Abstract: Recent years have witnessed a fast growth in automobile sector, leading to increased urge for an intelligent man machine interaction system for navigation. This paper describes the development and implementation of an intelligent speech agent based navigation system and distance to empty (DTE) calculation for autonomous land vehicle applications. This system, initially determines the current location using Global Positioning System (GPS). The GPS outputs NMEA (National Marine Electronics Association) sentence that contains information about current location including longitude and latitude. The input to the system i.e. the desired destination is through voice command and outputs the following-(i) the road distance and the amount of fuel required, through speech, (ii)the altitude difference between the current location and the destination, which is further used to calculate the mileage variation with altitude and (iii) displays the route from the current location to the destination on a map along with the prediction whether the user will be able to reach the desired destination with fuel left in the automobile, how much distance it can travel with the remaining fuel and how much additional fuel is required to be filled up to reach the destination.
