Skoda made her voice assistantSeptember 26, 2019
Czech automaker Skoda introduced its voice assistant. Her name is Laura and, according to the creators, she already understands six different languages and even distinguishes dialects.
The list of voice assistant skills is constantly expanding and improving. Already, she knows how to build a route, look for her favorite song in the library and read incoming messages. To start a conversation, you need to say “Okay, Laura” – similar to calling Siri or “Alice”. In Mercedes, for example, the voice assistant is activated by the phrase “Hey Mercedes” (or “Hello, Mercedes” in Russia).
So far, the Laura is available only on the Scala compact hatchback and on the Kamiq city crossover. The voice assistant speaks six languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian and Czech. In the basic configuration, it is equipped with a built-in electronic SIM card, so “Laura” can search for the translation of unfamiliar words on the Internet.
In the future, Laura will be able to take control of a large number of vehicle functions, and thanks to the system of trained artificial intelligence, its proposals will become more and more connected and meaningful.
