ChatGPT launched last year and took over the world as the most popular AI chatbot. Now, Stellantis-owned DS Automobiles has marked a new feat in this world of artificial intelligence by integrating ChatGPT with its vehicles. With this, DS Automobiles became the first car company to integrate AI chatbot commands into vehicles. Stellantis announced the achievement in a press release, while also pointing out the requirements needed to access the feature. Initially, ChatGPT will be offered to the first 20,000 registered users.
In a civil servant announcement, Stallantis revealed that DS Automobiles has integrated the ChatGPT AI chatbot with its vehicles, allowing users to get accurate and immediate responses. AI chatbot works in the same way as Alexa or Siri in cars. The company will initially begin with a pilot phase for the first six months, where it will provide access to 20,000 registered users.
These users should use the DS 3, DS 4, DS 7 and DS 9 car series with an active DS IRIS system on board. To use the feature and talk to the DS IRIS system, users simply say “OK IRIS” by pressing the special button on the steering wheel.
The integration of ChatGPT with the DS IRIS SYSTEM will be available at no extra cost to the first 20,000 registered users for six months if they make a purchase on the above range of cars between October 19 and February 29. To activate the system, users must be able to contact the DS Services Store. In the pilot phase, the integration will only be available in European regions, including France, Germany, the UK, Spain and Italy. The feature will be available in the national languages of all these countries.
To remember, ChatGPT AI chatbot launched in November last year. It is now available for use on mobile apps as well as web versions.
