Japanese automaker Toyota has launched an innovative new service that is designed to make it easier and more convenient for drivers to go about accessing information and guidance without having to physically reach for their driver manuals.
The Toyota Driver's Companion is a Cloud-powered platform that allows owners and drivers of Toyota vehicles to access a wide range of information, tips and tricks as well as execute settings and make tweaks to their vehicular environment with the help of speech detection technology.
By simply uttering a spoken question, users can get assistance on the specs of their vehicle or the location of certain buttons, whilst also setting up personalized settings and getting updates on safety-related information.
Set to be introduced in the 2021 Toyota Sienna before being expanded to other vehicles, the Toyota Driver's Companion provides a sneak peek at the future of cloud-based driver manuals.
