AI and Automtive: German Autolabs Brings Artifcial Intelligence to Every Car

AI and Automtive: Most new cars are equipped with intelligent systems that allow drivers to control their smartphones or make phone calls while driving. But drivers of older models often hold the phones in their hands or tap at them while behind the steering wheel – behavior that often leads to terrible accidents. The technology startup German Autolabs has developed a solution: They call Chris the world’s first digital co-driver with artificial intelligence. The elegantly designed device will integrate with any car. It offers entertainment, connectivity, and navigation capabilities that are more convenient and proactive than other market offerings. Holger Weiss, CEO of German Autolabs, said,

While automotive manufacturers like Tesla, Lexus, Audi, and BMW pursue building connected vehicles over the next several years, consumer demand for AI-enabled technology is rapidly on the rise today. Drivers and passengers can have this AI-powered technology at their disposal now, and with a low barrier to entry both in installation and cost. Chris works in every car, regardless of the age or model.

Drivers can attach Chris to their windshields or dashboards and connect it with their smartphones via Bluetooth – iOS and Android versions are available. The device enables drivers to send and reply to messages or emails, listen to streamed music, get trafc updates and navigation instructions, and make and receive phone calls using speech and gesture recognition technology on a full-color screen display.

As Chris is specifcally designed for cars, it offers a human-centric user experience that proactively communicates with the driver. Powered by AI and NLP (natural language processing) technologies, it makes drivers feel like they have a human navigator at their sides. Chris will be available for a price of €200.
