New Delhi. From cars entering ChatGPAT to massive dashboard displays for streaming, gaming and autonomous driving, (future) cars have made an impressive advance at the global tech show in Las Vegas.
German automaker Volkswagen announced plans to bring AI chatbot ChatGPT to its cars, integrated into its IDA voice assistant.
The Serence Chat Pro-enabled voice assistant is activated by saying ‘Hello IDA’ or pressing a button on the steering wheel. IDA automatically prioritizes whether a vehicle function should be executed, a destination searched or the temperature adjusted.
If the request cannot be responded to by the Volkswagen system, it is forwarded anonymously to Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the familiar Volkswagen voice responds.
The automaker said during CES 2024 that ChatGPT does not gain access to any vehicle data and questions and answers are immediately deleted to ensure the highest possible level of data protection.
Automaker Volkswagen said it will be the first volume manufacturer to offer ChatGPT as standard features in multiple production vehicles from the second quarter of 2024.
The new chatbot has been introduced in conjunction with the latest generation infotainment in the following models ID.7, ID.4, ID.5, ID.3 in the all-new Tiguan and the all-new Fiat as well as in the new Golf. With ChatGPT, the iDA voice assistant can be used to control infotainment, navigation and air conditioning, or answer general knowledge questions.
In the future, AI will provide additional information in response to questions that go beyond this as part of its ever-expanding capabilities.
Sony showcased an upgraded EV prototype car called Afila. Developed by Sony Honda Mobility, the Afila is a concept electric vehicle with a massive dashboard display and autonomous driving capabilities.
The most surprising aspect of the car is a huge ultrawide dashboard screen, which extends the width of the car while packing another screen along the bumper.
A bumper screen called a media bar can display information such as warning signs, birthday greetings, and logos of popular movie and game titles.
The Afila has large side mirrors, wireless phone charger and a few more genuine car specifications. The all-wheel drive prototype has two 180kW motors (about 483 horsepower), a 91kWh lithium-ion battery pack and fast DC charging up to 150kW.
Electric car brand Polestar announced the integration of Google Built-In, a branded product that embeds Google apps and services directly into the company’s EVs.
Google Built-in product technology is powered by the company’s Android automotive operating system and integrates Google Automotive services directly into the vehicle.
As TechCrunch reports, Android Automotive OS is based on its open source mobile operating system that runs on Linux. The Polestar 2 and select Volvo cars are the first vehicles to get the new apps, which include access to YouTube, Amazon Prime Video as well as new features.
Bosch demonstrated two eye-tracking techniques while driving. One will notice that your eyes are tired and ask if you need an espresso when you get home. If so, its connected technology will tell your fancy machine to be at the ready.
The second is far more complex: eye-tracking technology can be used during your drive to detect which points of interest you’re looking at, and the car can provide relevant information.
