Artificial Intelligence: A new chapter in the future interaction between cars and humans


Last year when Mr.Anthony got rid of his old garbage truck by putting it up in the garbage truck for sale section, hardly had he thought that this garbage truck could be revamped with the latest advances in computer science and could open an additional revenue source for him. But alas! Only if, Mr.Anthony could have done a little research on vehicle interaction and AI, the situation today could have been very different.

Having said that if you too can relate to this loss of Mr. Anthony then, it’s high time that you acquaint yourself with the game-changing human-vehicle interaction brought by AI. Believed to be a branch of computer science, over time, the AI has evolved itself to develop a medium that facilitates communication between humans and vehicles.

Although initially, experts and scientists had perceived this interaction to be the distant future, the consistent efforts and years of research in labs has now transformed this distant future into a near reality.

Still finding it hard to trust a human-car interaction? Have a look at the core communication areas where AI is changing the dynamics of human-car interaction.

Accident Alerts: Almost all of us are familiar with the saying, “to err is to human.” But when its the question of your life, nothing beats the security provided by the AI. Its efficient system immediately provides an accident alert to the user by constantly monitoring the speed of the vehicle and its friction with the roads. Apart from this, the system is strong enough to deal with sudden road obstacles preventing any major accident.

Command Communication: While we already have concepts like Alexa and Google assistant accepting the commands of their users, if media reports are to be believed, soon the AI would open a new window in going beyond the command communication by evolving itself into an interactive medium.

Maintenance Reminder: Often the user tends to forget the periodic vehicle maintenance checks that ensure the longevity of vehicles. Perhaps, AI has solved this issue as well. The constant monitoring of AI sensors identifies the problem areas and provides a maintenance reminder for the user that not only facilitates an increased vehicle efficiency but also strengthens the fuel utilization capacity of the vehicle.

Traffic Diverts: AI facilitates the vehicles to communicate with each other. This vehicle-to-vehicle communication provides traffic insights to the user which ultimately enables the user to choose the alternative routes to their destination saving the time wasted in traffic.

While these are just the four core vehicle-human interaction spheres, AI is gradually evolving to connect humans with machines. It’s true that the issues like data privacy or system failures plague the use of AI. However, efforts for the elimination of these loopholes are already in progress. Perhaps, the chunks of progress are already evident in the small victories noticed through the optimum performance of these AI integrated vehicles during their testing phase.  

Besides, the AI is not limited to the new models of trucks or vehicles. If a user wishes, he can even revamp his old vehicle by integrating the traditional operating system with the modern AI system.

So, now we hope unlike Mr. Anthony, you will certainly make the smart decision of revamping the truck rather than just getting rid of it.
