ChatGPT will shortly be mobile. Mercedes-Benz announced on Thursday that beginning June 16, US drivers will be able to operate some of their luxury vehicles using ChatGPT as part of a pilot programme. ChatGPT, which is compatible with approximately 900,000 vehicles equipped with the automaker’s “MBUX” system, will be downloaded over-the-air after drivers opt in via a Mercedes app or vocal command, according to the company. Mercedes will conduct a three-month evaluation to determine how drivers utilise the technology.

Mercedes stated that ChatGPT would make its car system’s responses sound more natural and would allow drivers to inquire about destinations or other topics, such as what to cook for dinner.

Previously, the manufacturer allowed drivers and passengers to verbalise a variety of requests, such as activating seat heaters. The ChatGPT transaction bodes well for Microsoft, which offers a cloud-based version of the popular chatbot.

Rival Microsoft now has a response to Amazon.com’s efforts to deploy its voice assistant Alexa in more cars, thanks to its investment in ChatGPT’s creator, OpenAI.

The German automaker stated in a press release that drivers will not only be able to issue commands using the phrase “Hey Mercedes,” but they will also be able to conduct conversations with their vehicles.

Microsoft stated in a separate blog post that future plug-in integrations could enable drivers to make restaurant reservations, book movie tickets, and perform other duties while behind the wheel.

Mercedes stated that the results of the pilot programme will inform its plans to implement artificial intelligence in other countries and languages. It added that voice data is stored, anonymized, and analysed in the Mercedes cloud.

Rival General Motors announced in March that, as part of its broader partnership with Microsoft, it was investigating ChatGPT’s potential applications in automobiles.
