Visteon has tied up with AI-mobility major Cerence Inc to integrate conversational AI in Visteon’s recent SmartCore product award with a leading motorcycle manufacturer.

The product will include core Cerence technologies, including AI-powered voice recognition, natural language understanding, and text-to-speech – all with global language support – alongside Visteon’s Android-based SmartCore technology platform. SmartCore is the integrated domain controller powering the instrument cluster, infotainment, telematics, and display. The system will launch with a leading motorcycle manufacturer in 2024, powering a 12-inch display that offers connected apps and over-the-air software download capabilities.

“The motorcycle market is undergoing a digital-cockpit transformation similar to passenger vehicles. Providing our customer with an integrated digital experience technology created by Visteon with Cerence’s technology equips riders with voice-powered access to a dynamic infotainment experience, keeping them safe and informed while on the road,” said Bob Vallance, SVP, Customer Business Groups & Marketing, Visteon.

This integrated solution can be augmented and expanded to meet the customer’s needs with the addition of other Cerence core technologies, Cerence Cloud Services, and more.

“As two-wheelers become more prevalent, there’s a need for intelligent, voice-powered experiences that help keep riders safe through deep integration with their expansive digital lives. The infotainment system is the central brain of these vehicles, and we are proud to partner with Visteon as the leader in cockpit electronics to together create consistent, integrated experiences that can be simply deployed by our mobility customers,” commented Sanjay Dhawan, CEO, Cerence Inc.
