Mitsubishi coaches you as you drive

Mitsubishi's e-Evolution concept vehicle promises to make you a better driver.

The new vehicle by the Japanese automotive manufacturer - which was unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show - has an artificial intelligence system built in that learns about the driver as well as takes notes about the road and traffic and feeds all that back through "coaching" to improve the driver's performance.

They shared on their website: "The brain of the Mitsubishi e-Evolution concept is an Artificial Intelligence (AI) system that augments the driver's capabilities. An array of sensors allows the AI system to instantly read changes in road and traffic conditions, as well as the driver's intent. Seamlessly coordinating driver intent with vehicle performance, the system supports drivers of all abilities. By making it easier and safer to control the vehicle, the motoring experience is brought to a new level.

"A special coaching function allows the AI system to transfer knowledge to the driver, and to unobtrusively enhance the driving expertise. After building a picture of the driver's skill level, the system constructs a training program that provides advice through voice dialogue and a large dashboard display. As a result, drivers of all abilities quickly experience a vehicle that behaves the way they want it, and soon they find themselves enjoying the driving experience to an even greater degree."

The coaching is displayed on one of three of the screens inside the car, where it also has details about navigation and the weather outside as well as both front and rear cameras.

They added: "A large flat screen spans the full width of the dashboard. It displays outside conditions, navigation and coaching information. The large screen is flanked by two smaller screens, showing images from front and rear cameras. Full-glass windows provide near unobstructed 360-degree visibility, for a feeling more akin to a jet fighter than a car."
