Telematics Update Takes the Stage at the Mobile Voice Conference

Telematics Update Takes the Stage at the Mobile Voice Conference


Telematics Update’s involvement in last week’s Mobile Voice Conference in California demonstrated that the concept of the connect-car and a highly personalized user experience is spreading. Telematics Update’s representative Dave McNamara (previous multi-media and infotainment manager at Ford) spoke on the topic of ‘Talking to your Car: Speech Technology in the Automobile’ and shared insight from Telematics Update’s brand new Automotive Human Machine Interface Report for 2013. Details and key topics featured in the report can be found via the website: He noted that the automotive is catching up with the mobile industry in keeping the consumer ever-connected.

Dave McNamara commented on the synergies between these industries: “The Mobile Voice Conference and Telematics Update Conferences have much in common. They are both great conference as the place to experience emerging products and technologies and, most importantly, network with the industry insiders.  The Mobile Voice Conference, as expected, is focused on voice technologies and is well attended by developers. Voice technology is finding its way into mainstream products such as automotive and is improving in capability for demanding environments like the car.”
He continues that even the mobile voice arena could find benefit in moving towards the auto telematics arena. “On a broader and larger scale, Telematics Update events are a must-attend to meet the experts and industry insiders. We come not only to meet the players in voice solutions, but the entire automotive community, that are evaluating and launching a myriad of new infotainment and telematics products. Voice, as illustrated by the well-attended Mobile Voice Conference is a key user interface technology whose time has come not only for phones but cars.”
