VoiceBox Automotive Expands Global Product Reach
LAS VEGAS --(Business Wire)--
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 Japanese.
"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
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," shiping 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 (News - Alert),
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
"Together with our patented technology advantages and personalization
capabilities, the automotive market is also leveraging our extensive
foreign language, product localization expertise," added Kennewick.
