Who needs voice?

Volker Springer, sr. speech expert at Elektrobit, talks about the future of voice assistants




Currently, voice assistants in the vehicle are mainly used for simple commands, such as finding a destination or making a call. Conveying information via speech is fast and safe, when drivers need to keep two hands on the wheel. For voice to evolve, what needs to happen to make the shift to really becoming an assistant to the driver?

As OEMs look for solutions, they will need to examine which use cases are best and what roles industry stakeholders play. In addition, other factors such as embedded functionality, cloud connectivity, and multiple voice assistants which work together seamlessly must be taken into account.
