Introducing Kardome Mobility: Revolutionizing In-Car Voice Interactions
Kardome Mobility is the only software solution that can individually capture up to six speakers over three seat rows with a single mic array in the overhead compartment. It isolates the desired speech, reduces background noise and echo, and correctly identifies the person speaking
We proudly introduce Kardome Mobility, the revolutionary software solution that transforms in-car voice interactions. Auto manufacturers understand the importance of providing customers with a seamless and efficient driving experience. We developed Kardome Mobility to meet this need by enhancing speech recognition and communication capabilities, making in-car voice interactions a breeze.
Kardome Mobility employs a patented 3D spot-forming model that enables the infotainment system to identify speakers and their location, understand their speech in noisy, multi-speaker scenarios, and ensure crystal-clear communication in even the noisiest environments.
Kardome Mobility is the only software solution that can individually capture up to six speakers over three seat rows with a single mic array in the overhead compartment. It isolates the desired speech, reduces background noise and echo, and correctly identifies the person speaking.
Kardome Mobility provides all car users unparalleled convenience and control. It allows them to use their voice to make hands-free calls, control music and navigation, and access other in-car functions effortlessly.
“Kardome Mobility changes the paradigm that listening to all people in a car with a single sensor is an impossible mission,” said Kardome CEO Dani Cherkassky. “We are proud to equip cars with human-level ‘listening capabilities' that enable a reliable voice user interface as well as intelligible hands-free communication, all while minimizing the cost of the system to manufacturers.”
Kardome Mobility guarantees that voice recognition systems always hear, identify, and understand drivers and passengers while minimizing the hardware and installation costs.
Limitations of Current Speech Recognition Technology in Cars
In-car speech and voice recognition systems have come a long way but have limitations. Current speech recognition technology often struggles to accurately understand commands in noisy cars, leading to frustration and a less-than-optimal user experience.
Additionally, a vehicle filled with chatter from multiple passengers can further hinder the system's ability to interpret voice commands accurately. These limitations have been a pain point for drivers and passengers, preventing them from fully utilizing the potential of voice-activated systems in their cars.
Comparison of Kardome Mobility with Other Speech Enhancement Solutions
While other speech enhancement solutions are available for in-car use, Kardome Mobility stands out due to its unique spot-forming technology. Competing solutions employ beamforming techniques that are limited when separating speech from multiple sources in a noisy car.
To overcome the limitations of beamforming algorithms, manufacturers deploy microphones in the roof liner of the car in four to six locations. This results in additional weight, installation costs, and added bill of materials costs.

Kardome Mobility employs a 3D spot-forming model that overcomes these limitations by leveraging reverberation to improve the localization and enhancement of speech signals. Using spot-forming technology enables Kardome Mobility to use only a single sensor (mic array) to address the entire car cabin and separate speech from multiple sources, even with background noise.
The accuracy and reliability of Kardome Mobility's speech enhancement capabilities make it a superior choice for voice interactions. Whether reducing background noise, enhancing speech clarity, or correctly locating the desired speaker, Kardome Mobility provides performance and efficiency unmatched by traditional beamforming solutions.
Benefits of Using Kardome Mobility in Cars
The benefits of using Kardome Mobility in cars are numerous, ranging from lower manufacturing costs to enhanced voice AI applications and improved communication. Let's explore some of these benefits in detail.
Lower Manufacturing Costs
By integrating Kardome Mobility into existing in-car infotainment systems, manufacturers can reduce the need for specialized hardware, i.e., deploying microphones in the roof liner of the car. This ability not only lowers production costs but also simplifies the manufacturing process. With Kardome Mobility, car manufacturers can provide a superior voice interaction experience without extensive hardware upgrades, resulting in cost savings.
Voice AI Applications
Kardome Mobility enables the seamless integration of voice AI applications into the in-car environment, allowing drivers to control various functions with voice commands. Our solution offers voice biometric identification, wake word recognition, and automatic speech recognition (via an interface with a third-party ASR engine).
Precise and intelligible communication is essential in any driving environment. With Kardome Mobility's advanced noise cancellation and echo suppression technologies, drivers can confidently make hands-free calls, even in noisy conditions. The system's ability to separate speech from background noise ensures that conversations are clear and intelligible, enhancing safety and convenience on the road.
Kardome Mobility can locate where speakers are sitting in the cabin, providing a customized audio and voice interaction experience for the driver and every passenger.
A Real-World Example of Kardome Mobility
Several automotive manufacturers have embraced Kardome Mobility, realizing its potential to transform the in-car voice recognition experience. One such case study is the collaboration between Kardome and Renault Group / Software Republique to enhance the voice control system in their H1st Vision Concept Car. Software Republique is a European collaborative ecosystem enabling secure and sustainable mobility.
By integrating Kardome Mobility, drivers can experience a significant improvement in speech recognition accuracy, enabling them to control various in-car functions with voice commands effortlessly.
