PSA has signed a partnership agreement with Silicon Valley artificial intelligence (AI) and natural language voice recognition start-up, SoundHound.

The French automaker maintains the Deep Meaning Understanding technology developed by SoundHound is the only solution which, like a human being, can instantly answer multiple questions asked in a single sentence.

SoundHound is developing voice and AI integration algorithms to tailor speech recognition technology and natural language understanding capability to Groupe PSA’s vehicles.

The new generation voice assistant will enable Peugeot, Citroën, DS, Opel and Vauxhall customers to converse naturally with their vehicle.

The digital personal assistant will be able to act on its own to perform a variety of tasks, such as finding a restaurant which meets several criteria, for example, open on a Sunday evening, activating vehicle functions and launching connected services.

With a single voice command, drivers will be able to simultaneously regulate temperature, ventilation and the direction of air conditioning.
