CES 2019: Honda introduces Honda Dream Drive Infotainment System :Comments

Recommended Posts

At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas NV, Honda is demonstrating a prototype of their new Honda Dream Drive infotainment system. The new system integrates both driver and passenger infotainment.

For the driver, Honda Dream Drive offers an expansion of Honda's existing in-vehicle payment system.  It allows drivers to pay for fuel, movie tickets, food pickup or delivery, and parking. Additionally, the system can make restaurant reservations and share the vehicle location with family and friends. Originally exclusively through Visa, the payment system now include Mastercard and Paypal. 

For passengers, Honda Dream Drive offers games, watch movies, listen to music, use travel apps, and explore points of interest along the route, all from the passengers' mobile device. 

As this is a demonstration of a prototype, there is no official release date announced for Honda Dream Drive.

I can so see this as being the future main distraction device in Honda Autonomous auto's. Will be interesting to see how it plays out.

Yeah, there is nothing to prevent the driver from hooking their phone up to the system and playing movies in the front seat while driving.

Yet- you still cannot legally hold a phone to your ear and talk while driving. Interesting.

Well that'd be a silly way to watch a movie on your phone.

Oh, yer one of those folk who talks to movies, eh?

Some people like to talk to their movies, other like to watch and others like to be immersed in them, welcome to the 21st century of VR Porn CES along with the all new for 2019 Robotic Adult Toys section.

Me, I think I want to take a new Atlas for a long road trip! :P

Recently I've been talking to the TV Show Designated survivor because the writing has gigantic holes and laziness in it... but I'm 75% of the way through the show so I want to see what happens.

      Last week we reported that Honda would be closing their UK manufacturing plant in Swindon.  That plant produces Honda Civics and CR-Vs mostly for the European market.  However, in addition to European production, the Swindon plant also produces the Civic Hatchback and Civic Type-R for North America. Production in Swindon is to finish out the model run into 2021.
      Automotive News reports that Honda CEO Takahir Hachigo said "Given out efforts to optimize production allocation and production capacity on a global scale, we have concluded that we will produce the Civic for North America in North America." The North American sourced Honda Civic is built in Alliston, Ontario and Greensburgh Indiana. 
      The Honda Civic hatchback makes up about one third of Civic's 325,760 US sales for 2018.

      Confirming reports from yesterday, Honda has officially announced the closure of its manufacturing facility in Swindon UK as part of a global restructuring at the end of the current products lifecycle in 2021.  The Swindon plant manufactures Honda Civic and Honda CR-V.
      Honda officials insisted that Brexit was not the reason for the closure, but rather global trends in the automotive industry.   A factory in Turkey will also close as part of the restructuring as Honda recenters all EU market manufacturing back to Japan. 
      No changes in production or jobs are expected until the 2021 time frame.
