"Automakers are keen to differentiate within the HMI through automotive virtual assistants that provide intuitive access to a range of apps and services – setting the stage for assistants that will play a central role in the evolving landscape of autonomous cars and shared car services. As such, automotive assistants need to extend beyond the driver with deep conversational and cognitive capabilities that allow the system to seamlessly understand a range of needs and personal preferences," said Derek Viita, senior analyst, user experience practice, Strategy Analytics.
"Automakers are redefining innovation in the HMI with conversational automotive assistants that bring artificial intelligence behind the wheel," said Arnd Weil, senior vice president, automotive, Nuance Mobile. "These latest enhancements to our Dragon Drive platform bring the automotive assistant experience beyond the driver’s seat, giving passengers the ability to access content and services. This shared automotive assistant concept is critical as we enter the next era of transportation, where autonomous vehicles and shared driving services begin to take shape across ‘smart cities.’ And while there will always be drivers, we’ll see the number of autonomous and shared vehicle passengers rise, giving way to more services and capabilities that automotive assistants can quickly access and deliver."
