Voice Assistant is bringing change. Such voice assistants are entering our car.
On Monday, South Korean car maker Kia announced at 2018 CES that it would integrate Google assistants in a variety of models of infotainment systems, including Niro plug-in hybrids, Soul electric vehicles, Optima inserts Electric hybrid car, and K900.
Kia's current system, UVO, helps users do simple tasks such as remotely checking vehicle charge status from the phone and connecting Apple's hands-free messaging capabilities to the system. These features are helpful.
Currently, using Google Assistant to set up UVO, drivers can "tell UVO" to do a variety of new operations such as voice commands to start a car, lock a car, and adjust air-conditioning settings. In addition, the usual Google Assistant features, such as answering easy questions, will also be integrated into the automotive system.
The big innovation here lies in the voice assistant itself - people usually ask personal assistants while driving - questioning the fact that Kia integrates one of the hottest intelligence aides in the world into a car.
This is not an important solution to the practical problems facing mankind. However, this represents an emerging trend: smart assistants are being used in many different ways on more occasions.
At present, Apple, Amazon and Google's smart assistant software is more and more powerful, but still not mature enough. These aides can visit the web to answer simple questions, but still can not understand human needs.
