Every big brand car to be connected with Internet by 2014: Experts
London: Every car from big brands would be connected to the internet by 2014, which would pave the way for applications that find a parking space or put directions on your windscreen, according to the experts.

Experts also believe this technology would actually make driving safer by stopping people using their phones in the car but allowing them information without needing to touch a button, the Daily Mail reports.

The connected cars will allow motorists to access the internet as they drive using only voice commands, and using similar technology to smart phones, it is believed cars could have internet screens displayed on dashboards by 2014, the paper added.

Jack Bergquist, from information company IHS, told a British daily that by the end of 2014, for some of the bigger brands, every vehicle they sell will offer some sort of connectivity, adding over half of drivers would be attracted to a car that had internet capability.

It could be especially popular as driving with hand-held phones was made illegal in the UK in 2003. Bergquist said that some brands such as Audi, BMW and Mercedes were already looking at offering full internet connections in their cars and he cited Facebook as an example of how the technology could be used.

Facebook statuses or tweets on Twitter could be read out and then changed by the driver using a voice command, and Bergquist said that major brands are already spending as much as one third of their budget on in-car entertainment and technology.

Self-driving and self-parking technology is already being used by many car brands. Last month, Audi announced that its self driving technology could be commonplace within a decade, the paper added.
