Japanese Mitsubishi has given an advance of the concept to be presented at the Tokyo Motor Show on October 25: the e-Evolution Concept. The brain of the SUV is an Artificial Intelligence (AI) system that can instantly read changes in road conditions and traffic, as well as driver intent.
The concept, with three electric motors, has a special "coaching" function that allows the AI system to transfer knowledge to the driver. The Japanese manufacturer has stated that it will not get to build it, but that the technology will be adopted by the production vehicles that Mitsubishi wants to launch to the market from 2020.
According to Mitsubishi, the e-Evolution Concept uses performance engines supplied by a high capacity battery system, which offer the "smooth and powerful performance that distinguishes electric versus internal combustion vehicles." As for the outside, the truth is that at first glance, it seems that they have worked well in aerodynamics.
The 4WD system uses a single motor to drive the front wheels while the new Dual Motor AYC system couples two rear motors through an active yaw control unit (which reports the degree of vehicle rotation, or AYC) managed electronically .
The vehicle also has a "coaching" function that allows the Artificial Intelligence system to transfer knowledge to the driver and improve with the driving experience. How? After building an image of the driver's skill level, the system devises a training program that provides advice through voice dialogue and a large dashboard display.
As a result, drivers, regardless of their level at the wheel, quickly experience how the vehicle behaves in the way they want. Something like the applications that nowadays monitor the way you drive either to improve it or to set the prices of insurance.
The prototype also features a personal assistant system that provides a dialogue system that uses voice recognition and natural language processing, which allows passengers to be identified individually, learn from them based on their language and behavior, and provide the services they need. best suit your tastes and needs.
The personal assistant also promises to operate voice control functions such as climate control, wipers or lights and supports connectivity with a wide variety of devices. We will see this Mitbubishi bet at the Tokyo Motor Show next to the Eclipse Cross SUV.
