In first seven years of the past decade alone, sending text messages while driving led to accidents that killed an estimated 16,000 people. An analysis of federal data on road fatalities, in the American Journal of Public Health, concluded that deaths due to “distracted driving” surged from 2000-2007. Car companies and car kit manufacturers are battling these issues with connected systems.
Rubidium’s speaker independent voice recognition allows customers to initiate a hands free call via Bluetooth connected devices. Users can speak a name and initiate a call, browse their phone books and do much more without ever taking their hands off the wheel. Rubidium’s voice trigger functionality allows you to control functionality with just the sound of your voice.
Eventually all the automobile’s systems from the Radio/CD player to air conditioning to the security systems themselves will all be voice controlled. Companies like General Motors and KIA have used Rubidium’s technology to pilot voice recognition systems in their automobiles. Currently GN Netcom in their Jabra brand car kits use Rubidium’s embedded technology. Background noise, microphone direction and incoming call navigation issues all combine to make hands free operation a tough technological issue. Rubidium has solved these issues with a robust noise reduction algorithm, beam former technology and its patent pending barge-in feature, which allows you to reject or answer a call while another call is already in progress. With 12 languages supported, more and more companies worldwide are coming to Rubidium for their embedded speech technology needs.
