With a long history in text input, Cerence delivers the iconic Cerence Swype keyboard for automotive applications, bringing a vast range of input options for simple, intuitive interactions between drivers and their cars. 

Cerence Swype enables drivers to easily enter text in the new era of digital cars. This product family includes the classic “Swyping” method – where drivers slide their finger from one letter to the other in one continuous motion – as well as handwriting recognition and traditional keyboard tapping. When applied to the automotive setting, Cerence Swype is powerful tool for entering addresses, searching for points of interest, accessing car functions and more, enabling safe, speedy interaction with the automotive assistant. 

By bringing this technology to the car and with 15 million cars on the road with Cerence Swype, Cerence remains committed delivering the smartphone-like experience that OEMs today seek for their vehicles and for their drivers. Cerence Swype has been optimized for operation on the touch screens and touch pads that are commonplace in today’s cars, with necessary adjustments based on the position of the driver relative to the screen.
