Outlander PHEV S Edition

1. AI Personal Assistant

The onboard AI Personal Assistant employs AI and connected car technologies to deeply understand the passengers and to develop with them in delivering the most appropriate kind of information to make the car trip as safe and reassuring as possible, as well as in supporting communication between the driver and family members.

AI Personal Assistant mainly offers the following functions:

1) Voice-operation

AI Personal Assistant uses the latest AI technology (speech recognition and natural language processing) to correctly understand passengers' speech and to converse with them using natural-sounding language even amid the noise generated when the car is on the move. Voiceprint identification and a camera allow it to identify individual passengers, to learn about them from their conversation and movements, and to provide services that best match their tastes and needs. AI Personal Assistant also features the hybrid speech recognition system that combines cloud speech recognition (AI-based speech recognition via cloud) and local speech recognition (AI-based speech recognition via onboard system). The local system provides speech recognition accuracy equivalent to the cloud system with a lower latency even in an environment where there is no network connection.

2) Context recognition

AI Personal Assistant uses speech recognition technology and gesture recognition technology to recognize the driver's intentions and states (actions, emotions(1), drowsiness, concentration, identification, etc.). Based on this recognition, it provides appropriate information at suitable times.

3) Connectivity with diverse device and content

AI Personal Assistant supports connectivity with various devices and contents. For example, it can connect with Pepper the personal robot by Softbank Robotics Corp. in one's living room to enable remote operation of the vehicle's air conditioning; check the vehicle's gasoline level, door lock status, etc.; and communicate with household members for a glimpse of what robots will offer in the future.

2. MMC Genuine Android Auto(2) Compatible App

The MMC booth will also feature demonstrations of its Android Auto compatible app "EV Support," which enables a driver to search for EV charging spots via in-car display. MMC is the first automaker to distribute a genuine Android Auto compatible app(3).

Other attractions include: Smart Door Bell (beta version) which connects with the home doorbell over the Internet and allows passengers to check on and communicate with visitors to their home while the vehicle is on the move; and Driving Data Recorder (beta version) which uses a compact camera to record steering angle, vehicle speed, and other vehicle information to offer a new way to enjoy car trips.

(1) The emotions of vehicles are recognized through an emotion engine developed by cocoro SB Corp. using AI technology. The emotions of passengers are recognized through ST voice and emotion recognition technology developed by AGI Corp.
(2) Android Auto is a registered trademark of Google Inc.
(3) In-house research

About Mitsubishi Motors

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation is the fifth largest automaker in Japan and the fifteenth largest in the world by global unit sales. It is part of the Mitsubishi keiretsu, formerly the biggest industrial group in Japan, and was formed in 1970 from the automotive division of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.

Throughout its history it has courted alliances with foreign partners, a strategy pioneered by their first president Tomio Kubo to encourage expansion, and continued by his successors. A significant stake was sold to Chrysler Corporation in 1971 which it held for 22 years, while DaimlerChrysler was a controlling shareholder between 2000 and 2005. Long term joint manufacturing and technology licencing deals with the Hyundai Motor Company in South Korea and Proton in Malaysia were also forged, while in Europe the company co-owned the largest automobile manufacturing plant in the Netherlands with Volvo for ten years in the 1990s, before taking sole ownership in 2001.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
