Another Email/Phone gadget for your car
Telematics and automotive safety device manufacturer Intelligent Mechatronic Systems (IMS) is to launch what it claims is the 'world's first hands-free and eyes-free email solution for in-vehicle use.'
Based on patent-pending technology, the device, called iLane, is said to provide drivers with a safe voice-based interface to access their email messages while on the road. iLane automatically notifies the driver of incoming emails and other important information by reading a brief summary in what the company describes as 'a natural-sounding voice', in the driver's language of choice. The driver can then listen to the entire email message, forward or compose a response and manage meeting requests using verbal instructions. Phone calls, SMS messages and a number of email attachment types can also be managed using what is claimed to be a hands-free and eyes-free interface. article continues below
