AviCoS: Avatar Replaces Owner's Manual

Caption: Displayed on the monitor of the Audi Mulitmedia Interface that comes standard in all new Audi models, an avatar supports the driver with explicit information on the vehicle in a natural-language dialog -- supported by images and videos. The system can be triggered by spoken questions or by touching controls, making cumbersome paging through owner’s manuals a thing of the past.
