An Automotive World special report explores the exciting in-car opportunities presented by advances in voice-controlled digital assistant technology.
According to Navigant Research, digital voice assistants are projected to be embedded in nearly 90% of new vehicles sold globally by 2028. As automakers and tech companies battle to dominate the in-vehicle experience, balancing brand loyalty with consumer expectations is key. Automakers have the choice between third-party assistants or proprietary solutions.
The potential for voice assistants to take on advanced tasks, such as activating ADAS, will be dependent on natural speech development and consumer trust in systems. Voice remains an early technology in the harsh environment of the car, and any ‘unexpected operation’ could prove anathema for users.
