No buttons necessary; no script required.
At Nuance, we study human conversation to create technology that is easy to talk to and intuitive in its responses. That’s why our automotive speech recognition needs no buttons or prompts to be activated—and why it’s OK with shortcuts, pauses and interruptions.
With Dragon Drive, your assistant understands casual, implicit requests and responds thoughtfully, like a friend. And, like all our AI-powered innovations, the conversational interface is designed with your brand—and your priorities—in mind.
Satisfaction with automotive assistants is directly related to how easy and natural the interaction is. Our platform is designed to optimize user experience by creating the industry’s most fluent, flexible, intuitive, and friendly conversational interface. Dragon Drive understands naturally spoken commands, knows the identity and location of each speaker, and responds with a human-like voice that can be customized to the personality of your brand.
It takes a lot of hard-working technologies to create effortless in-vehicle communication, including automotive-grade signal enhancement, acoustics innovation with voice-biometrics, hybrid embedded-cloud speech recognition, natural language generation (NLG), natural language understanding (NLU), and text-to-speech (TTS).
Free users from the biggest barrier to accepting automotive assistants: the rules and constraints that regiment how they can talk to the car. Natural Language Understanding (NLU) eliminates the need for scripts, prompts, and fixed commands, delivering flexible, friendly interaction that understands even implied requests.
A paradigm shift from conventional automotive voice control systems, NLU combines proprietary technology, statistical modeling and Deep Learning based on Neuronal Networks (NN). The result? Assistants that understand what users want when they speak in their own words, executing on implicit and explicit commands as well as complex, one-shot utterances.
Users shouldn’t have to think before speaking to their automotive assistants. With Dragon Drive, each interaction evolves organically without buttons, wake-up words, prompts or scripts. Our conversational AI enables assistants to grasp speakers’ intent when they speak casually, forget details, or pick up a topic they abandoned hours ago.
The age of autonomous driving is just ahead of us—but Nuance accelerates the future in everything we do. Our technologies set the standard for artificial intelligence in cars, allowing OEMs to deliver comprehensive connection within a consistent brand experience.
