VoiceBox Automotive Expands Global Product Reach
Company Adds Four Car Brands in 13 Languages
2013 International CES
LAS VEGAS -- January 9, 2013
VoiceBox Technologies Corp., the award-winning innovator of Voice Personal
Assistant applications built on its patented Conversational Voice technology,
today announced that it has expanded its global automotive product reach. The
Company has recently added four major car brands to its expanding automotive
business: Chrysler, Dodge, Mazda and Maserati. Products will ship on cars in
10 major European languages and 3 Asian languages – Mandarin, Korean and
“We are proud to welcome these great automotive brands to the VoiceBox global
family,” said VoiceBox’s CEO, Mike Kennewick. Previous brands shipping
VoiceBox globally include Toyota, Lexus, Scion, Fiat and Renault.
VoiceBox has been an early pioneer in the use of natural voice technologies in
the car, having shipped advanced voice capabilities initially in the Lexus
2008 RX. The Company was at the forefront of the Connected Car trend, which
allows users to access information located “in the cloud,” shipping on the
award-winning Toyota Entune. Unlike other solutions, VoiceBox’s Intelligent
Hybrid architecture doesn’t require users to know what information is on or
off board, as do competitive solutions. So, unlike those solutions which ask
the user to say, “Services…Traffic…Seattle,” VoiceBox allows them to simply
say, “What’s the traffic in Seattle?”
The Company’s next product innovation, which it is showcasing at CES,
integrates its Personal Assistant interface, which provides a personalized
experience that goes beyond the current single-question-single-answer paradigm
popularized by Siri. In contrast, VoiceBox products can provide a more
interactive, proactive personal assistant experience.
“Together with our patented technology advantages and personalization
capabilities, the automotive market is also leveraging our extensive foreign
language, product localization expertise,” added Kennewick.
