Smart vehicle voice platform simple enough for a Raspberry Pi
22 February 2018
Snips, the embedded voice recognition platform for connected devices, announces the launch of its in-car voice assistant, that can work using a Raspberry Pi.
The solution enables a number of popular voice-activated use cases, including navigation, sharing ETAs with contacts and or being able to call them direct from the driver’s seat. The new solution is readily available for automotive infotainment systems manufacturers and integrators.
Built with proprietary AI technology, the platform runs completely offline, independent from the cloud, which guarantees low latency, GDPR compliance and control over car manufacturers’ brand identity and data. Additionally, Snips’ deep learning based models are optimised for performance and efficiency, and is able to run on low-power devices as simple as a Raspberry Pi 3.
Snips will show a demonstrator of its smart vehicle solution at Embedded World international fair in Nuremberg. Visitors will be able to test it live at the company booth in Hall 3A/3A-102 of the exhibition space.
“Connected vehicles have already become the next big thing for the automotive industry. Today we launch a new production grade voice solution that will allow car manufacturers all over the world to offer their customers better in-car user experience. Our embedded solution is a real alternative to the existing cloud-based analogues: it allows car manufacturers to be GDPR compliant, take control of their brand identity and guarantee consumer data privacy,” said Dr. Rand Hindi, Snips CEO.
Snips has recently announced the launch of its voice platform with wakeword detection, speech recognition, natural language understanding and dialog management capabilities in German language in addition to French and English.
