Alexa, drive me home!

IIoT innovators aicas and Klika Tech showcased their collaborative integration of Alexa Auto as a new standard for connecting drivers through voice recognition and real-time information from the vehicle and the world around them. The demonstration of Alexa Auto integration will showcase voice-based control over tens of thousands of configurable skills, such as controlling streaming media, local search, navigation, personalised notifications, and vehicle health. Further, the system can be upgraded remotely via Cloud, and manufacturers can provide a secure path where third-party services can be introduced throughout the components’ lifecycles. The platform can be ported onto existing electronic control units for integration with legacy environments without the need for large hardware upgrades.

The companies will introduce the seamless integration of aicas’ JamaicaCAR Framework and Amazon Alexa Auto as a demonstration for the auto industry of advanced voice recognition technology providing a safe and reliable experience. The platform was developed for OEMs as the automotive industry transitions to integrating voice-based services to improve customers’ overall experience, and enhance convenience and safety of driving.

The aicas-team has worked with customers in industrial, automotive, and other embedded software segments for almost two decades now. Originally starting out of the high-tech and academic environment in Karlsruhe, Germany, in recent years aicas has grown into a global high-tech firm with European and American branches serving global customers. Some of the largest suppliers in automotive and industrial segments use aicas software solutions and build on aicas expertise to empower their millions of devices and vehicles.
