Features and Benefits
The smartest assistant on the market
Cerence Drive delivers an effortless, unforgettable in-car experience. With it, users can manage content, access third-party services, and save their personal profiles. It not only knows which vehicle occupant is delivering commands, but also where he or she is sitting in the cabin. Finally, it learns each user’s preferences, drawing from diverse sources to personalize its recommendations.
Controls for the whole user ecosystem
With our smart home function and third-party services, users can activate their home alarms and turn on their office lights—all using voice in their car. Based on two types of powerful AI, our cognitive arbitrator integrates disparate assistants and services to make each car a control center for connected living, working, and mobility.
Improved safety through intelligence
Our AI-driven natural language understanding (NLU) yields a more intuitive dialogue with the mobility assistant, freeing drivers to stay focused on the road ahead. And, because Cerence Drive is integrated with the car’s HMI, it easily accesses sensors to address diagnostic information or to alert drivers when service is needed.
Best-in-class security and latency
Cerence Drive combines embedded and cloud-based services to create a hybrid solution that maximizes access, protects data, and safeguards against connectivity interruptions—regardless of location or zone.
Unrivaled innovation leadership
Cerence Drive is the #1 OEM partner in AI-optimized mobility solutions, improving the ride in 325+ million vehicles shipped globally. With our legacy of leadership in such solutions, we are a trusted partner to vehicle manufacturers and Tier 1 suppliers around the world.
Excellence that keeps evolving
We never stop improving—and real-time data provides powerful insights into your customers’ preferences, evolving dramatically with each service update. What does this mean for drivers? More content. Better content. Managed connectivity. Selective third-party providers.
The solution is open—and the options abound
Don’t settle for out-of-the-box. Cerence Drive is an open solution that is ready for your brand signature. The options included abound—from 70+ languages, to hundreds of content domains, to a custom UX.
A platform free of external agendas
Trends, innovations, domains, and technologies come and go. The ability to outlive them—just as your car will—is one of the hallmarks of a truly independent platform. Unlike some competitors, we don’t have an agenda, and we’ll never use your customer data for any reason other than to make your systems better, faster, and more powerful.
