A car that finally understands me and my moods

It has only taken years for any other person to figure out my moods, but Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) will soon have a car that will understand me almost immediately. FINALLY!!!!

JLR is researching new artificial intelligence technology to understand our state of mine while driving. This is so that the car can adjust certain things within the cabin to make your drive a more comfortable one. I know many people who would want this from their partners.

LET ME SHOW YOU WHAT I MEAN

How cool is that? The technology uses a driver-facing camera and biometric sensing to monitor and evaluate the driver’s mood and adapt a host of cabin features, including the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system, media and ambient lighting. The settings will be altered in response to the driver’s facial expressions to help tackle stress.

DON’T FEEL LEFT OUT PASSENGERS

Jaguar Land Rover is also trialing similar technology for rear passengers, with a camera mounted in the headrest. If the system detects signs of tiredness, it could dim the lights, tint the windows and raise the temperature in the back, to help an occupant get to sleep.

The new mood–detection system is one of a suite of technologies that Jaguar Land Rover is exploring as part of its ‘tranquil sanctuary’ vision to improve the driving experience. Designed to create a sanctuary inside each of its luxury vehicles, the manufacturer is trialing a wide range of driver and passenger wellbeing features, to ensure occupants are as comfortable as possible whilst ensuring the driver remains mindful, alert and in control.

TO THE FUTURE, I SAY

Mood-detection software is the next-generation of Jaguar Land Rover’s existing driver tracking technology. The Driver Condition Monitor, which is capable of detecting if a driver is starting to feel drowsy and will give an early warning to take a break, is available on all Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles.
