The Power of CarPlay


“CarPlay features Siri voice control and is specially designed for driving scenarios. CarPlay also works with your car’s controls — knobs, buttons, touchpad, or touchscreen. And the apps themselves have been reimagined for the car, so you can use them while your eyes and hands stay where they belong.”

My Take: Piggy-backing off of Siri, Apple’s CarPlay feels like the most promising product on the market to combat distracted driving. Carplay utilizes Siri’s technology. However, an issue I found with this article is that it still relies off of the user controlling buttons and looking at a touch screen for all of their needs. This does not solve the problem for distracted driving. Despite Siri, this system still requires the user’s hands and eyes to be taken away from the steering wheel and watching the road.
