Smart Devices To Get A New Voice With Knowles’ AISonic White Goods Standard Solution
Knowles Corporation is one of the market leaders and global provider of advanced micro-acoustic microphones and speakers, audio processing, and precision device solutions. They recently announced a new, complete development solution called AISonic White Goods Standard Solution which will enable fast and easy voice integration for smart appliances. The development kit enables OEM and ODMs to build voice-activated control and far-field speech recognition capabilities into smart appliances, including refrigerators, ovens and microwaves, vacuums, clothes washing and drying machines, dishwashers, and more. The Knowles White Goods Standard Solution was used by Samsung in its FamilyHub connected hub for smart appliances.
This is a development package built upon Knowles’ AISonic Audio Edge Processor IA8201 for the most accurate contextual audio and sensing, and includes an IA8201 reference board accompanied by an API supporting integration with Application Processors, or MCUs or RF chipsets, a system firmware release configured to support sensors, and pre-integrated microphones from Knowles to enable high-quality audio capture and high signal-to-noise ratio. The Knowles White Goods Standard Solution supports voice service interoperability, allowing multiple voice assistants to be integrated into a single device and enabling customers to talk to the service of their choice in a secure manner by simply saying its name.
This enables the Knowles White Goods Standard Solution to be integrated into a broader ecosystem of smart appliance devices, allowing for greater product development freedom and innovation.
With the smart home sector expected to see an increase in the consumer base, this will further push consumers into an investment spree. Knowles integration partner Sensory Inc. provided the wake word engine for the White Goods Standard Solution, enabling Amazon-certified voice wake and far-field voice recognition for memory-constrained smart appliances.
