Honda’s Vision of the Future Doesn’t Include Aerodynamics


Honda’s theme for the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) will be “Cooperative Mobility Ecosystem.”

The Japanese automaker will present the NeuV concept at next year’s CES, a seemingly boxy vehicle that couldn’t care less about being aerodynamic. The company said the concept is an automated EV commuter vehicle equipped with artificial intelligence (AI) called “emotion engine” that creates new possibilities for human interaction. If this is sounding a bit sci-fi or out of a Terminator movie, it might worry you to know that the emotion engine is a set of AI technologies developed by cocoro SB Corp., which enables machines to artificially generate their own emotions.
