Delphi was looking for a flexible navigation software solution for Audi’s A1 standard headunit. The challenge was to upgrade the entry level hardware platform with high-end navigation and HMI features such as real alternative routes and full-word-speech-entry.
The navigation software is based on the navigation solution EB street director. Using the EB GUIDE Speech Target Framework, a speech dialog system has also been integrated into the infotainment solution.
Delphi and Audi benefited from EB’s highly adaptable navigation and speech dialog software. It allowed to implement Audi’s features easily with the required quality standard for in-car navigation. EB supported Delphi to offer a new generation of feature-rich embedded infotainment systems to Audi, even for standard head units.
Dr. Wilhelm Steger, Managing Director Infotainment & Driver Interface Europe, Delphi: “EBs products were easily integrated into our system architecture and have helped Delphi to offer Audi superb quality and added functionality.”
