Faces To Match The Voices Of Mercedes' LINGUATRONIC System

September 1, 2009

GPS and other in-car control systems have matured to the point that we've really begun to care about their sound. The clunky, robot voices from early generation models don't amaze us anymore; drivers want to hear someone friendly leading us through traffic jams and construction zones. To put a face on those people, Daimler has shared photos of the actors behind its LINGUATRONIC voice-operated control system. Most are women, and all look like they'd be more human than the HAL 9000, although lunks like us still prefer having Homer Simpson tell us where to get off. [WorldCarFans]
