Meeting the Distracted Driving Challenge

Consumers crave connectivity, whether it’s using messaging, navigation or social media, listening to music or accessing the seemingly endless amount of content on the mobile Web. And people want to be connected all the time – even behind the wheel. Our evolving mobile culture has created a need for instant gratification when it comes to communicating, and finding content and information. As such, smartphones, tablets and MP3 players -- and dangerous distractions – are almost always at an arms-reach within cars.
Automakers are working hard to balance the demands of their consumers and bring connectivity and content into the car without bringing in added distractions. And with that comes a need to enable drivers with a safer, smarter way to engage those systems – otherwise, drivers cannot take full advantage of what’s possible for today’s connected cars. Nuance’s voice platforms address this need, giving automotive OEMs the ability to integrate voice and natural language understanding technologies as part of the in-car and connected experience. People simply speak to send and listen to messages, get directions from anywhere, quickly find and access music, and more. And it’s all done with hands on the wheel and eyes on the road, minimizing the dangerous manual-visual distractions posed by today’s handheld devices when brought into the car.

Study on Driver Distraction and Voice Interaction

Voice interaction can be regarded as a promising approach to increase driving safety by avoiding the main factors of driver distraction. In comparison to visual-manual control modes, voice interaction generally improves the driving performance, reduces the subjective workload and allows drivers to keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel. Voice interaction will become more and more common for in-vehicle systems.
