Purpose and goal
The project aims at evaluating and demonstrating how voice interaction (speech and voice based sound) can improve interaction between humans and intelligent systems in future industry (in 2030). The project includes stakeholders from the process and manufacturing industry (Smurfit Kappa Kraftliner and Svalson). Additionally, it involves partners (Scania CV and POC Sports) with unique competence in voice interaction from the field of automotive. The project partners form a strong industry-wide consortium for a continued R&I investment in the area.
Expected results and effects
The project will provide a better understanding of the potential of voice interaction by identifying relevant use cases, generating suggestions for design solutions, and addressing practical problems. The overall result will set basis for future R&I projects, where solutions can be further developed, and technical and interaction-related challenges are dealt with.
Planned approach and implementation
Initially, a survey of needs will be conducted where a description of an industrial environment in 2030 is developed. Based on this and experiences from previous and ongoing projects in the field, a number of user scenarios are presented which then will set basis for the continuation of the project work. This is followed by a technical survey and the development of a prototype. The prototype is then evaluated by end users.
