SemVox wins the Car HMI Special Jury Award 2017

Saarbrücken’s AI and digital assistant specialist SemVox has won the Car HMI Special Jury Award for 2017. The award ceremony took place on June 29, 2017 as part of Car HMI Europe 2017.

A jury of renowned international experts chose to honor the ODP Workbench and ODP S3, as its development process is fundamentally different from the previous approaches, allowing automatic tests during development, reducing development time and time to market launch, and thereby lowering development costs. As part of the awards ceremony at the Titanic Chaussee Hotel in Berlin, SemVox CEO Jochen Steigner accepted the jury’s special prize from the jury’s chairperson, Ronee Chadowitz (BMW Group).

More than voice control

With our intelligent voice control technology based on semvox geni:OS, all in-vehicle services and functions can be controlled via voice. However, our dialog system offers more than just voice control. It is able to conduct an intelligent dialog with the driver and assists him or her proactively.

Intelligent Dialog

semvox systems are able to understand the driver’s intentions, to contextualize and disambiguate utterances and it can even deal with incomplete or unclear input. This unique ability allows users to speak their requests in an intuitive, natural way.

Proactive Driver Assistance

semvox software for the connected car takes into account context factors such as the current position of users, personal preferences, information from other applications, and much more into an interaction. It can even take the initiative – like intelligent, personal assistants, semvox systems provide suggestions and support the driver proactively. Of course, these functions can be adapted and customized. New services and features can be easily integrated or exchanged at any time, so you can quickly respond to new trends and requirements.

„I have found two Jazz albums: Cannonball Adderley, „Somethin’ Else“ and „Unforgettable“ by Nat King Cole. Which one do you want me to play?“

"Erm... Nat King! Play a mix!"

"Ok, I will play a mix of songs from both albums."

"It’s too hot in here!"

"I have lowered the temperature by two degrees."

"Still too warm. And stuffy! Better let in some fresh air."

"I have lowered the temperature by another two degrees and I will open the windows."
