Re: Vehicle Ecosystem
I agree. I think it’s so easy to get distracted, especially these days, when driving. Between music, cell phones, gps’. I think, not only will drivers not want to drive with a helmet on, (like you said) but it’ll be another distraction.

Re: Vehicle Ecosystem
freehe,

Headset, not helmet. And as was clearly said above, it's not an entertainment device but for driving enhancement.

Re: Telcos Can Drive Connected Vehicle Ecosystem
@afwriter we also have older cars. However, given that newer cars come with hands-free activation features that usually rely on voice, I'd think that they could also respond. I found a video of a car from 2007 that talks on YouTube.

Re: Telcos Can Drive Connected Vehicle Ecosystem
With consoles built into newer cars and being able to connect to Siri and Echo through your car, I am surprised that this isn't a thing. I also have a 2004 Mitsubishi so maybe newer cars do talk to you and I just don't know it.

Re: Telcos Can Drive Connected Vehicle Ecosystem
@afwriter It could be it was a bit ahead of its time. Now people are used to Siri and others talking to them, but back then some people may have felt weirded out by it.

Re: Vehicle Ecosystem
@freehe Right now I think it is just to show off, "Cool, look what we can do with tech!" But I think that this actually could be a great advance for people whose physical disabilities might prevent them from operating a car in the traditional way. As for mind control, well, we already are largely influenced by what Google and other dominant players choose to show us.

Re: Telcos Can Drive Connected Vehicle Ecosystem
My dad had a 1980-something Nissan that would talk instead of ding. So if you left the lights on it would say "lights on" or if you forgot to buckle it would say "buckle seatbelts." I'm surprised that didn't become more common place.

Re: Vehicle Ecosystem
@freehe that would be assuming that this data would be passed on to law enforcement. I don't think they would go that far with it, but you bring up an intriguing point.

Re: Vehicle Ecosystem
@Freehe that is a fantastic question. I'm sure that it would change from how to manually control the car to how to safely stop the car and abandon it in case of malfunction. You would have to think that in the future of driverless cars they would do away with steering wheels.

Re: Vehicle Ecosystem
@JohnBarnes, I don't see how the benefits outweight the risks. Drivers are already distracted with technology and mobile devices. How is wearing a helmet going to stop drivers from being distracted with an non-autonomous car? Even if drivers no longer have to drive why would a driver want to wear a helmet?
