Surf the Web in Your Car -- Hands Free
Because she is concerned about the emerging usage of Internet in cars, Dr. Meirav Taieb-Maimon, from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel, has designed a new search engine that leaves your hands free. In this article, Discovery News writes that the system is using voice-recognition software, a microphone and speakers.

The software itself is composed of three elements, two speech recognition components from Microsoft and a custom piece of software called 'Maestro.' When a driver says something such as 'nearest gas station,' Maestro converts speech to text, builds a search query and sends it to a search engine. It then converts back the results to spoken instructions for the driver.

More research needs to be done to know if the system is safe for driving. If it proves to be safe, a 'Maestro' might be the Web driver in your next car. Read more for other details.
