Nuance Communications’s automotive platform will provide AI-powered voice recognition for select car models from Geely, the company announced. It will enable voice control for key features in GKUI, Geely’s in-car user experience. GKUI is Geely’s digital cockpit system, integrating infotainment, connectivity, and vehicle management into one smart in-car system. It debuted in the 2018 Bo Yue SUV and is present in nearly 20 models.
According to Nuance Automotive it powers a multitude of features that are core to the GKUI experience on some of Geely’s models:
• High-speed, voice-powered interaction – Nuance’s platform enables a responsive human-machine interface (HMI) that satisfies the demanding standards of the Chinese market, allowing drivers and passengers to interact with GKUI naturally, just as they would with another person, to ask questions and complete requests around all key in-car functions: point of interest search, navigation, temperature control, etc.
• Speech signal enhancement (SSE) – A suite of signal processing technologies removes noise from microphone input and sends out a cleaner signal, improving speech recognition and hands-free communication with GKUI.
With this Nuance Automotive now powers more than 250 million cars on the road across more than 40 languages, creating conversational, intelligent mobility experiences for nearly every major automaker in the world, including BMW, Audi, Daimler, Fiat, Ford, GM, Geely, Hyundai, SAIC, Toyota, and more.
