AIDA_Alone_loresMIT’s SENSEable City LAB and Personal Robotics Group have partnered with Volkswagen  to create AIDA (Affective Intelligent Driving Agent).

AIDA mounts on your dashboard and acts a s a friendly driving assistant.  It gets real time information and learns where you stop over time and offers the shortest routes to your destinations.  From the press release:

To identify the set of goals the driver would like to achieve, AIDA analyses the driver’s mobility patterns, keeping track of common routes and destinations. AIDA draws on an understanding of the city beyond what can be seen through the windshield, incorporating real-time event information and knowledge of environmental conditions, as well as commercial activity, tourist attractions, and residential areas.
