Honda’s Newest Concept Car Will Be Able To Feel Human Emotions
The new design means that having a conversation with your car could soon be a reality
Whether it’s their dog or their car, people love anthropomorphizing things they love. Films such as Pixar’s Cars and Herbie the Love Bug, along with the 80s TV classic Knight Rider, all demonstrate our fascination with having emotional interactions with cars. Well, car manufacturer Honda is bringing this concept to life with a vehicle that can feel human emotions. Coined the NeuV, the vehicle is set to be unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas early next year.
The NeuV will use artificial intelligence, robotics and big data to power conversations with the driver and garner information from various sensors and cameras to perceive the driver’s emotions and engage with them in a responsive manner. Additionally, the car will be able to assist drivers by physically taking over as driver of the car, making long or late night trips safer.
