CES may be an electronics trade show, but that hasn’t stopped automakers from showing off their new technolgy in recent years. For this year’s CES, BMW has been especially active, demonstrating some impressive autonomous vehicle technology that enabled a couple of the automaker’s i3 cars to learn how to park themselves while prventing drivers from crashing.
BMW is at CES this week demonstrating some of its newest advances in the field of highly autonomous driving. If you remember, last year we were taken to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and sped around the track in a tricked-out driverless 4-series. This year’s theme remains essentially the same though rather than focusing on high speed driving and drifting, the German automaker has slowed everything down. We were invited to a hotel’s rooftop parking area where a couple BMW i3s were parked at either end of the space. One would demonstrate 360-degree collision avoidance and the other fully automated parking. They both did a very impressive job.
