CARDO ANNOUNCES THE WORLD’S FIRST NATURAL VOICE OPERATED MOTORCYCLE COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS

Introduces PACKTALK BOLD and PACKTALK SLIM – New hands-free, Dynamic Mesh (DMC) devices

[Milano, November 7, 2017] – Cardo Systems, the global market leader in wireless communication systems for motorcyclists, announces today at EICMA its release of the world’s first natural language operated devices. With the introduction of the PACKTALK BOLD and the PACKTALK SLIM, Cardo leapfrogs the discourse about the ideal button control and instead opts for an always-on, natural voice commands. Both new devices represent new standards in ease-of-use, are fully integrated with Apple’s Siri™ and “Ok Google”™, and offer true hands-free operability. New devices will be available for shipment in Spring 2018.

“Thirteen years ago Cardo was the first to introduce Bluetooth communications to the riding experience. Today, we reset the market with the world’s most intuitive, easy to use, motorcycle communication systems”, says Dr. Abraham Glezerman – Cardo’s founder and CEO. “The new PACKTALK BOLD and PACKTALK SLIM leverage the most natural and basic user interface – the rider’s own natural voice. With it, motorcyclists can now enjoy the journey without having to lift a finger or to think which button to press or what wheel to turn. Tell it what you want, and it will do the rest. Just say Hey Cardo…

On top of PACKTALK BOLD & PACKTALK SLIM, Cardo also unveils Cardo Connect™, a brand-new minimalistic and intuitive mobile app for setting and controlling the company’s entire FREECOM and PACKTALK line of devices on the road.

Using natural language commands and the all-new Cardo Assistant App, riders will use the PACKTALK BOLD and the PACKTALK SLIM without having to touch any button and without removing a hand from the handlebar. In addition, both new devices employ Cardo’s unique Dynamic Mesh Communication™ (DMC) technology, enabling them to connect up to 15 riders with the same ease of connecting just two. Unlike with Bluetooth, DMC-powered devices are all interconnected, thus allowing a group of riders to seamlessly join, leave or change positions at a distance of up to 8 km without causing a breakdown of communications. With noise filtering, the rider’s voice always comes through crisp and clear while the self-healing network constantly self-adjusts in split seconds, keeping everyone automatically connected.

“DMC, a groundbreaking technology, first introduced by Cardo in 2015, changed the world of motorcycle group riding forever with real-time instant communication and zero intercom delay. Now DMC is being put on steroids and becoming even more powerful, with smoothly activated natural vocal commands”, says Dr. Glezerman.
