To simplify the dining out experience, German car company BMW is releasing an all-new digital feature inside its automobiles called the ConnectedDrive that will let passengers make table reservations through their auto. The cloud device is able to suggest local eateries, book a table as well as provide detailed directions to take the consumer to the location all through one platform.
The ConnectedDrive feature is works off a virtual cloud platform allowing drivers to seamlessly connect to the food industry using their vehicle. The device offers an interactive voice-controlled service where consumers can state what they'd like and have the device find it for them. A command can be as simple as, "table for two at a seafood restaurant" and ConnectedDrive will source a venue close by, call to make a reservation and direct the driver to the location.
