Title (EN) VOICE INTERFACE SENSOR FREE VEHICLE NAVIGATION SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE NAVIGATION SANS DETECTEUR A INTERPHASE VOCALE POUR VEHICULE
Abstract:
(EN) An audio navigation system including an artificial intelligence routing algorithm which does not require any internal or external sensors to locate the vehicle. The interface with the driver is via voice input and voice output and is therefore visually non-distracting and safe to use when the vehicle is in motion. The hardware is built around an optical disk player and therefore can be used for entertainment as well as navigation functions. Digitized maps, compressed voice records and the computer programs are stored on an optical disk.
(FR) Est décrit un système de navigation audio comprenant un algorithme d'acheminement faisant appel à l'intelligence artificielle, qui n'exige aucun détecteur interne ou externe pour localiser le véhicule. L'interface avec le conducteur s'effectue par l'intermédiaire d'une entrée et d'une sortie vocales et par conséquent ne gêne pas la concentration visuelle du conducteur et s'utilise en toute sécurité lorsque le véhicule est en mouvement. Le matériel s'articule autour d'un lecteur de disque optique et peut par conséquent s'utiliser pour des applications de loisirs ainsi que de navigation. Les cartes numérisées, les enregistrements vocaux condensés et les programmes informatiques sont stockés sur un disque optique.
