In the coming years speech recognition will be a commodity feature in car. Control of communication systems integrated in the car infotainment system including telephony, audio devices and destination inputs for navigation can be done via voice. Concerning speech recognition technology biggest the challenge is the recognition of large vocabularies in noisy environments using cost sensitive hardware platforms. Further intuitive dialog design coupled with natural sounding text to speech systems has to be provided to achieve a smooth man-machine interaction. This chapter describes commercial driven activities to develop and produce speech technology components for various automotive applications including the used speech recognition, speaker characterization, speech synthesis and dialog technology, the used platforms, and a methodology for the evaluation of recognition performance.
