With Natural Language Understanding (NLU) and high-quality text-to-speech, Nuance has long set a standard for user-friendly interfaces in the connected car. Empowering their Dragon Drive platform with AI will take this a significant step further. The automotive assistant of the near future comes with the following technological advancements:

Smart interaction & personalization

Dragon Drive not only understands natural language, it also remembers former exchanges and conversations. Voice biometrics technology makes sure that the assistant always knows who is talking. Consequently, with each exchange the assistant will reach the suitable result much faster and thus makes driving even safer.

Contextual reasoning framework

Dragon Drive processes context information from various sources: car sensors, weather forecast or traffic report. The answer to a driver’s request will therefore conveniently reflect the context, like finding a service station before running out of gas.


With its access to large knowledge databases, the automotive assistant makes sure that driver and passengers always have the right information at the right time – be it car-related instructions from the Smart Car Manual or route-related information from the Travel Guide.
