Audi has announced a new concept car, the AI: ME concept, as the "third living space" that extends beyond the area of cars to the home and work. Users can use the eye tracking feature to communicate with the car, for example, to order their favorite food. A wellness experience is also provided, and wearing onboard VR goggles allows you to enjoy virtual flights in magnificent mountain scenery.
The car understands users and their habits and combines artificial intelligence and intelligent features to enhance the safety, health and comfort of the occupants. The self-learning navigation system is already built into the current MMI system, saves destination data, and proposes recommended routes considering date, time and current traffic conditions. In the future, it will be able to perform detailed analysis on user-preferred functions and settings, from seat position, media, route guidance, car temperature to fragrance.
The 3D mixed reality head-up display, jointly developed with Samsung Electronics, eliminates the need to refocus the eyes to see the image, even when traveling far away. A further highlight is the transparent display that operates on demand. The screen is 15 cm long and 122 cm wide, with the lower end embedded in the instrument panel. It has a two-layer structure of a transparent organic EL display and a black layer that expresses dark black in particular, and the parts that are not necessary for displaying information remain transparent. It is a feature.
Like the current Audi model, it has the highest network performance. When the driver begins to feel tired, it is illuminated with cool bluish white lights that can be stimulating and refreshing. Audi's project "Human Centric Lighting" shows that lighting colors can be used, for example, to increase occupant concentration and memory.
The vehicles on display at the Audi booth at CES will be installed in the spring of 2020 from the Audi Q4 e-tron concept, a show model similar to a commercial car with a 12.3-inch touch screen, as well as AI: ME. Audi e-tron Sportback equipped with digital matrix LED headlights, and has created a wide range of Audi futures.
