Mercedes Benz Integrates Siri Into Their Cars



Imagine it, Siri in your car, would it be cool or drive you crazy! Whatever your opinion on this, it would seem that being able to change their diary, send SMS & email, check out news & weather and of course choose their favourite music all without touching a single button using the Siri voice control system.


It seems that this and other systems could be the real future for drivers who are able to control various actions within the car without having to use their hands.



According to the Mercedes Benz Press Release here are some of the details on the Drive Kit Plus and Digital DriveStyle App;


Thanks to a new “Digital DriveStyle App”, developed in-house, together with the “Drive Kit Plus for the Apple® iPhone®”, drivers can now access all the key content of their Apple® iPhone® through the in-vehicle display and enjoy safe and convenient operation of the device via the Controller on the center armrest. The attractive ‘look’ is ensured by the revolutionary user interface design. In a further world premiere, Mercedes-Benz will enable access to the voice-based intelligent companion Siri™ in the vehicle.


Look out for further details towards the end of the month from Mercedes Benz.
