Expressive car expresses emotions and communicates with humans.
An expressive car has been built with the capability to express its intentions/emotions to human, to communicate with pedestrians and other drivers and even to see the people around it. With working eye-headlights, micro-speakers, including a Microsoft Kinect game sensor it can identify people around it and could let you know it’s seeing you by dillating its’s eyes or by projecting a smiley face on its windscreen.
Nicholas Pennycooke of the MIT Media Lab believes the car will be very user-friendly and can even be programmed not to hit anybody no matter what happens. In a presentation at the Media Labs Spring meeting held in Massachussetts, Nicholas was able to show what the car might look like and he admits the project is going to require a lot of testings with the sensors and other componemts that will make up the expressive car.
Although it was a prototype of the expressive car that was presented, with such brillance there is every probability that in the next couple of years our roads might just be filled with driverless/automatic cars with ears , eyes and other body parts like human.
Eventhough Pennycooke admits there is still a lot of work to be done, this is probably a piece of what future vehicles will look like.
‘We see this as a jumping-off point for others..’ Pennycooke said. But do you really see this prototype vehicle becoming a reality like other legendary inventions invented before it? Or do you think this is just some other project that will be dumped within some few years to come? Anyway, feel free to share your ideas, opinions and suggestions in the comment boxes below. I will be glad to read what you have to say about this. Below is a picture of the prototype of the expressive car:
