Siri’s ‘Eyes Free’ Vehicle Assistance

At the annual developer’s conference today that several automobile manufacturers have signed on to integrate Siri’s ‘Eyes Free’ technology into their vehicles.  BMW, General Motors, Toyota, Mercedes-Benz, Honda, and Audi will be integrating a steering wheel button to activate an in car version of Apple’s mobile assistant Siri to aid drivers.

This button will be a great addition to the modern vehicle because everything can be accessed from one button and the voice can do the rest.  As many people may know in most cars nowadays it is necessary for the driver to manually enter the address into the GPS on a touch screen, or manually look up their favorite restaurants on the screen, but now it will be done as easily as asking Siri “Where is the nearest coffee shop?” or “Find directions to so and so address.”  This takes a huge step forward as far as the ease of use factor and it takes a huge leap forward in the safe operating of these technical features in modern vehicles.
