TomTom and Microsoft are making their own K.I.T.T.

At least, that’s what it sounds like in TomTom’s description of its upcoming Azure-based Generative AI voice assistant for vehicles.

The company says it’s built on TomTom’s Digital Cockpit, and allows drivers to “converse naturally with their vehicle,” verbally control navigation and locate stops en route, and even control onboard systems like opening windows or adjusting temperatures. It’ll be demonstrated at CES in January.
