The long-term partnership between SoundHound Inc. and Hyundai has resulted in yet another integration of Houndify’s Voice AI platform in their cars, this time in select models of the all-new 2021 Elantra and Elantra Hybrid in North America. This is the first time that Hyundai’s Dynamic Voice Recognition system is being launched in cars for the American market, but multiple other models have already been launched globally featuring the voice recognition system. 

Voice recognition in the 2021 Hyundai Elantra and Elantra Hybrid provides drivers with access to cloud-based information from hundreds of knowledge domains, all hands-free, making the driving experience safer, easier, and more convenient. 

Built with Houndify’s Speech-to-Meaning and Deep Meaning Understanding technologies, the Dynamic Voice Recognition system in these new models delivers the most progressive in-car experience in its class. The inclusion of a connected voice recognition system in the high-volume 2021 Hyundai Elantra models is a strong indicator that voice AI adoption is growing in everyday vehicles and is no longer reserved for only high-end models. Voice-enabling the Elantra Hybrid is another step toward creating a safer and greener world.

To activate the Dynamic Voice Recognition system, drivers simply need to touch the “push to talk” button on the steering wheel and ask for what they want using natural voice queries. The voice recognition system can access information from Houndify’s range of cloud-based domains across a wide range of topics including weather, navigation, sports scores, stock market updates, restaurant recommendations, local search and much more, making the in-car experience more connected and convenient.

Some examples of the types of queries supported include:

  • “Is it going to rain in San Francisco next week?”
  • “Find me Asian restaurants within five miles that are not Thai, have free Wi-Fi, and at least a four-star rating”
  • “I need coffee”
  • “Did the Detroit Lions win last week?”
  • “What time is it in Hyderabad when it’s nine o’clock am in San Francisco?”
  • “When is the next Super Bowl?”
  • “How’s Apple stock doing today?”
  • “Send message to David Rose ‘I am running a bit late see you in 10 minutes’”

By leveraging the Houndify platform, Hyundai has already launched a broad range of cars globally featuring their new voice recognition system, including the Kia Seltos and Hyundai Venue in India. The voice recognition system in the Seltos and Venue currently supports Indian-English accents, and will soon include additional languages from across the Indian region. In 2017, SoundHound Inc. and Hyundai first announced their partnership to bring voice-enabled AI to their cars beginning in 2019.
