A method and system for providing emergency call (e-call) services is disclosed. A third-party service center receives a communication from a vehicle over a communication pathway. Signaling is automatically sent to the vehicle from the third-party service center over the communication pathway. Location information is received from the vehicle at the third-party service center in response to the signaling. Information is forwarded from the voice call and the location information to a public safety answering point (PSAP) determined by the third-party service center.

A system for providing navigational information to a vehicle driver. An on-board system is disposed on a vehicle and processes and transmits to a data center, via a wireless link, spoken requests from a vehicle driver requesting navigational information. The data center performs automated voice recognition on the received spoken requests to attempt recognition of destination components of the spoken requests, generates a list of possible destination components corresponding to the spoken requests, assigns a confidence score for each of the possible destination components on the list, determines if a possible destination component with a highest confidence score has a confidence score above a selected threshold, and computer-generates a representation of the possible destination components for transmission to the on-board system via the wireless link for confirmation by the vehicle driver if the highest confidence score of every possible destination component is above the selected threshold.

A system for providing cloud-based common distribution applications includes one or more devices. Each device is capable of being a different device type and having different parameters. The system includes a distributed common application package for deployment and/or updating in the cloud such that the common application package installs and runs on any of the devices independent of parameters of any of the devices. The distributed common application package includes common cloud mark-up language (ML) application code, common on-board ML application code, and/or common cloud logic application code. The system has an application distribution module and an application cloud runtime engine that is used to execute at least one application on the devices.

A system and method for implementing a server-based speech recognition system for multimodal automated interaction in a vehicle includes receiving, by a vehicle driver, audio prompts by an on-board human-to-machine interface and a response with speech to complete tasks such as creating and sending text messages, web browsing, navigation, etc. This service-oriented architecture is utilized to call upon specialized speech recognizers in an adaptive fashion. The human-to-machine interface enables completion of a text input task while driving a vehicle in a way that minimizes the frequency of the drivers visual and mechanical interactions with the interface, thereby eliminating unsafe distractions during driving conditions. After the initial prompting, the typing task is followed by a computerized verbalization of the text. Subsequent interface steps can be visual in nature, or involve only sound.

A system for providing centralized connected vehicle services includes a vehicle communicating through a communications device that is a wireless access device embedded within the vehicle and/or a mobile wireless access device, the communications device transmitting at least one of language data from the vehicle indicating a language spoken by a customer within the vehicle and a voice call from the wireless access device. A central call center is communicatively connected to at least one of the vehicle and the wireless access device. A central computer server is co-located with the central call center, communicatively connected to the central call center, facilitates the voice call with the wireless access device, and automatically routes the voice call to the central call center. The central call center automatically plays a recorded message through the central computer server to the wireless access device in the language of the customer.

A system for allocating communications resources for telematics communications includes a service provider, a gateway, a currently paired mobile device having at least first and second communications channels through which communication occurs to the service provider, sensing speed or acceleration of the mobile device based on internal data, detecting changes in speed or acceleration based upon the internal data, and determining that an event notification is to be sent to the service provider based upon the detected change in the speed or acceleration. A telematics device has at least a third communications channel through which communication occurs to the service provider. The telematics device and/or the mobile device determines which of the first, second, and third communications channels is to be used to communicate to the service provider and the respective one of the telematics device and the mobile device sends the event notification to the service provider.

A system for allocating communications resources for telematics communications is provided. The system includes a service provider, a gateway, and a telematics device. The telematics device: initiates a telematics communication between the telematics device and the service provider via a network; determines whether a network resource allocation for the telematics communication is still required based upon user intent information; and sends a notification of a change in the network resource allocation via a secondary communication channel. The secondary communication channel can be one of a first link coupled to the gateway and a second link coupled to the telematics device.
