DICO: Drive and Talk

Conference poster

We present a demo of a set of dialogue system applications (a cell phone, a radio and a Driver Information Display) for controlling various devices in a vehicle. A dialogue system allows the user to talk to the devices to control them instead of e.g. pushing buttons. All applications use the GoDiS [5] dialogue manager and implement multimodal menu-based dialogue (MMD) based on the menu structures of existing GUI interfaces. In-vehicle dialogue system design is a challenge since the user is - and must be - focused on something else other than the dialogue, namely the traffic. An obvious advantage of spoken dialogue in the vehicle environment is that the driver does not have to take her eyes - and attention - off the road. The flexible dialogue capabilities of the GoDiS dialogue manager are crucial for decreasing the risk of cognitive overload.
