The advancement of voice recognition technology has made leaps and bounds in recent years, making its integration into Ford products that much more streamlined and effortless. The next five years are already predicted by experts to usher in the optimization of voice recognition, which will serve to refine one's driving experience in a multi-dimensional fashion.
Adding to the anticipated fun is Apple CarPlay™, which will make voice recognition and customization even more optimized across devices. Apple's technology will simplify the process to use a car's touch screen as an iPhone interface, allowing access to Siri Eyes-Free voice controls and Apple's suite of applications.
But preliminary research and reports suggest that within two years' time, voice control systems may be able to preempt a driver's needs - both vehicle and non-vehicle related - and pose questions such as "Would you like to place an order to-go at your favorite fast food restaurant?" Other recognition features are slated to be less invasive and more intuitive.
The future of connectivity and mobility offers plenty to ponder. Stay tuned to learn more, or simply stop by Sound Ford in Seattle, Washington today.
