Intelligent steering wheel
JAGUAR Land Rover has shown its idea of the future steering wheel, called Sayer.
Sayer is the first voice-activated artificial intelligence (AI) steering wheel that will be able to carry out hundreds of tasks.
A sculpted piece of functional art, “like every Jaguar Land Rover product” according to a statement, Sayer owes its name to one of the most prominent designers from Jaguar’s past, Malcolm Sayer, who worked for the British marque between 1951 and 1970. It will be displayed at the inaugural Tech Fest at Central St Martins art, design and technology college in London, UK.
Jaguar said in a statement the Sayer steering wheel “lives in your home and becomes your trusted companion”. To order a car for the next day, a driver simply asks Sayer to do so and the networked device will work out when a car needs to autonomously arrive and even advise which parts of the journey you might enjoy driving yourself.
