JLR to develop new AI technology to understand changes in driver’s mood

Remaining true to its lineage the new 8-speed automatic F Type can go from 0-100kmph in 5.7 seconds and boasts a top speed of 250kmph

Personalisation settings may include changing ambient lighting to calming colours if the system detects the driver is under stress, selecting a favourite playlist if signs of weariness are identified, and lowering the cabin temperature in response to yawning and other signs of tiring.

British vehicle manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover is working on artificial intelligence (AI) that is able to detect the driver's mood and adjust the car's environment to reduce stress.

The new mood-detection system is one of a suite of technologies that Jaguar Land Rover is exploring as part of its "tranquil sanctuary" vision to improve the driving experience.

The mood detection system technology uses a driver-facing camera and biometric sensing to monitor and evaluate the driver's mood. If the technology detects that you're bored, it will automatically play your favorite podcast or song.

Jaguar Land Rover recently confirmed that it is to build a range of electric cars in the United Kingdom, safeguarding thousands of jobs and delivering a huge boost to the industry after a series of setbacks in recent months.

Jaguar also hopes to personalise individual driving experiences, through artificial intelligence noticing when a person is starting to show signs of being exhausted, and so responds by playing a suitable playlist and/or lowering the temperature. Over time it will "learn" to recognise the tiniest of changes in how you're feeling and will change elements such as music and temperature to make you feel better. A camera will be attached to the rear headsets which can also detect tiredness and responds in a similar way to the front seats through changing temperatures, dimming the lighting and tinting the windows to help with sleep.

Already many marques have software in their everyday models capable of monitoring and alerting you to the danger that the way the auto is being driven indicates you are driving while drowsy.

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) is researching for new artificial intelligence (AI) technology to understand driver's state of mind while driving - and adjust cabin settings to improve driver wellbeing.

He adds that thanks to advances in research around personal well-being over the last 10 or 15 years, vehicle makers can strive with greater success to keep drivers "engaged and alert behind the wheel in all driving scenario".
