Automakers have made their presence felt at the 2019 Mobile World Conference in Barcelona, introducing new tech and concepts for their vehicles.
BMW introduced its natural interaction system, which will allow drivers to use voice commands, gestures and eye contact to interact with their car. The system uses sensors and speech recognition in combination with a variety of algorithms to perform tasks like opening windows, adjusting air vents or performing tasks on the onboard computer. Drivers will also be able to ask questions about exterior objects.
The German automaker said the first phase of these functions will be available on the 2021 BMW iNext.
