BMW has announced that it is launching its own AI powered digitial assistant, the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant.
The BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant is coming to new BMW cars from March 2019, you will be able to say ‘hey BMW’ and then use the assistant with voice commands.
The arrival of the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant ensures there is always a genuine BMW professional on board. He is able to explain all sorts of different functions (“How does the High Beam Assistant work?”), provide current status information (“Is the oil level okay?”) and help answer questions (“What warning messages do I have?”). He knows the driver’s favourite settings, and can even activate a combination of them to enhance well-being. For instance, “Hey BMW, I feel tired” triggers a vitality programme that adjusts the lighting mood, music and temperature, among other things, in order to make the driver feel more awake. In future, the assistant will also be able to give fuel-saving driving tips or think ahead and warn drivers as necessary. He could alert the driver to problems (“Tyre pressure is low”), for example, remind the driver of service appointments and even arrange an appointment.
