GM has announced OnStar Go, OnStar Go, the world's first cognitive mobility platform.
(CCM) — On Wednesday, GM and IBM introduced "the world's first cognitive mobility platform," called OnStar Go. The platform, announced in a press release, will integrate GM's leading vehicle connectivity and data capabilities via OnStar and IBM Watson's ability to learn a user's preferences. This will allow drivers to connect and interact with their favorite brands — including iHeartRadio, ExxonMobil, and MasterCard — and receive personalized content within their cars. It also strives to make drivers' vehicles safer and more efficient, including helping them to avoid traffic when they are low on fuel or order a cup of coffee while driving.
"IBM and GM are changing the whole notion of where valuable, daily rituals occur. The combination of IBM Watson and industry-leading OnStar connectivity will enable vehicles with intelligent branded skills and services to empower drivers and passengers," said Paul Papas, Global Leader at IBM iX. "Simply put, OnStar Go with IBM Watson transforms time wasted in the car into time well spent." OnStar Go is expected to be integrated in more than two million 4G/LTE-connected vehicles as well as millions of GM app-enabled mobile devices in the U.S. by the end of 2017.
