IBM is teaming with BMW to see what role Watson’s Internet of Things (IoT) platform can play in making cars smarter and more intuitive.

BMW will be the first IBM client to collocate a team of researchers and engineers at IBM’s Watson IoT headquarters in Munich, Germany. (IBM notes that it’s working with other car makers as well.)

According to Niklaus Waser, head of Watson IoT Europe and leader of IBM’s Global Watson IoT Center, the car maker wants to look at how it can personalize the driving experience and create a more intuitive driver support system for BMW cars. “One of the benefits of machine learning is that a car can learn preferences and driving habits,” Waser says. “We can improve the comfort and safety of driving.”

Four BMW hybrid sports cars at the IoT center will be outfitted with Watson. “These are prototypes,” Waser says.

Waser said that IBM is specifically looking at six areas where it sees cars becoming more than just modes of transportation:
