Visteon and BMW are planning to introduce wireless voice-controlled in-car telephone Bluetooth modules as optional extras for all current BMW X5, BMW 3 Series and 5 Series cars from September 2002.

Visteon says the jointly developed voice-controlled system will allow BMW drivers the wireless and hands-free use of mobile phones.
“With this programme and by signing a development contract for further future technologies, BMW has documented the faith it has in Visteon,” said Dr. Marlis Basili-Hartmann, Visteon’s Global Account Manager for the BMW Group. “We are committed to underpinning our business relations with BMW both now and in the future by supplying innovative, high quality systems and technologies and also by offering excellent customer service.”

“Our collaboration with BMW clearly underlines the fact that Visteon chose the correct course of action in setting up a customer-facing organisation,” said Dr. Wilfried Janke, Vice President and General Manager, German Customer Business Groups. “The staff at our Munich office ensures that the programme management runs efficiently, benefiting from direct communications with the customer.”

Visteon’s Bluetooth Interface Module with Visteon Voice Technology extends voice control from vehicle systems to consumer devices.

The so-called integration solution enables data and voice commands to be easily transferred, helping drivers manage their information, entertainment and communication. The hands-free system, featured mainly in telecommunications products until now, integrates the benefits of Bluetooth wireless technology with Visteon’s Voice Technology and applies it to automotive applications.
