Volkswagen is adding a connected car feature that allows a driver or passenger to adjust the temperature in the car by using voice control.
The Smart Climate system in the new Golf vehicle allows a driver to say “I am cold” or “I am warm” to activate the climate functions.
The new air conditioning system has a menu for specific functions such as “warm feet” or “clear view” to demist windows, which can be activated by voice control or by touch.
Digital microphones in the car recognize whether it is the driver or the passenger speaking, and then can adjust the controls for either accordingly.’’
Other commands include “cool feet” and “fresh air.”
