General Motors (GM) introduced the world’s first affordable long range electric vehicle (EV) — the Chevrolet Volt. At the first-ever, GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra presented the official opening keynote, putting on display a new generation of EVs that are set to inspire drivers and accelerate the transition to a net zero carbon future.
The key to unlock that vision is electrification. The electrification of global transportation can help reduce emissions and power the advanced systems and connectivity between vehicles and transportation infrastructure to help reduce congestion and crashes.
The path toward this goal is encouraging the adoption of EVs and electrification. For GM, this means placing an emphasis on creating vehicles and in-car services that can personalize the driving experience and meet consumer desires.
GM expects that its vertical takeoff and landing drones concepts can revolutionize personal air travel and represent personal aerial luxury in the near future. Team also see an opportunity where delivery and logistics could contribute to an all-electric future that better meets evolving consumer expectations and lifestyles.
BrightDrop is a connected ecosystem of smart products that can reduce vehicles and environmental impact while meeting growing delivery needs, partnering with FedEx, for example, to increase safety and security of delivery while sending out more packages per day. Reliable logistics provided by solutions such as BrightDrop can help carriers ship vital items such as COVID-19 vaccine doses in a timely manner.
GM'S FOCUS ON TWO MAJOR AREAS:
GM has partnered with Honda Motor Co. to jointly develop two new electric vehicles and collaborate on electric vehicle research and development. The exteriors and interiors of the cars will be designed by Honda and will include GM’s batteries.
Technology augmentation in cars now ranges from simple entertainment and voice control to almost full self-driving capabilities.
Mindtronic developing a driver’s cockpit that interacts with the driver at every moment.
AI as vehicle technology has the potential to further redefine driver safety and the driving experience. Processing mass amounts of data through biometric systems such as Mindtronic AI’s, AI is able to determine driver habits — lack of attention on one side, decreased comfort on highways and more — and adjust the autonomous system to keep the driver safe.
In much the same way it aids content discovery, AI can also offer recommendations for close-by coffee shops or better routes based on past stops or routes to enhance the user experience.
Mindtronic AI aimed to enhance driver safety in two ways:
Reducing Human-Machine Interface Complexity -
Mindtronic AI wanted to develop an advanced system that provides enhanced user experiences while keeping the driver safe. To achieve this new HMI, they focused on three main areas: Personalization, Gaze interaction, 3D animation.
Facial recognition and palm print recognition help personalize the driver and passenger experience through the same central panel, and a 3D multi-panel display and biometric-interactive system allows the driver to control devices and see the car functions through head tilts and smiles.
Improving ADAS to Adapt to Drivers -
Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) still often need human control to switch to self-driving abilities. When drivers are distracted or otherwise unexpectedly unable to drive, these ADAS systems cannot adapt to the situation.
In Mindtronic AI’s platform, a built-in artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled monitoring system tracks the driver’s fatigue levels and looks for signs of distraction or sudden illness, triggering an automatic transition to self-driving systems.
