Cerence has introduced ARK Assistant, an automotive voice assistant working in US English.
It is built on Cerence voice- and AI-based systems and builds on its off-the-shelf assistant for the Chinese market launched last year.
Additional languages are planned, and it provides OEMs the ability to develop, deploy and manage voice assistance quickly.
Stefan Ortmanns, EVP and general manager, core products, Cerence, said, “As in-car voice assistant usage grows exponentially and consumers demand access, we are proud of this milestone development of Cerence ARK Assistant to help auto makers deliver robust solutions to stay ahead of their competition.”
Cerence says ARK Assistant offers accurate speech recognition, the world’s most natural human-like voice output, a personal assistant in the dashboard, vehicle integration, data privacy, flexibility to use different operating systems, and personalization for OEMs and developers.
