We recently looked at Ford’s office-in-your-truck 2011 Super Duty, which was on display at the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. That featured Windows Embedded Auto software from Microsoft, but Ford’s not the only auto maker using this.

We also got an up-close look at tKia’s new UVO (Your Voice) system, which utilizes Windows Embedded Auto for some cool voice controlled features and more:

With UVO, users can place and receive calls and stream media over their phones if they connect with Bluetooth. Users can also use voice controls to operate the CD player and devices that plug into the car’s USB port.

This year’s CES event displayed some interesting innovations in automotive features, and provided a glimpse into what just may become very common in vehicles.
