Location-based services provider Telenav has integrated its in-vehicle cloud-based search capabilities with Nuance Communications' Dragon Drive connected car platform, allowing automakers to deliver in-car search capabilities.
Telenav's services will be available through Nuance's Dragon Drive platform. Telenav, which provides both onboard and cloud-based end-to-end navigation services, will be offering its broader cloud search technology through the Dragon Drive Connect content platform.
"We are excited to work with Telenav to bring robust and intuitive cloud search capabilities to automakers through the Dragon Drive platform," said Arnd Weil, senior vice president of Nuance Automotive, in a statement. "Cloud-based search allows automakers to deliver a wealth of relevant information and content to drivers, ultimately resulting in a simple and effective search experience that just works."
"We're proud to work with Nuance to deliver cloud-based search for points of interest and addresses," said Hassan Wahla, co-president of Telenav's Automotive Business Unit, in a statement. "Our cloud services always push the boundaries of vehicle connectivity. With a focus on deep vehicle integration, Telenav's cloud search service, delivered through Nuance's content platform, offers an enhanced driving experience with powerful, simplified search capabilities for automakers to bring to their customers."
