Brought near the venue of CESBMW i 3. I3 is an electric car that carries a battery and travels only with electric power.

What is different from the usual i 3 is an opening provided in several places of the car body. Among them, a laser scanner is installed and it is designed to sense obstacles in the surroundings.

Obstacles simulating brick building are set in the test rally.

First of all, I started moving slowly with my obstacle.

And of course it stopped just before. But, of course, you can not call it advanced technology at this level.

Next, i 3 rushes into the stage to reproduce the scene turning the corner. As I proceeded as it was, I hit the wall or I was going to scrape the inner door slickerly, but i3 stopped automatically so as not to hit.

With a sensing system including a laser scanner that monitors 360 degrees around, conflicts in every case can be avoided / mitigated.

A sensor is settled also in the front bumper.

And above all, the true value of this vehicle is the automatic traveling system in cooperation with smart watches and others. When operating smart watch with getting out of the car ... ....

The i3 which no one is on starts to move automatically and I began looking for a space where one can park.

I found a space between two vehicles i3. I succeeded in stopping the car in the parking frame slowly as it is. The parking position was not designated in advance, i3 ran in the parking lot, found the right place, parked automatically.

And again when I manipulate smart watch again, i3 started moving automatically and ran to the designated place. In traveling in the parking lot, it seems that the speed is about 8 km / h because it is running while checking the safety of the surroundings.

Also, at the CES venue, it seems that demonstrations of car computer systems and tablets controlling them are being conducted.

In the current model, iDrive operates with the wheel, but with the new system it is possible to touch and touch the screen.

Furthermore, a camera for operation is attached to the roof ... ...

It is possible to operate by merely moving your finger in the air without touching the screen, and it seems to make it possible for the driver to operate with natural posture even more.

Although these are new technologies published at CES, at the moment they are under development. In case of i3, there are problems such as miniaturization of the laser sensor in order to install it in an actual commercial vehicle, BMW needs about 3 years development time in the next 3 years. It is a place where it is desired to put into practical use of a system which is likely to increase safety on the driver side and surroundings.
