Smart car

:" This article is about automobiles with artificial intelligence. For the Daimler AG smart Car see Smart (automobile)"

A smart car is an automobile with artificial intelligence (or "AI") functionality. As automation technology has progressed, especially in the decades after the invention of the integrated circuit, more and more functions have been added to automobiles, relieving the driver of much of the moment-to-moment decision making that may be regarded as having made driving tedious.

Examples of smart cars

The fictional car KITT in the television series "Knight Rider" is the archetypal smart car. A number of real-life vehicles have been designed, built and sold commercially that incorporate AI technology such as the Mercedes-Benz "Robot Cars" which have led to the development of the S-Class, a series of vehicles that are generally seen as an industry leader in new technology. For example, the radar-controlled braking system known as Brake Assist Plus and the intelligent cruise control function (see "Autonomous Cruise Control System"). A similar production example is the Lexus LS, with its object recognition pre-collision systems, self-steering "Lane Keep Assist", and automated parking systems.

Intelligent car

The European Commission has established a smart car development program called the "Intelligent Car Flagship Initiative". [ [ IHS Automotive News, February 23, 2006, accessed October 9, 2006] ] The goals of that program include:

* Autonomous Cruise Control
* Lane departure warning system
* Project AWAKE for drowsy drivers

Examples of 'smart' features

* Intelligent speed adaptation
* Computerised engine management systems
* Anti-lock braking systems and Traction Control
* Position monitoring system ESITrack
* Satellite monitoring systems, such as OnStar
* Platoon and car-train features
* Driverless car which may result in less-stressed "drivers", higher efficiency (the driver can do something else), increased safety and less pollution (e.g. via completely automated fuel control)
* "Advanced Parking Guidance System", Lexus automatic parking feature

ee also

* Car safety
* Intelligent Transportation System
