Have you ever thought of driving a car with a companion, who can always read and respond to your mood? The AIDA concept (Affective Intelligent Driving Agent) will surely make the driving experience more enjoyable and will lead to better and safer drivers.This smart technology is a result of cooperation between Volkswagen and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. AIDA has its own set of facial expressions, to help it establish an emotional bond with the driver. Developers claim, that this personal robot in your car and an intelligent navigation system will bring a more pleasant driving experience: it can learn the driver’s habits and needs by combining behavioural data with real-time feeds from onboard systems and the web.
