BMW Group is showing Automated Valet Parking for the first time at the IAA Mobility 2021.

Munich. At the International Motor Show (IAA)
Mobility 2021, which will take place from September 7 to 12 in Munich,
the BMW Group will be showcasing in a variety of ways what premium
urban mobility could look like in the future. One example of this is
the Automated Valet Parking project, which was developed together with
the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) and other
partners. For the first time, interested parties will have the
opportunity to experience automated and driverless parking and service
functions up close in a unique demonstration.


The focus of the impressive demonstration is the new technology
flagship of the BMW Group, the BMW iX. As an innovator in the
development fields of software, digital services and networking, the
fully electric SUV is able to communicate with the infrastructure  and
to carry out automated, driverless parking processes. Particular
attention is paid to the safety of the driving maneuvers and the data
exchange required for this between the vehicle, smartphone app and
parking garage infrastructure. In doing so, the BMW Group is
underlining that safety always has the highest priority. In addition
to the complete parking process, viewers experience other automated
service functions such as washing or charging the BMW iX with the help
of robots.


The demonstrations will take place during the entire IAA Mobility
2021 from 9:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the parking garage West at Messe
München. A shuttle service connects the main entrance of Messe Ost
with the parking garage West. An IAA ticket is not required for the visit.
