The scope of this document is a technology-neutral approach to speech input and audible output system guidelines applicable for OEM and aftermarket systems in light vehicles. These may be stand-alone interfaces or the speech aspects of multi-modal interfaces. This document does not apply to speech input and audible output systems used to interact with automation or automated driving systems in vehicles that are equipped with such systems while they are in use (ref. J3016:JAN2014).
This SAE Information Report is provided to establish a set of high-level guidelines for systems with speech input and audible output as a means of controlling select vehicle features and functions. This Information Report addresses the appropriate application of speech input and audible output systems, their general operation and other aspects of these systems. While not a comprehensive guideline, this Information Report helps to establish general guidance to promote consistency in user experiences and expectations for operation of these systems.
