Arrow BMW's Future Connected Drive and Efficient Dynamics Technologies

BMW has released its newest information and photos highlighting Connected Drive and Efficient Dynamics technologies of the future. Some exciting systems are in the works. The full PDFs detailing each technology is attached for download:


> Innovation Days: Connected Drive Meets Efficient Dynamics SUMMARY (PDF)
> Drivers Assistance Systems of the Future (Presentation in PDF)
> Efficient Dynamics Systems of the Future (Presentation in PDF)

Here is a summary of the major technological developments from the summary PDF:

1. Infotainment, navigation and personalisation getting to your destination in comfort and in the know.

1.1 The car key of the future.
A weekend trip with just your BMW key on you? Not a problem, as you can use it to book tickets, make cashless payments and access your hotel room.

1.2 My BMW Remote.
A smartphone app leads you back to your parking space and sets the desired interior vehicle temperature in advance.

1.3 Seamless Media Access.
Just brought home the latest album by your favourite band and only have time to listen to the first three tracks? No worries: track 4 will be ready to play in the car.

1.4 Mood-based playlist.
Chillout music on country roads, karaoke in a traffic jam, prog-rock after work – the Mood-based playlist delivers the appropriate music for every situation.

1.5 iPod Out.
Select tracks, compile playlists and use Genius *– anything your iPod can do, your car can too.

1.6 Micropause apps.
Hate the wait at red lights? Why not fill the time by reading the news or playing a game? Your car will let you know in good time when the lights are ready to turn green.

1.7 Outlook functionality in the car.
Can’t survive without mail? The car’s Outlook facility flags up the “You have mail” message directly from the exchange mail server.

1.8 Message Dictation.
If you want to reply right away, there’s no need to stop the car. Simply dictate your emails and text messages without taking your hands off the wheel or your eyes off the road.

1.9 iDrive Controller with integrated touch control.
A touch-sensitive surface on the iDrive Controller makes writing even easier.

1.10 microNavigation.
Which entrance at the zoo will get you straight to the elephant enclosure? microNavigation takes route guidance beyond the road.

1.11 Urban navigation.
Heading for a major event in town? With its insider knowledge, the urban navigation function works out the best detour.

1.12 Mobility Assistant.
Sometimes it’s quicker to go by public transport. The Mobility Assistant tells you when, guides you to a free parking space, and briefs you in advance on the return journey.

2. Driver assistance systems of the future – a guardian angel on board.

2.1 Active PDC.
You’re reversing out of a tight parking spot with your attention focused on the rear, while at the front things are getting too close for comfort – Active PDC helps prevent parking bumps and scrapes.

2.2 Remote Controlled Parking.
In future all you will need to do is park your car in front of the garage. The vehicle then manoeuvres itself into the garage – and out again – by remote control.

2.3 Proactive pedestrian protection systems.
You just glance right for a second and a pedestrian steps out from the left. In such situations, proactive pedestrian protection systems can save lives through warnings and emergency braking.

2.3.1 Camera-based pedestrian protection.

2.3.2 AMULETT.

2.4 Active Hazard Braking.
If the brake lights of the car ahead are approaching too fast, Active Hazard Braking automatically intervenes to prevent a collision – even at high speeds.

2.5 Lateral Collision Avoidance.
Multiple lanes, heavy traffic, the adjacent vehicle is trying to avoid a cyclist – Lateral Collision Avoidance swiftly points you to the best lane.

2.6 Traffic Jam and Queuing Assistant.
Active Cruise Control can be extended by the Traffic Jam and Queuing Assistant to keep the car in its lane even when cornering.

2.7 Emergency Stop Assistant.
A heart attack on the motorway – the car takes over, moves safely across to the hard shoulder without impeding other road users, and summons help.

Connected Drive for Efficient Dynamics – improved efficiency and dynamics through networking.

3.1 Green Driving Assistant.
What’s an extra ten minutes’ journey time when you can save three litres of fuel? The Green Driving Assistant allows you to select your route based on these options before you set out.

3.2 ECO mode – more efficient driving at the touch of a button.
How efficient is my driving? Is there room for improvement? Switch to ECO mode at the press of a button and simply sail towards the next motorway exit.

3.2.1 Display concept.

3.2.2 Active coasting and the proactive driving assistant.

3.3 Intelligent learning navigation.
Tailbacks on the way home: the intelligent learning navigation system alerts you even if you haven’t entered a destination. And it even knows your favourite “rat run”.

looks pretty amazing, not sure i like people being able to play games on the dash though, hopefully it doesnt allow you to do it while the car is moving...
