With the mass adoption of voice assistants, more and more products are becoming voice enabled. For companies that traditionally do not have experience designing for voice and audio, this can be overwhelming and difficult. Join this webinar as we discuss the voice stack architecture, provide some basic guidelines to follow to build a successful voice-enabled product, show recommended voice design patterns for typical consumer based voice-enabled products, and demonstrate TalkTo, DSP Concepts’ Audio Front End software running on an NXP i.MX RT685 MCU.

The biggest challenge in embedded GUI development is managing changes in design (iterations) that nearly all projects encounter. Historically, changes at the design level resulted in teams needing to hunt for and replace all changed assets manually within the project. This would result in development delays, changes being missed, coded behavior being lost, and ultimately, poor UX.
Join this session to learn how customers from medical to automotive have leveraged Storyboard’s Rapid Design Import and Iteration Technology to streamline design changes and develop embedded GUI applications that provided outstanding user experiences while getting to market on a tight deadline.

There are many challenges in the automotive industry today to cost-effectively and widely access and the massive amount of data available in new vehicles. Vehicle data from dozens of sensors like camera, LiDAR, radar and inertial motion, along with operational data from vehicle ECUS can provide valuable real-time insights into vehicle driving environments and vehicle performance. Key vehicle data can be pre-processed on the edge in the vehicle and compressed up to 98% while maintaining high fidelity for advanced analytics and training/deploying machine learning models to continuously improve vehicles from design through their production lifecycle. In this session, we will identify the industry challenges and how a consortium of five industry companies formed The Fusion Project to provide a complete vehicle-to-edge data lifecycle that integrates machine learning training and deployment in a cost-effective way that reduces training time by 10x.
