Softbank and Honda to develop friendly cars using AI

|21 July 2016|

Car maker Honda is teaming up with electronics giant Softbank to work on artificial intelligence (AI).

The pair have confirmed they will develop an innovative range of products, which use sensors and cameras to improve the breadth and depth of communication possible between car and driver.

Soft bank’s pionerering Pepper robot was designed to live with humans and the company will now work with Honda through its robotics unit – Cocoro SB – to create products that give drivers a feeling of ‘friendship’ with their cars.

Honda is opening a new AI laboratory in Tokyo in September as it continues its investment in the future of robotics.
