Apple Siri is coming to a car near you.
At this week’s World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) it was revealed that automakers including BMW, Audi, Chrysler, Honda, General Motors, Jaguar, Land Rover and Toyota plan to integrate Siri into their vehicles in what they’ve termed the ‘Eyes Free’ system. Very few details were provided, however.
Wired.com did note that a single slide of a BMW dashboard with an iPhone mounted on it was shown at the conference and stated that “it is assumed that existing voice buttons – normally found on the steering wheel – would be able to call up the iPhones virtual assistant.”
Siri is already making an impact on the automotive sector with Mercedes planning to intergrate it into its new A-Class, due to be released in Europe later this year.
