Kia launches the "Kia Owner's Manual app". It is based on artificial intelligence (AI) and developed in partnership with Google Cloud and Megazone.The app, designed for mobile devices, is easy to use and explains the features found on Kia models using a smartphone camera.
Instead of using a printed guide, customers can use the app to more easily find information about individual features. The app also has the advantage of allowing you to explain functions in a simple way
Kia has offered customers in some markets mobile apps that use augmented reality (AR) since 2017. However, widespread use of the app was limited, as it required measuring all layouts and buttons for each new model.
Kia, Google and Megazone have focused on recognizing characters on buttons that make the app compatible with any new model, since vehicle symbols are universal. Pairing with Google Cloud and Megazone makes the new app customizable and adapted for dozens of global Kia markets.
Using unique image learning technology based on the AI platform used by Google Cloud, the app's character scanner feature allows you to accurately identify button symbols inside the car from any angle.
