Chris is a state of the art tech and digital voice assistant developed by a Berlin based start-up, German Autolab, which helps drivers with navigation, phone calls, sending messages and listen to music while driving.

How Is This Voice Assistant Different?
This new digital voice assistant is an innovative speech recognition system. In addition, gesture control gives it a hands-free feature to ensure that your hands remain on the wheel thereby. This makes driving more convenient and safer.
