Making your car talk will reduce the risk of accidents, according to a telematics company which has launched a new product called eVoice.
ERM Advanced Telematics says its eVoice technology can improve the experience and safety of driving through the use of human voice warnings.
At least two of the leading manufacturers — BMW and Groupe PSA — have launched or are preparing to launch production models of cars which have a conversational function.
The BMW one will use technology that many will already be familiar with because they are integrated with smart home speakers such as Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple’s Siri.
However ERM’s system is not exactly like those in that it’s more of a warning system rather an interactive one.
“The ability of eVoice to supply warnings using a human voice for teaching correct driving habits is unique in the market,” says Eitan Kirshenboim, CMO at ERM Advanced Telematics.
