BMW i3 - Vehicle automation, 360-degree collision avoidance

BMW i3 - Vehicle automation, 360-degree collision avoidance

BMW, at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show, presented i3 prototypes with 360-degree collision avoidance and fully automated parking in multi-story car parks.

The Verge, like other media outlets, tried to crash those cars but failed even when being outside of the vehicle, controlling the i3 via Samsung's Gear S smartwatch.

No matter how hard you try to go forward or backward into an obstacle, the car will "beep" and stop.

Additionally, that car can find a space and park itself and then be summoned.

Everything works just fine, at least at low speeds. Probably a few more years will be needed to launch similar systems on the market.
