Ultradata Selects Sensory Speech Recognition for Road Genie Hand-held Navigator
Ultradata Road Genie Audio Navigation System selected Sensory's RSC-4128 speech recognition IC.
Utradata Systems selected the Sensory RSC-4128 for the Road Genie Audio Navigation System. "This low-cost, easy-to-use highway travel product provides real benefits in price and simplicity," said Monte Ross, CEO of Ultradata. "Our earlier generation product named the Talking Road Wizard was a hot seller, using and providing voice output in addition to electronic display. With Sensory's voice recognition technology, users now may speak their commands for a truly hands-free experience. For example, when in the FOOD category, you just say 'McDonalds' and it responds, 'McDonalds, four miles, exit 165, east one mile.'"
The handheld Road Genie provides verbal directions and driving times to services and towns across the continental U.S. It has over 80,000 services near highways, and over 100,000 pre-programmed city-to-city directions that can be called upon as needed by the user..
The RSC-4128 is an eight-bit microcontroller inside a voice recognition system on chip (including 16-bit ADC, DAC, digital filtering, RAM, ROM, output amplification, timers, comparators and more). Sensory's
FluentChip™ software runs on the RSC series chips and allows for speech recognition, speaker verification, speech compression and output, music synthesis and more. Sensory's Quick Tools (Quick T2SI and Quick Synthesis) allow vocabulary development, and tools from Phyton enable software coding and testing with an assembler, compiler, and in-circuit emulator working together under an integrated development environment.
