XMOS and Sensory Partner to Deliver Keyword Detection Applications

November 3 2016, 03:00
XMOS and Sensory have announced a partnership to deliver Sensory’s TrulyHandsfree voice control technology on the XMOS xCORE-VOICE far-field voice capture processing platform. TrulyHandsfree is the latest generation of voice keyword detection software from Sensory, a recognized provider of speech recognition solutions. The partnership combines embedded speech capture with proven voice control technologies, with high accuracy and robust performance in noisy environments. 

The XMOS xCORE-VOICE platform delivers microphone aggregation combined with sophisticated voice processing and a flexible interface to automatic speech recognition systems. Sensory’s TrulyHandsfree Voice Control technology builds upon the initial success of the company’s TrulyHandsfree Trigger, and now offers multiple phrase technology that recognizes, analyzes and responds to dozens of keywords. It consistently recognizes phrases even when embedded in sentences and surrounded by noise. Traditional approaches to keyword spotting have failed in high noise and frequently false fire, but TrulyHandsfree can deliver over 95% accuracy without false fires even in high noise and speech.

Sensory has set the standard for mobile handset platforms’ ultra-low power “always listening” touchless control. To date, Sensory’s technologies have shipped in over a billion units of leading consumer products.

Commenting on the partnership, Todd Mozer, CEO of Sensory said, “XMOS is driving new levels of integration and performance in the voice processing market. The combination of its hardware and software solution platform with our TrulyHandsfree technology delivers a potent combination into this rapidly expanding voice-enabled market.”

Mark Lippett, XMOS CEO added, “We are delighted to partner with Sensory to integrate its industry-leading keyword detection technology as part of the xCORE-VOICE solution. We expect our partnership to help drive the adoption of voice interfaces across a wide range of consumer products.”
