BMW at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES)
BMW has earned an undisputed status as one of the worldâ€™s leading carmakers with developments â€“ grouped under the BMW ConnectedDrive banner â€“ focusing on every aspect of the link-up between the driver, vehicle and outside world. The company is underlining its position in the vanguard of technology at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2014 in Las Vegas. The company will use the headline US fair â€“ which spotlights advances from across the world of digitalisation and connectivity â€“ to present innovative previews of future developments and new applications for series-produced vehicles.
Highly automated driving at the limit
The BMW Group has created a new kind of research prototype for highly automated driving which uses advanced control technology to demonstrate maximum safety up to the carâ€™s dynamic limit. In addition, the prototype vehicle will highlight the effectiveness of a new generation of control systems on the closed-off track. These systems actively intervene in the direction-changing decision-making process and ensure the electronically controlled steering works in perfect harmony with the brakes and accelerator. As such they go a crucial step further than current systems, which react to the onset of understeer or oversteer with carefully calculated braking inputs.
