SKODA is to integrate the AI-based chatbot ChatGPT into its Laura voice assistant system which will be capable of reading out content while on the move.
The new chatbot will be offered together with the latest generation of infotainment systems from mid-2024.
It will be available in selected versions of the Skoda Enyaq, the new-generation Superb and Kodiaq and the updated Octavia.
Enabled by Cerence Chat Pro, the integration of ChatGPT into the Laura voice assistant introduces a variety of new capabilities that go far beyond the previous voice commands.
Skoda says the Laura voice assistant can be used, for example, to control the infotainment, navigation and air conditioning and answer general knowledge questions.
In the future, AI will provide additional information in response to questions that go beyond this as part of its constantly growing capabilities.
The ChatGPT feature will also be available in further models of Volkswagen Group brands.
