be divulgence a prophesy of an interior whose pattern and user
interface are extensively blending for entirely programmed pushing on board
a automobile that is seamlessly integrated into a driver’s digital
life. The innovations BMW is presenting during a CES uncover in design,
record and functionality emphasize a company’s heading purpose over
many years – by a ConnectedDrive programme – in a margin of
connected driving.


BMW’s pioneering advances in a areas of programmed driving,
intelligent connectivity and control and arrangement systems are closely
interconnected. The association offers rarely innovative systems and
technologies in all these areas. Examples embody a driver
assistance systems accessible for a brand’s stream indication range, the

today’s prolongation vehicles. This is another sign of a high
peculiarity and intensity of a record already deployed in current
BMW models.


From prophesy (CES 2016) to product (2017): a BMW Connected
personal digital mobility companion.

With ConnectedDrive, BMW was an early colonize in enabling extensive
in-car entrance to online infotainment and communication functions. In
open 2016, BMW went on to yield a digital height – in a shape
of BMW Connected – that business can entrance not usually in their BMW
though also on a far-reaching operation of inclination outward a vehicle. This allows
mobility formulation to be seamlessly integrated into users’ digital

The service, that allows drivers to keep their eye on their parked
automobile during any time, regardless of their location, will make its
prolongation indication entrance in Feb 2017 on house a new BMW 5 Series Sedan.


Intelligent connectivity.

BMW Connected turns a automobile and mobile inclination into touchpoints
for a Open Mobility Cloud. At CES 2017, BMW will be showcasing
digital services that will concede drivers of destiny programmed vehicles
to optimise a approach they devise their daily lives. One such underline will
capacitate drivers to entrance wide-ranging information about places or
buildings they see along their route. The information can be selected
regulating BMW Augmented Gesture Control – a new form of gesticulate control –
by indicating during a sold building, for example. The connected
pushing knowledge will also be extended by intelligent voice control.
BMW Connected demos will underline a idealist judgment of an in-car
voice-controlled personal digital partner that business are
informed with in other areas of their daily life. The element being
presented during CES 2017 is a in-car focus of Microsoft’s
Cortana. This means that a voice-controlled capabilities already
offering by Microsoft Cortana on a home PC could or smartphone in
destiny also be accessible on house a BMW. For example, BMW Connected

both a surrogate for and a element to compulsory switches and buttons.


With a Air Touch system, featured during CES 2016 in a BMW i Vision
Future Interaction judgment car, BMW presented a breathtaking arrangement that
can be operated only like a touchscreen – solely that there is no
tangible hit involved. Now this element has been taken a stage
serve with BMW HoloActive Touch. BMW HoloActive Touch fuses the
advantages of a BMW Head-Up Display, BMW gesticulate control and
discerning touchscreen functionality with insubordinate record to
emanate a totally new kind of user interface for a vehicle
interior of a future. This innovative interface between a driver
and automobile consists of a free-floating practical arrangement that is
projected in a area above a centre console. The element is operated
directly by finger movements, while an ultrasound source provides
pleasing acknowledgment of a driver’s commands. That said, in neither
box is there ever any tangible hit between a motorist and a user interface.
