BMW to demonstrate self-parking technology at CES 2015

55 sec read

Can you believe it? A year has come and it is nearly gone, as we prepare ourselves to usher in 2015. You know what that means for tech followers, it would mean making the long and tiring trek to the mecca of tech, which would be CES 2015. BMW will be there, where they intend to showcase what they call the Remote Valet Parking Assistant, which is a unique system that is activated by a smartwatch, ensuring that the driver does not have to do anything while parking, as the advanced collision avoidance system gets to work.

At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, BMW gave us our first taste of its new ActiveAssist autonomous technology in the form of a 2-Series prototype that could handle itself while driving at the limit. At next year’s show, which runs from January 6 to 9 in Las Vegas, BMW will show an i3 prototype equipped with a more advanced version of its ActiveAssist technology. The latest version of ActiveAssist features highly-accurate position and environment recognition systems that rely on a myriad of sensors including new laser scanners. This allows a vehicle to manoeuvre in almost any situation a driver may encounter, using a 360-degree view. BMW will demonstrate the technology in a parking lot. Four advanced laser scanners record the environment and reliably identify impediments such as columns using a digital site plan of a building. Using a special watch linked to the vehicle, the driver, now out of the vehicle, can instruct the ActiveAssist technology to steer the vehicle autonomously through the parking lot.
