A New Generation of Visteon Voice Technology(TM) Demonstrates the Possibilities in Buick Bengal Concept

    Dearborn, Mich. (ots-PRNewswire) - Visteon Corporation (NYSE: VC) and  General Motors have teamed up to announce and demonstrate the possibilities of  automotive technology that will blend safety, personalization, comfort and  convenience in the new Buick Bengal concept car.

    Advanced Visteon Voice Technology(TM) and CD6 Music System are working  together to support the Buick concept of making the automobile a Quiet Servant  -- an exciting new concept in automotive technology that will deliver a safer, more spacious interior, with increased personalization in a stylish, sporty  all-new Buick concept.    

    "We're pleased to team up with General Motors and demonstrate the possibilities of our leading edge technology for their customers," said  Michael Johnston, Visteon president and chief operating officer. "Visteon  Voice Technology(TM) allows drivers to keep their hands on the wheel and their  eyes on the road while using their voice to control virtually anything on the  interior or exterior of the car."

    Visteon Voice Technology(TM) is the first and only voice actuated automotive control feature that recognizes six languages (and regional  accents) while ignoring surrounding sounds. Making it possible to be used in  all types of automotive products from traditional hard tops, with the windows  down to elegant and graceful convertibles, like the Buick Bengal. This  advanced technology accepts more than 118 commands controlling nearly every  function on the inside or outside of the vehicle from the six disk CD player  to hood and headlight operations, to putting the top down and operating on- board navigation, adjusting temperature, seat location, and speed.

    The combination of Visteon Voice Technology(TM) and CD6 Music System  delivers personalization in every aspect of vehicle operation, all designed to  reduce driver distraction, keeping the drivers hands on the wheel and eyes on  the road. Based on Visteon's leading edge technology it won't be long before  this technology includes an in-vehicle Web browser that will translate e-mail  to voice messages and spoken replies to text.

    In addition, Advanced Visteon Voice Technology(TM) confirms the driver's  commands in the driver selected female or male voice. The voice control  system eliminates the need for bulky dials and buttons to activate the various  functions of the vehicle, opening the door for transforming the traditional  instrument panel to improving automotive audio or other comfort and  convenience features desired by today's consumer.

    Visteon Voice Technology(TM) was the first voice-activated technology used  to control cellular phones in 1992.

    Visteon Corporation is a leading full-service supplier that delivers  consumer-driven technology solutions to automotive manufacturers worldwide and  through multiple channels within the global automotive aftermarket.
