There are many things that BMW is going to offer to the consumers at the event as they are coming up with better options that they can incorporate in their vehicles.
BMW is keen on focusing on the concept of the highly automated driving with limits that makes use of the highly advanced control technology. BMW claims that they will come up with the prototype of the technology and will demonstrate it at the CES 2014. The new system that BMW will showcase also intervenes with the direction changing and decision making process and ensures that the car is moving smoothly at a regulated speed.
BMW has also realized the importance of smartphones that most of the BMW buyers use and therefore they are interested in better apps and digital services that they can offer to their consumers. BMW said that the consumers of BMW i3 will be able to connect their car with Samsung Galaxy Gear which will help the consumers to get better driving experience. The devices can be worn on the wrist and will have some new features like BMW iRemote App that works efficiently even when the user is outside the car. The research application also shows that the information is send and received even when the car windows, doors and sunroof are closed making it easier for the car owners to communicate while they are on the move.
The German carmaker is also serious about how they can make their cars safer and therefore they are coming up with camera based assistance systems that offer enhanced safety. The new technology is combined with Collision Warning System and Pedestrian Warning system with city braking function. BMW believes that the camera based safety features are better than radar based applications when it comes to recognition of stationary obstacles in front of the vehicle.
