Cerence is a world-renowned American developer of AI solutions for automobiles and its voice assistants has been applied to nearly 400 million cars globally.
Under the agreement, Cerence will provide VinFast with a number of core technologies such as automatic speech recognition, natural language understanding (NLU), text-to-speech, and natural language generation (NLG) and enhancing voice signals to develop virtual assistants capable of two-way communication like humans.
The automotive assistant can understand user’s commands and questions in six different languages, namely English, German, French (of French and Canadian people), Spanish and Dutch.
In particular, in the version jointly developed by Cerence and VinFast, users can interrupt the virtual assistant to give new commands instead of having to listen to the entire automatic dialogue like some other solutions.
Currently, VinFast is developing and will sell in Vietnam, North America and Europe three smart electric car models, namely VF e34, VF e35, VF e36, in 2021 and 2022.
