Artificial Intelligence is utilized to optimize automobile functions, elevating vehicles and augmenting user safety.
With the robust advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in recent times, it is unsurprising that its widespread application is evident in various industries, including the automotive sector. AI is not only utilized in the design and manufacturing processes but also in the functionalities of automobiles, predominantly electric vehicles, to augment their capabilities and elevate safety measures for users.
So, how can Artificial Intelligence be used to “level up” your car?
- Upgrading an automobile with a Voice Assistant System.
The Voice Assistant System is a tool that is commonly utilized by individuals and can be found in a majority of smartphones. It facilitates the execution of voice commands for conducting searches and obtaining information via voice synthesis.
In the realm of automobiles, the Voice Assistant System affords users a hands-free experience. This is evidenced by their ability to initiate phone calls, manage music, and navigate the vehicle without necessitating any physical contact.
It can be asserted that through daily enhancements and advancements, the Voice Assistant System will evolve into an essential convenience for automobiles and a multitude of users. Accordingly, 72% of automotive executives contend that voice assistants are pivotal for customer acquisition and business strategies, and 60% of those who have used voice assistants while driving consider the presence of integrated voice assistants in cars when making purchasing decisions. This presents a challenge for enterprises to adopt this contemporary feature to allure customers expeditiously.
- Improve your car with a Blind-Spot Monitor
All vehicles have blind spots. These areas, which are situated on the sides of the vehicle and are invisible to the driver when relying solely on the rearview mirror, have been known to cause a number of regrettable incidents while navigating through traffic. To minimize the number of accidents and enhance the driver’s ability to perceive objects within these blind spots, various enterprises have begun installing Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) systems, also known as blind spot warning, blind spot detection, or blind spot information system, in their vehicles. By utilizing sensors, radar, cameras, or infrared technology, the BSM can detect and warn the driver about the presence of objects in the unseen area.
This notification is typically conveyed through an audio or light signal, and some systems even also feature a visual display that allows the driver to see the exact position of objects in the blind spot.
- Ensure safety with the Driver Monitoring System
Every year, 1.3 million people around the world die in traffic accidents, with 60% of them resulting from driver negligence and 20% caused by lack of alertness while driving. These figures present an alarming and perilous level of risk, which necessitates a solution to mitigate this issue.
To address the growing need for improving driver safety, various businesses have introduced the Driver Monitoring System (DMS), also referred to as the In-cabin Monitoring System. DMS utilizes sensors to analyze the driver’s level of attentiveness and concentration, issuing warnings when the driver displays signs of distraction such as fatigue, mobile device use, eating, or smoking while operating the vehicle. As conventional safety measures for drivers become less effective, these advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) technologies are poised to significantly reduce fatal vehicular accidents.
Currently, there are numerous car manufacturers across the globe who have and continue to employ these artificial intelligence products with a view to furnishing a driving experience that is not only more convenient but also safer. Among them, advanced technology and compatibility with various car models are the top two criteria when choosing any artificial intelligence solution.
