Škoda presents new digital assistant: “Okay, Laura”
The new Kamiq city SUV and the compact Scala can from now on be controlled with the help of Laura, the new Škoda digital assistant. In vehicles equipped with the top-of-the-range Amundsen infotainment system, a simple “Okay, Laura” is enough to activate the enhanced voice control system – there is no need to push a button or do anything else.
"Laura" even understands natural speech, so drivers are not restricted to a set of predetermined commands or phrases.
The new, enhanced and online-based voice control system can answer inquiries about a wide variety of topics and obeys commands. It will start navigation to a desired destination, for example, find a favourite piece of music or take dictation for an SMS.
"Laura" already supports six languages – English, German and French as well as Spanish, Italian and Czech. With an on-board eSIM card included as standard, the Kamiq and Scala are always online. This allows "Laura" to seamlessly combine on-board and online data and thus respond quickly and flexibly to any situation.
The presale of Kamiq will begin in October, while the commercial launch is scheduled for November.
