Kia to unveil future autonomous car that can read a passenger’s emotions

As autonomous cars of the future take care of the work of driving and drivers increasingly become passengers, the cabin will become a place that’s more important than ever. To keep pace with this changing trend, Kia Motors has developed a new in-car technology that is able to assess the emotional state of an occupant and optimize and personalize the cabin space to improve their experience.

Set to be unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January, Kia’s Real-time Emotion Adaptive Driving (READ) system is said to be the motoring industry’s first technology that uses artificial intelligence-based bio-signal recognition technology to analyze and monitor a passenger and change the cabin environment with settings which can play upon human senses.
