Volkswagen Introduces AI Lab for Prototyping of Vehicle Technologies
Volkswagen Group has recently unveiled its latest venture, the “AI Lab,” a cutting-edge artificial intelligence company geared towards forging collaborative ties within the technology sector across Europe, North America, and China. The primary objective of AI Lab is to establish strategic partnerships with leading tech entities and pioneer the development of digital prototypes for Volkswagen’s vehicles.

According to Oliver Blume, the CEO of Volkswagen-Porsche, the ambitious goals of AI Lab encompass elevating customer experience through the integration of artificial intelligence. The aim is to seamlessly connect cars with external digital ecosystems, fostering an enhanced product experience. Acknowledging the pivotal role of collaboration with technology companies, Blume envisions streamlining cooperation on both organizational and cultural fronts for future endeavors.

The move by Volkswagen hints at a potential evolution in the integration of current driver assistance software with external infrastructures. While the automotive and tech industries have concentrated efforts on addressing challenges related to autonomous driving, achieving a fully autonomous vehicle remains elusive.

Experts posit that connectivity to external infrastructure, such as linking vehicles to traffic signals and roads through hardware and AI software, might be a crucial step forward. This could facilitate vehicle-to-vehicle communication, collision avoidance, and shared sensing when vehicles traverse the same routes.

AI Lab, as disclosed by Volkswagen’s Head of Research and Development, Michael Steiner, is empowered to independently negotiate partnerships with tech companies, irrespective of existing arrangements. This signifies a strong emphasis on expediting the prototyping process, intending to bring AI solutions to production more efficiently. The company’s focus areas include vehicle-to-vehicle communication, infotainment, predictive maintenance, and advancements in charging technologies.

In an exciting development, Volkswagen has already initiated “explanatory talks” regarding the first products from AI Lab, engaging in discussions with potential partners to pave the way for innovative and transformative AI solutions.
