During International CES (News - Alert) 2013, Ford introduced the Ford Developer Program, which makes the Sync platform available to anyone interested, including other carmakers.
“Smartphone applications can now be used on a Ford vehicle,” said Hau Thai-Tang, vice president of engineering at Ford. “Some programs can work with Ford’s platform such as MLB.com, Pandora and NPR (News - Alert). Today, some cars will not just take you to the right place. With the existence of mobile apps, Ford also has a strong capacity to evolve and be more competitive. In the car industry, owners like to take advantage of the current technology.”
Additionally, users can easily track the best places where two people can hang out. The system allows others to integrate compatible applications. In this case, there are many topics which can be read. The Ford’s sync platform can also assist more drivers to specifically locate certain addresses, which may require easy-to-understand instructions.
Ford may take things slowly but some systems have to be changed. Some of us know that anticipation can sometimes beat major competitors. Embracing the beauty of innovation helps Ford’s management to figure out the exact needs of consumers in the years ahead.
End-users today are living in the world of high-end equipment and systems. The same thing goes with vehicles nowadays. Another system that can be striking in the eyes of consumers is voice recognition, which looks very helpful. Currently, Ford has 100-1,000 voice commands so drivers will not run out of solutions especially when in trouble. We are not so sure if cars will all be this way.
As soon as consistency is there, many consumers will look forward to real advancement. Thanks to modern technology.
