Car With Robot Companion

Chinese car maker BYD will be showing off a concept car at the Beijing Motor Show this week called QIN Concept.

The QIN Concept is an electric hybrid with a maximum speed of 115 mph. The sedan type car looks similar to a Toyota Corolla and will feature a dashboard robot called i.

When the car is started, the robot rises out of his hiding place in the dashboard.  i has different facial expressions and more than 1 camera to possibly detect driver fatigue.  The robot will also have some movement and sound a as well.

Hopefully the robot would also have voice recognition allowing the driver to control things like the stereo through voice commands.
