News : Nuance’s Dragon Drive Powers the Voice Interface of SAIC’s Connected Car Roewe RX5
Burlington, MA, USA, July 7, 2016 -- Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) announced that its Dragon Drive connected car voice and content platform powers China’s Roewe RX5 connected infotainment system, developed by a joint venture of SAIC Motor Corp., one of China’s car manufacturers and Alibaba Group Holding Ltd., China’s e-commerce provider.
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.
