an operating system independent hardware based interface for the automatic retrieval and installation of device drivers. Such an interface will allow the end user to reinstall/upgrade their operating system without having to worry about device drivers.
