Honda: First Look at AI Powered Car that Can 'Exhibit Emotions'

Honda has released a teaser image of their new artificial intelligence powered electric car in anticipation for the 2017 Consumer Electric Show.

People finally have their first look at the electric car that both Honda and SoftBank collaborated on as published by Honda. The NeuV is of a silver color and looks to seat only two passengers (including the driver).

It is a commuter vehicle powered using an “emotion engine” which is what the artificial intelligence is called. In a press release back in July, it was said to be capable of perceiving the driver’s emotions, thus allowing conversation and dialogue.

This is made possible using information obtained from the many sensors and cameras that are installed in the automobile. The company further claims that the shared experiences between the vehicle and driver will allow for growth and form a stronger bond and attachment between the two.

Thus, this mobility product will redefine the relationship and the interaction between driver and car as well as introducing a new value for customers. With that in mind, it is sure to provide an intimate ride—it is akin to having something like Iron Man Tony Stark’s J.A.R.V.I.S. or F.R.I.D.A.Y. in the vehicle assisting you and keeping you company.

The Consumer Electric Show, which is where the NeuV will be showcased, will be held in Las Vegas from January 5 to January 8, 2017. Honda will be present on the first day at the LVCC, North Hall – 7312 starting with a press conference at 11:00 AM PST and a keynote address from the President and CEO of Honda R&D Co., Ltd. Yoshiyuki Matsumoto.

The theme of the company’s participation in the show is “Cooperative Mobility Ecosystem” and will involve them showcasing how mobility experience is transformed using robotics, artificial intelligence, and big data.

Honda assures that visitors will be able to explore the possibilities of how new technology can make improve and better lives "from reducing traffic congestion to creating new modes of in-car connectivity."
