Wearable computing is the future. We all know that. More companies are getting serious about this technology. Hyundai is planning to explore this field by allowing new Hyundai owners to remotely access information through wearable devices:
Hyundai’s next generation of products, starting with the all-new 2015 Genesis, will allow owners to connect with their vehicle using wearable devices. Hyundai’s cloud-based Blue Link platform makes features like remote start and service information quickly accessible through new devices like Google Glass and others.
Support for Google Glass is expected. In fact, Google Glass users will be able to see vehicle information as cards.
On Google Glass, vehicle information will be presented as cards optimized for the Glass user interface. Push notifications will alert the owner when maintenance is due and allow quick service scheduling by enabling the wearer to initiate a call using the device’s built-in functionality. The application will also allow owners to access popular Blue Link features like remote start, remote door lock/unlock, vehicle finder, POI send-to-car powered by Google quickly using the device’s compact interface.
Just think about the possibilities here. It is truly exciting to see more companies working on their Glass strategy already.
