Partnering with IBM, GM has developed the auto industry’s first cognitive mobility system. Building on technologies like OnStar and IBM’s Watson, the new GM OnStar Go system is made to connect drivers with their favorite brands, so you can receive personalized content, digital channels, and more.
According to GM, the new system will allow drivers to enhance their experience behind the wheel. For example, you can avoid traffic when low on gas, find gas and pay from the dash, pre-order coffee if you are on the go, and get in-vehicle entertainment and info customized for your personal needs.

“On average, people in the U.S. spend more than 46 minutes per day in their car and are looking for ways to optimize their time,” said Phil Abram, Executive Director, GM Connected Products and Strategy. “By leveraging OnStar’s connectivity and combining it with the power of Watson, we’re looking to provide safer, simpler and better solutions to make our customers’ mobility experience more valuable and productive.”
GM’s goal is to expand the OnStar Go system to make it more available to customers by the end of 2017. Other features allow you to receive restaurant recommendations from IBM’s Watson, and you can also get alerts to see when in-store pickups are ready. The possibilities are nearly limitless. We can’t wait to see this new system in action.
