ARKAMYS’ ECNR suite fully compatible with Apple CarPlay TM
ARKAMYS ClearSpeech (Echo Cancellation & Noise Reduction) fully compatible with Apple CarPlay TM
The ARKAMYS ClearSpeech software suite for improving voice quality of in-car hands-free calls has been successfully tested with Apple CarPlay™ this summer in Aachen (Germany).
A new step forward for ARKAMYS ClearSpeech to provide the most advanced and up-to-date ECNR solution in Automotive.
The iPhone owners can benefit of the ARKAMYS series of features to compensate and enhance speech communications in degraded situations inside a vehicle.
Compatibility for Hands-Free calls:
For those tests, both narrowband (8 kHz) and wideband (16 kHz, HD-Voice) calls have been performed.
The results of this test session showed that ARKAMYS ClearSpeech ensured:
- The full Duplex voice transmission, with sufficient echo and noise reduction and with low levels of artifacts
- The high quality and intelligibility of speech in narrow and wideband calls
- An optimized Signal-to-Noise Ratio in typical driving conditions (30mph and 60mph)
Compatibility with voice recognition using Siri:
Regarding the Speech Recognition (Apple Siri™) tests, ARKAMYS ClearSpeech Noise Reduction was adapted to run at 24 kHz in order to get the best performance of Apple Siri™.
Thanks to an efficient suppression of the background noise, ARKAMYS ClearSpeech helped at improving the recognition rates in driving conditions (where background noise greatly degrades the accuracy of speech recognition systems).
Being fully-compatible with Apple CarPlay™ opens the paths to new evolutions in the field of user-experience by bringing Automotive-Mobile Telephony convergence into reality.
