BMW have revealed their new Intelligent Personal Assistant. From March 2019, their new cars will be offered with a digital character who responds to “Hey, BMW”.
BMW claim that the new system they will be implementing will revolutionize driving pleasure. With the help of the new digital assistant, drivers will be able to operate the car and access their functions simply by speaking. It will also help the owner outside their vehicles, whether at home with the help of a smart speaker or via the owner’s smartphone. Its capabilities are continuously developing courtesy of BMW’s Open Mobility Cloud and the use of artificial intelligence.
BMW’s Intelligent Personal Assistant will learn routines and habits and will subsequently be able to apply them, learning the driver’s preferences and becoming familiar with their settings. It will not only await the driver’s command but will also make casual conversation.
It will be available in a basic version in 23 languages and markets from 2019, being offered in all models featuring BMW Operating System 7.0: the new 3 Series from November 2018, and from March 2019, the new X5, Z4, and 8 Series models.
