Nuance and ROOBO Deliver Fully Optimized Audio Solutions for Smart Speakers, Robotics and IoT
Drastically reducing OEM and ODM development time, this new audio capture solution combines Nuance’s market-proven speech signal enhancement algorithms with ROOBO’s hardware/software expertise and speedy time to market, resulting in a complete solution that incorporates all critical elements necessary for smart home, smart speaker and robotic applications. Together, Nuance and ROOBO are simplifying what was previously a complicated development process; OEMs/ODMs typically develop hardware and software separately, integrating and testing performance at the end of the process. Now, OEMs and ODMs can take advantage of a pre-packaged, integrated hardware/software solution powered by Nuance and ROOBO, making adjustments to the end product as needed.
Nuance speech signal enhancement (SSE) is a suite of signal processing technologies that remove noise from microphone input and send out a cleaner signal for improved speech recognition and hands-free communication in noisy environments. Nuance SSE has been commercially used in the automotive domain for more than 15 years, as well as in the smart home and in PC and mobile applications, delivering optimal hands-free communication and speech recognition results. In its partnership with ROOBO, Nuance will provide SSE algorithms for wake up word, barge-in, 360-degree speaker localization, and far-field operations – critical technologies for smart speakers, robotics and smart home devices. In addition, Nuance’s automatic speech recognition (ASR) is pre-trained to support these use cases.
In less than three years, ROOBO has transformed from an AI robotic product company to a global AI solution provider for all kinds of intelligent devices in several industries. Based in
“China is a hub for IoT innovation. In ROOBO, we’ve found a global hardware partner that shares our goal: providing OEMs and ODMs with pre-tested, high-quality solutions that are fully optimized to provide incredible end user experiences across the IoT,” said
“By combining our respective hardware and software expertise, we and Nuance will have the ability to dramatically reduce time to market for OEMs and ODMs,” said
