CEVA ClearVox Simplifies Voice Pickup

Voice-based control is arguably becoming another killer app, or killer app-enabler in the very significant shifts we are seeing in automation. After a bumpy start in car feature control (for navigation, phone calls, etc) and early smartphone “intelligent” assistants, voice-based interfaces now seem to be maturing into a genuinely useful capability. As I have said before, it’s about time. Buttons and keyboards, real or virtual, and byzantine menu hierarchies are clumsy, distracting, sometimes dangerous and anyway are a poor substitute for the way we humans would ideally like to communicate with our machines.
