The renowned German Automobile honcho BMW has announced that it’s going to set up a voice controlin some of its cars. It is based of Nuance’s Dragon Drive Technology which will be installed in some of their luxury 7 series and 3 series car Models. The work is going to commence in this summer. The service of this facility will come with a smartphone to access with the driver.

The ‘Dragon Drive’ is going to be an awesome facility to be provided to the driver as it will respond to all the text messages and emails in terms of speaking, editing, answering and listening. This will be a complete PC on the dashboard of the car. There will be commands given on the system which will enable the driver to add a new paragraph or line, format the emails and even dictating the required punctuation marks. The driver will also be able to call any of his/her contacts and direct to any address.

Apparently, as these facilities are somehow get familiar with the Apple’s Siri Virtual Personal Assistant program. BMW has kept the system only on voice controlling factor as the driver has to keep his/her steering wheel in sight but on the contrary this process is out of law when it comes to road safety.

BMW has a knack of joining mobile companies with its cars as previously it had done a merger with Blackberry Motion. This was that certain Blackberry model user will be capable of answering their text messages and emails if they are driving BMW car compatible with that particular phone. But, this service excluded the voice dictation facility.

Being the up-to-date service provider of this facility BMW has previously installed a library of more than 10,000 voice commands in its My Ford and My Ford Touch Models.
