We’re creating moving experiences for vehicles around the world. We’re Cerence. We utilize sophisticated A.I. and sensor data to entertain, inform and delight drivers and passengers. Whether it’s voice, gesture, gaze or touch technologies, the experience is the sum of the parts. Raise windows with a quick glance, hear a restaurant review with the point of a finger, display an augmented reality cityscape on a windshield, drive with just the sound of your voice.
