Besides improving safety, AI-based features can provide a better overall driving experience. For example, navigation systems incorporate data such as real-time weather and traffic conditions to optimally guide the driver to the desired destination with as little hassle as possible. Similar data can be used as part of intelligent speed assistance, which can also support fuel efficiency by suggesting the ideal moments to accelerate/brake.
Some high-tech in-vehicle features are seemingly small improvements that can make a big difference in terms of driver comfort. AI technology not only saves personalised settings regarding seats and mirrors, for example, but also automatically adjusts them into the correct position when the relevant driver gets behind the wheel. And in today’s era of connectivity, AI-based smartphone apps can enable the driver to adjust the temperature inside the vehicle remotely before setting off – which can be a particular blessing on a cold winter’s morning or a hot summer’s afternoon.
