Upcoming Cars Technology: A Future Preview
As a driver, have you ever wondered how to make it more easier, more fun and more comfortable for you to drive your own car that you could almost feel that you're inside your house or your office? Well, I have good news for you people.
Some tech companies are in talks with some car makers for collaboration on productivity and entertainment enhancements for cars in the future.
At the recently concluded Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona, Samsung has announced that they are in collaboration with Toyota to create the Samsung Car Mode Application. The app is said to integrate Samsung's mobile communication tech with Toyota's In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) for connectivity, multimedia capabilities and internet services.
Meanwhile, Mercedes Benz has also announced that they're looking to integrate Apple's Siri into its A-class electronics system called Drive Kit Plus. It will basically let the driver access iPhone apps while driving through voice commands.
Another company, Research In Motion (RIM), have announced that it's going to integrate their Blackberry QNX technology into Porsche.
In summary, we're going to see next-generation GPS, games, videos, photos and web surfing, as well as using only voice commands to change channels on the radio, send texts, make calls, listen to music and create reminders right in the comfort of our own car.
There you have it, folks. Welcome to the future of car technology. Enjoy!
