The new Byton SUV has a ridiculously large 48-inch dashboard. At CES, Byton shows that the M-Byte is not just a giant screen around which an electric car is wrapped. It’s also a huge screen with machine learning skills.
To solve all of these problems, the Chinese company Byton worked with the Voice AI company Aiqudo. The Voice-Tech will expand the car’s massive dashboard screen, as well as the screens in the steering wheel and in the back row.
Aiqudo’s platform understands voices in seven languages and can open apps, get directions, make calls, and even send money. The Byton screens use voice recognition to call up personalized playlists, favorite contacts and preferred apps for different drivers and passengers.
The main dashboard in the M-Byte is not a touchscreen, so voice output is an important tool for controlling and navigating through the screen options. The car also has gesture controls that let you move through apps, skip tracks, and control parts of the screen.
The all-electric M-byte SUV is expected to be available in the U.S. by 2021 at a starting price of $ 45,000. With its 72 kWh battery, it has a range of more than 300 kilometers.
