iNAGO develops intelligent voice-based solutions for major corporations, creating the next generation of human-like computers. iNAGO provides netpeople, an assistant platform that allows companies to create their own unique, intelligent assistant for their products.

In Japan, the netpeople assistant platform has been used for everything from PCs to robots and, most importantly, automotive solutions. Companies such as Toyota, Clarion, Brother and NEC use netpeople to deliver smart and simple user experiences through their products and services.

Now, iNAGO has released the next generation of netpeople specifically designed for automotive, with new AI technology, an easy-to-use web platform, and preset features and services specifically for the car. This next generation of netpeople supports the advancements in smart cockpit deployments by OEMs and the emergence of Mobility as a Service (“MAAS”). iNAGO is helping automotive companies deliver a truly intelligent experience in the car that’s simple, safe and fun.

Product Information
iNAGO provides an intelligent assistant software platform to allow companies, such as automakers, to deliver their own branded AI conversational assistant specifically for their product. Key applications include:

Knowledge Assistant

  • Allows automotive manufacturers to turn product information, like owner’s manuals, into knowledge, enabling an intelligent conversational assistant that provides information and control to their vehicle.

Infotainment Services

  • Out-of-the-box applications that can be used to deliver common services such as restaurant search, POI search, weather, events and more.
  • Automotive OEM and mobility providers can easily integrate these preset services into their custom assistant solutions.

POI Recommendation
Developed with AISIN Japan, this application allows a netpeople assistant to provide POI recommendations to users based on their preferences to deliver a personalized experience in the car. iNAGO is working with AISIN to provide this service as a means of monetizing mobility and travel.

Differentiation Factor(s)
