The conversational voice interface supporting Mandarin Chinese in the new Roewe RX5 integrates Dragon Drive’s hybrid embedded-cloud voice recognition and natural language understanding (NLU) built on Deep Neural Networks to drive a voice experience. Dragon Drive also brings speech signal enhancement and text-to-speech, delivering a system that listens, understands and responds in a more intuitive and intelligent manner, ultimately minimizing driver distractions.
"We’ve worked closely with SAIC to deeply integrate our Dragon Drive platform to deliver an intuitive experience for the Roewe RX5, with incredibly high accuracy, speed and ease of use that exceeds China’s consumer expectations of the connected car. It will undoubtedly change the landscape of the automotive ecosystem in the region," said Arnd Weil, senior vice president and general manager, Nuance Automotive.
The Roewe RX5 featuring Nuance’s Dragon Drive technology will ship in China in August 2016. The system supports Mandarin Chinese speech recognition and NLU, as well as Mandarin Chinese, Mandarin Taiwanese and Cantonese text-to-speech.
