Kia to unveil new tech with interactive ‘Space of Emotive Driving’ exhibit at CES 2019.

Kia Motors is previewing a range of new technologies developed for the post-autonomous driving era at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2019 that will be held in Las Vegas from 8th to 11th January. Based on the ‘Space of Emotive Driving’ vision at CES 2019 is Kia’s new Real-time Emotion Adaptive Driving (R.E.A.D.) System – an emotional AI-based optimised and interactive in-cabin space centered on human senses.

The R.E.A.D. System can optimise and personalise a vehicle cabin space by analysing the driver’s emotional state in real-time through AI-based bio-signal recognition. It monitors a driver’s emotional state using sensors to read facial expressions, heart rate and electrodermal activity. Then it tailors the interior environment according to its assessment. AI tech enables the system to establish a baseline in user behavior and then identify patterns and trends to customise the cabin accordingly.

V-Touch a virtual touch-type gesture control technology will be revealed as well. It features a 3D camera to monitor users' eyes and fingertip, allowing occupants to manage several in-car features via an unobtrusive head-up display. Through finger gestures, all vehicle occupants can make changes to the cabin environment, including lighting, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning and entertainment systems, eliminating the need for buttons or touch screen.
