The Edmonton Smart Travel App Offers Verbal Assistance to Drivers

Authorities in the western Canadian city of Edmonton have developed an innovative new hands-free driving app that is designed to make it easier than ever for drivers in the city to access all the pertinent information that they require while in the midst of their commute without having to take their hands off the steering wheel or their eyes off the road.

The Edmonton Smart Travel App uses verbal warnings to let drivers know about things such as speed-limit changes, construction zone warnings, police stop information and even weather forecasts.

This driving app is a great example of simply modifying the manner in which information is relayed so that drivers can still get all the information they need but without having to disengage from their primary responsibility, which is to pay attention to the road.
