Earlier this year, organisers of the LA Show announced their annual challenge for carmakers to design a futuristic concept, with this year’s theme being ‘how will cars and humans interact in 2029’?
Qoros set to work and came up with the Q concept, or to use its full name - Q: QorosQloud Qubed.
The Chinese carmaker says the Q represents the ‘next step’ in connected driving; far removed from the desires of today’s driver which mainly concern functions from their mobile phone and forms of social media.
As autonomous cars will likely be here in full by 2029, the Q is programed to learn the driver’s preferences and respond to them.
Hungry, and in a foreign town? The Q will seek out your favourite cuisine and take you there - perhaps without even asking first.
“[The Q] conceives an intelligent, multi-dimensional personal management assistant,” Qoros said.
“[It] will learn from the driver over a period of time through the five senses, with the dynamics of the vehicle/driver relationship modelled in much the same way as a human relationship, developing and growing over time.”
If you like the Q, or any of the other efforts from this year’s LA Auto Show challenge, you can vote for them on the Show’s Facebook page. Voting closes next week.
