Automakers are working on a new class of cars that will identify the person behind the wheel, adjusting seats, driving modes, ambiance and even the music for a more personalized experience. These cars will feature a cloud-connected, onboard computer and a camera with facial recognition software and other biometric indicators to gauge a driver’s emotional state and play soothing music whenever it recognizes that the driver is getting angry.

In addition to scaling up the degree of personalization, the new technology lets the owner adapt the vehicle for a variety of drivers, for example setting the speed limits for valets or preventing a new driver from accessing personal information in a navigation system, writes The New York Times.

Honda’s new concept car, called the "NeuV," is powered by artificial intelligence “emotion engine,” which creates new possibilities for human interaction, notes Business Insider.
