Our vehicles are getting smarter all the time. In the future, they will drive themselves. Kia’s Real-time Emotion Adaptive Driving (R.E.A.D.) System aims to take it to the next level. It can optimize and personalize a vehicle cabin space by analyzing the driver’s emotional state in real-time. As the company explains:
The R.E.A.D. System can optimize and personalize a vehicle cabin space by analyzing a driver’s emotional state in real-time through AI-based bio-signal recognition technology. The technology monitors a driver’s emotional state using sensors to read their facial expressions, heart rate and electrodermal activity. It then tailors the interior environment according to its assessment – potentially altering conditions relating to the five senses within the cabin, creating a more joyful mobility experience. AI deep-learning technology enables the system to establish a baseline in user behavior, and then identify patterns and trends to customize the cabin accordingly
The system also has music-response vibration seats to let passengers feel their favorite songs. You will be able to catch it at CES.
