IMS' iLANE is an intelligent, portable device that lets users control a smartphone using voice commands while inside a vehicle. The user can open, listen to, and respond to e-mails entirely hands-free. The system provides verbal notice when new e-mails arrive on the smartphone. It reads e-mails out loud, on command. To respond to an e-mail, the user speaks the command "Reply" and composes the e-mail by speaking aloud; the system hears and sends a message to the recipient from the smartphone. Other smartphone applications may be accessed and controlled by voice command, including managing phone calls, SMS messages, and the calendar.
