In the past two years, there have been several reports linking Xiaomi to the automotive industry. However, the most likely scenario suggests that Xiaomi will not be directly involved with the automotive industry, but will work with existing companies in the field. The supremacy of "smart" cars has forced many automakers to work with technology companies in the field of Artificial Intelligence, linking cars to other industries. The ultimate goal of all is to offer better experiences to its customers. According to the latest news, XiaoAi, Xiaomi's digital voice assistant, will find its way to a car soon.
Today, Xiaomi Group has signed a strategic agreement with FAW Car Co., Ltd. Cui Baoqiu, vice president of Xiaomi Artificial Intelligence and Cloud Platform, was present at the signing event. According to the official launch, Xiaomi will now work with FAW on a deep collaboration in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, Smart Devices and the Internet of Things.
XiaoAi will enable "smart" cars and provide users with a better and smarter driving experience. For now, Xiao Ai has gained space in Xiaomi mobile phones, as well as in its IoT devices. This collaboration with car manufacturers will further expand the application areas of XiaoAi.
