VoiceBox Technologies, a provider of contextual voice and natural language understanding (NLU) technologies for automotive, mobile, and IoT products, has launched the Embedded Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) product for automotive applications.

Integrated with the company's NLU technology, VoiceBox's Embedded ASR now offers auto makers a single solution for powering the next generation of in-car voice systems.

"In-car systems have long been held back by their lack of available alternatives in ASR software," said Tom Freeman, senior vice president of Kymeta, a provider of connected car technologies, in a statement. "By providing their DNN enhanced ASR together with their superior NLU, VoiceBox now offers automotive companies the opportunity to advance their in-car solutions to better meet the voice experience consumers want."

Designed to convert speech into text, which is then processed through NLU, VoiceBox's Embedded ASR supports more than 20 languages. The company's Embedded ASR solution offers deep neural networks (DNN) that enable the processing of complex, contextual conversations. It is also includes parallel hybrid processing with machine learning. This allows user queries to be simultaneously processed in both embedded and cloud systems to optimize the delivery of results.
