BMW will be the first to feature Nuance’s Dragon Drive! Messaging technology

Nuance Communications unveiled Dragon Drive in May this year. Dragon Drive hopes to provide car owners the capability to send and read text messages through voice using its voice recognition technology. Nuance previously said that its messaging service will be followed by other services soon, which will include controls for listening to music, web browsing, directions and more. Today, Nuance is announcing that German automaker BMW will be the first car manufacturer to utilize Dragon Drive! Messaging.

Dragon Drive! Messaging will be integrated into the new 2012 BMW 7 Series, BMW 3 Series Touring, and BMW 3 Series ActiveHybrid cars. The technology will be a new BMW ConnectedDrive feature of the automaker’s latest navigation system. The 2012 BMW 7 Series with Dragon Drive technology will hit the market next month.

The BMW 3 Series Touring and BMW 3 Series ActiveHybrid will follow later this year. “People want to connect with family, friends, and colleagues while they’re on the road, but without the dangerous distractions posed by manually engaging handheld devices,” said Arnd Weil, vice president and general manager, automotive, Nuance. “By integrating Dragon Drive! Messaging into the car itself, BMW and Nuance are delivering a smarter, safer way to communicate.”
