“AXON Platform for Conversational IoT is an end-to-end embedded and cloud-based delivery and IoT management solution for companies looking to implement a voice interface in a variety of environments, including industrial, commercial and consumer segments,” explained Martin Manniche, CEO of Greenwave Systems.
Manniche says that the solution is part of a flexible architecture with:
- voice recognition,
- voice biometrics powered wake-up word and,
- AI-powered language understanding.
Nuance Mix supports access to cloud services such as news, weather and Q&A. In addition, the platform introduces new network features expected by carriers for HD Voice, media optimization, security and IoT end-point management. The reference implementation streamlines product development and gives providers direct control over managed services.
Greenwave powers millions of devices on advanced networks through telecom, utilities and service providers for their managed services such as audio, video, broadband and energy management systems.
The consumer litmus test
“Consumers will be the litmus test on the IoT – if these intelligent devices aren’t able to seamlessly integrate into day to day life, the opportunity for the ecosystem and consumers is lost. That’s where the AXON Platform for Conversational IoT becomes incredibly important, allowing people to easily interact with technology as it was intended,” said Kenn Harper, vice president, emerging solutions, Nuance Mobile.
The solution combines customizable voice recognition and AI with microphone beam-forming, acoustic echo cancellation, barge-in capabilities, speech signal enhancement, Bluetooth audio, Wi-Fi and Z-Wave connectivity, into a single platform that can be fully customized and scalable for the world’s leading service providers.
