Infrastructure for safe in-vehicle speech interaction


The goal of the project is to develop an existing API for the Talkamatic dialogue system, as well as guidelines, tools and processes for app development. The development would build on ongoing work in a couple of EU FP7 projects underway at Talkamatic, with input from Volvo Trucks.

Problem description

How do we enable app developers of in-vehicle apps to improve the safety of their apps using voice recognition? Talkamatic AB have developed a dialogue system for in-vehicle use. Currently, an API is being developed as part of ongoing EU projects.

Volvo Trucks are interested in the development of APIs, Guidelines, Tools and Processes to enable developers to add safe speech interaction to their apps. The role of Volvo will be to formulate requirements and give feedback on ideas and prototypes.

Recommended skills

Python programming. Familiarity with other lanuages (C++, Java) is a plus. Familiarity with the concepts of APIs as well as guidelines, tools and processes for software development is also a plus.
