Innovación: Amazon and Ford make a Connected Car
Ford is developing ways to pair millions of vehicles globally with home automation devices or smart home products.
Ford is working to integrate Ford Cars and Amazon Echo to provide voice control access between the car and home. Drivers could also access Internet-enabled devices, such as lights, home security systems, TVs and garage doors.
Using Ford SYNC AppLink, drivers may also connect with the Wink smart home platform enabling seamless home automation, including the ability to program a garage door to open and a porch light to turn on when a certain distance from home.
“Consumers increasingly want to stay connected to their homes while on the move,” said Don Butler, Ford executive director, Connected Vehicle and Services. “Linking smart devices like Amazon Echo and Wink to vehicles via SYNC would fulfil that desire, and allow consumers to connect with their vehicles even when they aren’t behind the wheel.”
