Sony and Honda have announced their new electric vehicle brand called Afeela. Here are all the details on this.
Since the introduction of Siri back with the iPhone 4s two years ago, production car manufacturers have sought to offer consumers better integration with their smartphones, and Honda has long since been an advocate of the Siri 'Eyes Free,' integration of which the company announced last week for select models on its production line. But following the lead of many other companies in harnessing Siri's voice-recognition capabilities isn't the only trick Honda has up its sleeve, for now, the Japanese company has revealed that the 2014 Honda Civic Coupe and 2015 Honda Fit will be sporting even more integration by way of 'HondaLink' technology. Details, as ever, follow after the break.
Honda may have already announced earlier this year that it would support Apple's Siri Eyes Free feature in some of its cars, but the Japanese car maker hasn't stopped there. Not content with already being towards the forefront of Apple's mobile integration within cars, Honda has now confirmed that it will also be the first car firm to offer iOS mirroring in one of its upcoming automobiles.
The power of voice recognition technology is being utilized by many companies across the globe, as it has been for quite some time. Siri (along with similar implementations of other platforms) has helped bring such technology to the forefront, and although the initial hype surrounding Apple's voice assistant has petered out somewhat, Honda has just announced its intention to bring Siri support to a fleet of its automobiles in the coming months.
