Until recently, the user experience in the automobile consisted of driving and listening to the radio. With recent advances in wireless communications and speech recognition, however, the possibilities for information access in the automobile have expanded tremendously. We describe our voice recognition technology and how it enables convenient voice interaction with information from the Web, E-mail, voice mail, and electronic map services. We also describe recent advances we have made in our technology to operate robustly in the harsh environment of the automobile. With these advances, we foresee driving in the future becoming much more safe, productive, convenient, and fun.
