Hands-free and eye-free email while driving

Intelligent Mechatronic Systems (IMS), a telematics and automotive safety device company, is launching new technology which lets you email hands free from your car.

The new product, called iLane, provides drivers with a voice-based interface to access their email messages while in transit.

iLane automatically notifies the driver of incoming emails by reading a brief summary in a sat-nav style 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 iLane.

  • IMS is already in discussions with several automotive OEMs and international network carriers to offer iLane to their customers.
