AI for a world in motion
We’re on the front end of the innovations and digital technologies that are reinventing transport. Virtual assistants, empathic AI, machine learning, contextual reasoning, voice biometrics — those are just the beginning of the expertise. We’re bringing cars, the cloud, personal devices, and the IoT universe together.
Powering the smartest assistants on the market – period
Cerence Drive delivers the industry’s most intuitive automotive and mobility voice assistants in the market. This is our robust, automotive-grade portfolio of products, services, toolkits, and innovations that define in-car experiences for the leading car makers around the world—understanding individual preferences, personalizing entertainment, and executing complex contextual commands. We can find preferred parking, play users’ favorite songs, direct them to the best-priced gas stations, and turn up the voices they need to hear while muting the ones they don’t. Cerence supports automakers with capabilities that maximize the safety, productivity, and enjoyment of customer journeys while elevating the identity of each unique brand.
Bring voice assistants to market at Formula One speed
At a time where innovation is moving at faster and faster speeds, drivers desire—and OEMs demand—fresh, cutting-edge capabilities at every turn. To satisfy this global hunger for better and faster, Cerence introduced Cerence ARK to dramatically improve the time to bring voice and AI assistants to market. Cerence ARK—which stands for AI Reference Kit—is a new, turnkey automotive product that enables automakers to quickly develop, deploy, and manage a fully localized automotive voice assistant without losing any of the performance, flexibility, and breadth that Cerence is known for.
Cerence Cognitive Arbitrator
Deliver connected driving while enhancing customers’ connection to your brand
From smartphones to smart homes to services at work and beyond, today’s drivers connect with an expanding variety of IoT devices and voice-enabled assistants. The Cerence Cognitive Arbitrator empowers your automotive assistant to seamlessly fold users’ preferred third-party AI into each car’s scope of services—without compromising privacy, security, or the integrity of your own branded user experience.
Cerence Car Life
Smarter Cars Require a Smart Approach
Informed drivers are the best drivers
At Cerence, we want people to fall in love with their cars. As with any long-term relationship, this begins with a deep understanding and appreciation for what’s possible in a car—from the first time behind the wheel and throughout the life of the vehicle. The Car Life product suite can help create a tighter bond between people and their cars, the same way they become attached to other hard-to-live-without electronics, like smartphones. This will ultimately help car makers and partners by transforming their customers into clients, delivering knowledge and insight that enables them to better support their drivers and establish brand loyalty.
Cerence UX Services
Helping Automakers Deliver a Powerful and Compelling User Experience
“Design is not just what it looks like and feels like.
Design is how it works.”
— Steve Jobs
We know that driver adoption is driven by incredible design—even more so than technology—and that user experience (UX) is key when it comes to driving end-user affinity for and long-term usage of in-car technologies. Cerence UX Services will provide valuable insight to automakers as they look to differentiate from competitors and build loyalty and deeper connections with their drivers. Cerence UX Services is a suite of evaluation and validation services that provides automakers with deep analysis and understanding of the in-car user experience and driver satisfaction.
Cerence Multimodal Interaction
Our industry-leading AI for cars just got smarter
Cerence sets the bar for voice in cars, building on decades of experience using conversational artificial intelligence and deep learning to perfect the way machines speak and listen. But sometimes it’s more convenient to communicate with a flick of the hand, a scribble, or a pointed look—so we’ve evolved Cerence Drive to understand handwriting, gestures, emotions, and even the human gaze. Like a friend, your assistant just gets it, shifting seamlessly from one mode of human interaction to the next.
Cerence Conversational AI
Deep learning for connected cars
Our AI knows your users as well as it knows the world. With future mobility around the corner, connected driving is less of a dream than an expectation. Soon every car will have an AI-powered automotive assistant—but only those equipped with Cerence Drive will offer a solution intuitive enough to think for users, curating responses based on who they are, who they’re with, what’s around them, and where they’re headed.
