Cadillac CUE ups the ante for car entertainment systems

by ruchi

Cadillac announced their very own infotainment system called CUE or Cadillac User interface which offers a wide range of capabilities such as pairing up to 10 Bluetooth-enabled mobile devices, USBs, SD cards and MP3 players, voice recognition and advanced multi-touch touchscreen feature. The touch controls, sliding and pinching are not recommended for use when you’re driving, but Cadillac has provided the voice control feature for such situations. Besides then 8-inch LCD screen, there is also the Pandora Internet Radio.

With CUE, the company seems to have brought some of the first-of-its-kind features in the auto industry like Proximity sensing, Haptic Feedback, Multi-touch hand gestures, Natural Speech recognition, Linux OS and the 12.3 in. LCD reconfigurable gauge cluster (on select models). The pricing is still uncertain here but the system will be making its world debut at the CTIA Wireless show this week. We can also see that Cadillac is not just trying to give BMW’s iDrive or Audi’s MMI some tough competition here; it instead has brought a new horizon in how we interact with our cars, access information or even adapt vehicles to sync in with our personal temperaments.
