Honda Automobiles: Honda Demonstrates Collaborative Technology during CES 2017

  • Honda Silicon Valley Lab “Xcelerator” is an open creation module designed to promote partnership between early theatre record startups and tellurian Honda
  • The Xcelerator module is operative with startups to fast antecedent technologies that enhance a mobility experience
  • Xcelerator partners LEIA Inc. and VocalZoom arrangement singular record during Honda booth

Continuing a office of open creation and collaboration, Honda is showcasing projects with startup companies LEIA and VocalZoom during CES 2017. In partnership with a Honda Xcelerator, these dual innovators’ technologies aim to change a in-cabin experience.

Together, Honda Xcelerator and LEIA have grown a new 3D motorist arrangement proof that leverages nanotechnology to yield seamless transitions between opposite observation angles for warnings and driver-assistive systems. VocalZoom has been operative with Honda Xcelerator to request a visible microphone record to urge voice communication inside a vehicle.

“We’re flexible, dignitary friendly, and demeanour for singular opportunities to work closely with partners to co-create and showcase modernized technology,” pronounced Dennis Clark, vital fondness lead during Honda Xcelerator. “Our concentration during CES is to showcase a work with dual of a partners–LEIA and VocalZoom–to request their singular technologies to raise a in-car experience.”

Honda Xcelerator
Honda Xcelerator is an open creation module designed to promote partnership between early theatre record startups and tellurian Honda. Honda combined a module to rivet innovators in an open and understanding environment. The module offers appropriation for fast prototyping, a collaborative workspace and pairing with Honda mentors.

3D Driver Display
LEIA is a record spin-off of HP Labs and a provider of a heading holographic arrangement resolution for mobile. The LEIA 3D arrangement provides a comfortable, healthy form of 3D that is easier to demeanour at, that is critical for a in-car experience. It also gives designers and developers a new apparatus for building a some-more appealing user experience.

Although 3D can be distracting if it isn’t designed correctly, LEIA’s nanotech proceed presents abyss in a approach that feels natural. As a result, when a motorist moves his or her conduct while looking during a screen, a calm changes aspect invariably and allows for multi-view 3D imagery.

“LEIA uses nanotechnology to control a glimmer of light from a displays,” pronounced David Fattal, LEIA Inc.’s Founder and CEO. “This is a code new technique that produces multi-view 3D – holographic – calm with an rare turn of peculiarity and visible comfort for several viewers during a time. Moreover, a displays are wholly switchable to customary 2D observation mode so there is probably no downside in regulating them.”

Honda sees a series of intensity applications for this technology, from navigation to trade information, that can be leveraged to yield a some-more intuitive, available and protected in-cabin knowledge for customers.

Optical Sensor Technology
VocalZoom is a heading retailer of Human to Machine Communication (HMC) visible sensors that capacitate a some-more natural, personalized and secure voice-control knowledge and has been operative with Honda Xcelerator to request a record to a in-car experience.

VocalZoom’s visible sensor “reads” facial skin vibrations during speech, enabling it to besiege a driver’s voice from all of a other credentials sounds in a car. The outcome is clean, removed motorist commands that are significantly easier for automotive voice-recognition systems to know and conform than was formerly probable with normal voice-control solutions. In a proof-of-concept demo during Honda’s CES display, attendees can knowledge a VocalZoom technology.

“We are really vehement to be during CES with Honda demonstrating a disruptive new voice-control and voice-authentication knowledge in a connected car,” pronounced Rammy Bahalul, clamp boss of sales and business growth for VocalZoom. “VocalZoom’s visible sensor is re-defining Human to Machine Communication by delivering seamless, near-perfect opening even with credentials sound from open windows, engine noise, song playing, newcomer conversations and other interference.”

Honda during CES
Honda’s arrangement thesis during CES 2017 is a Cooperative Mobility Ecosystem, joining a energy of synthetic intelligence, robotics, and large information to renovate a mobility experience. Under this powerful a association is showcasing a series of antecedent technologies grown from a RD multiplication as good as collaborations with startups, partners and tellurian tech companies.

About Honda Technology
Honda is formulating technologies and products that allege a company’s clean, safe, fun and connected code values. These efforts embody advancements in programmed vehicles, connectivity and ultra-low CO mobility.  In North America, a association has some-more than 300,000 vehicles on a highway versed with a Honda Sensing or AcuraWatch reserve and driver-assistive technologies and some-more than 400,000 vehicles featuring Apple CarPlayâ and Android AutoÔ compatibility. Honda also is contrast modernized programmed vehicle technologies in Japan and North America and is targeting 2020 for a deployment of rarely programmed vehicles on U.S. highways.  Honda also is operative to perform a environmental and reserve vision: “to comprehend a fun and leisure of mobility and a tolerable multitude where people can suffer life.” Toward this target, Honda is essay to make two-thirds of a tellurian vehicle sales from hybrid, plug-in hybrid and electrified vehicles including fuel dungeon and battery electric vehicles by around 2030.

About LEIA Inc
Founded in 2014 by David Fattal, Zhen Peng and Pierre Evreux, LEIA Inc is a record spin-off from Hewlett-Packard laboratories building a Lightfield arrangement record height for naked-eye holographic and practical existence applications. It focuses currently on a mobile and automotive markets, with initial inclination approaching in a hands of consumer by a finish of 2017. The association is formed in Menlo Park, CA with operations in Suzhou, China. Learn some-more at

About VocalZoom
VocalZoom reserve Human-to-Machine Communication (HMC) sensors for delivering a natural, personalized and secure voice-controlled user knowledge in today’s increasingly mobile and companion world.
