Visteon Voice Reaches Infiniti

DEARBORN, Mich.--The 2002 Infiniti Q45 Sedan will feature Visteon Voice Technology.

“We’re excited about this contract with Infiniti. It’s a big step in diversifying our customer base,” said Michael Johnston, Visteon’s president and chief operating officer.

The technology understands continuous and natural patterns of speech without the need to be trained to one voice and confirms the driver’s commands.

Drivers activate the system by pressing the voice button, located on the steering wheel, to obtain voice control of several functions within the vehicle interior. The application in the Infiniti Q45 enables drivers to control audio, climate control, cellular phone (available in the fall) and navigation systems via voice commands.

The 2002 Infiniti Q45 was unveiled at the North American International Auto Show, and is scheduled to hit showrooms in April.
