Issue Date: 2016-03-07

HERE and Nuance Communications, a provider of voice and language solutions, have announced a relationship to enhance integrated location and voice services in the connected automotive market.

Nuance will be working with HERE to create innovative voice and natural language solutions that create an intuitive experience for the driver. Nuance will leverage global map content and point of interest data from HERE to optimize its Dragon Drive connected car platform, resulting in unparalleled accuracy for its navigation and POI domains.

"Navigation and POI services are among the most important part of the in-car experience – and automakers must be able to deliver a system that gives drivers a safer, smarter way to find directions and local places to eat, shop or fuel up," said Arnd Weil, senior vice president and general manager, Nuance Automotive. "Integrating HERE's global map and POI data ensures that when drivers speak an address or destination – the in-car system listens, understands, and responds accurately, seamlessly."

Together, HERE and Nuance are working to provide a driving experience that's more connected, coherent and comprehensive than ever before. "By working with HERE to synchronise our databases, knowledge bases and the profiles that are used, we can offer a comprehensive experience that better caters to every driver and delivers a more connected car," Arnd concludes.
