Amazon Alexa Headed To Select Lexus And Toyota Cars

In order to benefit from Alexa assistance, users will be required to have an Amazon account. Already, the models are said to be fitted with voice- control enhancements thus making it easy to introduce the voice assistant.

We've built a way to answer those questions: The GearBrain - a compatibility checker designed for Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, displaying every smart device that works with either of the leading smart speaker assistants.

Talking with Bloomberg, Vuzix confirmed that its pair of AR glasses will be the first with Amazon's Alexa voice assistant integration.

The announcement was made on January 8that the Consumer Electronics Show held in Las Vegas, Nevada where Toyota unveileduse of Amazon Alexa in the automobile will commence from 2018 onwards.

360i used proprietary software to quiz Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa on their ability to respond to the same set of queries across four categories: 5,000 in travel, 5,000 in retail, 3,000 in finance, and 3,000 in automotive. This would make it possible for wearers to keep track of stock prices and sports scores using the spectacles. Voice control is practically a necessity for Internet-connected eyewear, as we've seen with devices like Google Glass and Microsoft's HoloLens. Reports emerged in November 2016 that Apple Inc. was working on a dedicated AR headset, while in March a further report claimed the company has a team dedicated to the project. Vuzix says the glasses will be compatible with prescription lenses. The Company's products include personal display and wearable computing devices that offer users a portable high-quality viewing experience, provide solutions for mobility, wearable displays and virtual and augmented reality. The developer kit can be reserved on the company's website, and it costs $1,997.

We'll see Vuzix's AR glasses with Alexa support before the summer of 2018, at a price point around $1,000 United States dollars. A goal the company plans to achieve by 2019, according to Vuzix Chief Executive Paul Travers.

But Toyota will also allow a motorist to use the system from home.
