Toyota is teaming up with Software Giant Microsoft to bring voice recognition to its cars. Toyota will have access to intellectual properties ranging from OS, Voice Recognition, AI and Gesture Control. This is not the first time they both have been teamed up.
Toyota Connected uses Microsoft’s cloud computing services to individualise customer experience. Toyota may not be the only one to offer this since Microsoft is not legally bound to offer it to any other car maker.
The monetary size of the deal was not disclosed.
