Siri to be integrated into cars in 2012

GM, Mercedes, BMW, Land Rover, Jaguar, Audi, Honda, and Toyotawill be collaborating with Apple on the implementation of a new function called Eyes Free that works with a button mounted on the steering wheel.

By pressing this button, drivers will be able to interact with Siri without taking their eyes off the road with a view to creating safer driving conditions.

The function will be complete by the new Maps app that Apple introduced at the WWDC, which includes a 3D mapping feature and real-time traffic, as well as by the turn-by-turn navigation system.

In addition, 15 new languages have been added to Siri on the new version of the iOS.
