Even if there is the name of its MI, it has nothing to do with smartphone manufacturers from China. MI Assistant is a voice recognition system that will help us in interacting with our vehicles, in short like Apple Siri but for cars. The system we try to be responsive with our English is simple, for example when in the car we say that "I'm hungry" the MI system immediately replied that there are 5 good Japanese restaurants around our location.
Another example, when we say "I'm cold", the system will automatically offer to lower the AC temperature and shrink the fan to make us more comfortable. Sophisticated right? Unfortunately the system is still in the testing phase, so it can only respond to requests or statements in English only, perhaps in the future will be created with the local language system of each region where the car was sold. If it is so we can say to our car "Hungry ya, want to eat Pecel", then the system will respond "Want Pecel what? pecel ayam or pecel catfish? around here there is a delicious Chicken Pecel loh ".
The second system presented is the Driver Monitoring System that will read our faces while driving, and will detect while warning when we are not paying attention to roads, drowsiness or sidetrack. This system will commemorate us with sounds, vibrations, and even stop the vehicle to a safe location in case of undesirable conditions. When combined with MI Assistant, the system can reprimand us and advise us to the nearest coffee shop for a while if we are considered sleepy while driving.
