Activated with a simple “Hey, Audi,” Audi’s voice dialog system currently deployed across the automaker’s lineup, leverages speech recognition, natural language understanding (NLU), text-to-speech (TTS), and speech signal enhancement from Cerence for a conversational, intuitive in-car experience. Part of a multi-level digital operating and display platform, Audi’s in-car assistant understands a variety of queries and commands spoken in everyday speech, including those relevant for electric vehicles such as, “Where is the nearest charging station?” Further enhancing the human-like interaction, the assistant can even collaborate with the driver, asking questions, allowing for corrections, and offering multiple responses to queries. A hybrid system with both cloud-based and embedded elements means drivers are never left without key capabilities, even in areas of low or no connectivity.

“It’s exciting to see design, performance and technology come together to redefine the electric mobility experience in Audi’s new models,” said Sanjay Dhawan, CEO, Cerence. “We are proud to continue our work with Audi and support their commitment to innovation as they create the next generation of uniquely Audi experiences for their drivers.”
