AI applications help companies in the automotive industry to develop new offers and approaches. Because whether in production, service, sales, or marketing: the data forms the foundation for new, digital business processes.

What does it mean to have AI in cars?

Strictly speaking, there is no artificial intelligence with a kind of artificial brain in machines. True intelligence means, among other things, the formation of one’s consciousness. Machines can’t do that.

When we talk of AI, this means a sub-area of ​​computer science that deals with machine learning. In general parlance, AI has established itself wherever computers solve increasingly complex tasks and provide the correct answers. In cars, these are currently speech computers and navigation systems. Instead of AI, one can also speak of machine learning or deep learning. Computer specialists develop programs to train cognitive abilities in car computers. This includes seeing, hearing, and making its own plans.

utomated driving for all

Artificial intelligence is the most crucial factor when it comes to automated driving. In the future, robot cars will have to decide how to drive and, above all, how to react in certain situations. 

Should they brake or swerve in front of an obstacle? If a pedestrian steps onto the street at a zebra crossing, the car with its artificial intelligence has to recognize immediately – ideally beforehand – that the pedestrian wants to cross the road – and brake to a standstill.

But artificial intelligence is already being used in conventional, i.e., non-self-driving cars. With systems such as voice control, entertainment, or navigation systems, AI already supports the driver today, such as the MBUX system from Mercedes. The program can remember what day and time a car driver calls a specific person or drives a particular route. It then suggests the phone number or the street to the driver. 

Natural speech recognition for infotainment control and image recognition for automatic traffic sign recognition, used in driver assistance systems, are also based on AI.

Autonomous driving is just one area where AI is expected to be used in the future. Other areas of application: In addition to improved voice and gesture control for operating the car, assistance systems should be able to work more thoroughly with AI. The Chinese manufacturer Byton is planning a vehicle unlocking system using facial recognition. Intelligent cockpits should use cameras to recognize which switches and buttons the driver wants to press next and then display them. The dashboard becomes switchless and tidier.

Can cars go to school? 

Today’s vehicles are real nerds. Thanks to artificial intelligence, they calculate three times faster than humans. Let’s learn how AI makes the automotive industry more convenient and safer.

The future car will independently understand its environment and react correctly with AI-powered car computers. It will link all the information it collects and then decides. It will learn to use the stored automotive data to predict how a situation will develop. For example, if a ball rolls onto the street between parked cars, a child could run after it—the car brakes as a precaution. 

Every car with an AI car computer will collect new data, for example, about
