TECH REV­O­LU­TION

Auto Today - - First Drive -

The driv­ing as­sist sys­tems, that make use of a huge num­ber of sen­sors, cam­eras and radars to pro­vide the best as­sis­tance yet on a BMW cover ev­ery inch of this SUV. For the first time there is also a cam­era that watches the driver and gives its in­puts to be used in a wide va­ri­ety of sit­u­a­tions – in­clud­ing to judge if the driver is fa­tigued. On an emer­gency pull of the elec­tric park­ing brake by any of the oc­cu­pants in the car, de­pend­ing on the mar­ket reg­u­la­tions, the car will turn on the in­di­ca­tor to move into the slow­est lane, switch on the haz­ards de­pend­ing on traf­fic com­ing from be­hind, slow down, change lanes, get to the edge of the road and come to a stop and at the same time send out an SOS. The au­to­matic re­vers­ing sys­tem on the other hand, can drive the car in re­verse on its own in ex­actly the same way that it was driven for­ward, say into a tight park­ing spot for 50 me­tres tak­ing the help of 12 sen­sors and the rear view cam­era.
