CES 2016 has kicked off and here's what BMW is showcasing at the annual consumer electronics show, including the debut of the BMW i Vision Future Interaction, a concept car which provides an outlook on the networked cockpit and user interface of the future, as well as previewing the upcoming BMW i8 Spyder model.

Below is a summary of the technologies that BMW is showing off at the show. For the full press release and details, please see here.

BMW i Vision Future Interaction
• Concept Car provides an outlook on the networked cockpit and the user interface of the future.

• BMW i Vision Future Interaction with high-resolution vehicle displays whose content adjusts to match the situation; function control with gestures, touch-sensitive surfaces and voice control.

• Information for the driver through head-up display, instrument cluster with three-dimensional display and 21-inch panorama display.

• BMW i Vision Future Interaction with world premiere of AirTouch: sensors recognise movements made with the hand and also depth movements. This means that the panorama display can be operated like a t touchscreen without having to actually touch the surface.

• Reduction of control elements to a minimum. Three drive modes – Pure Drive (driving yourself), Assist (assistance systems intervene actively) and Auto Mode (highly automated operation) – selectable at the steering wheel.
BMW i Vision Future Interactions






BMW i8 Mirrorless
• System with three cameras replaces the rearview mirror, covers larger viewing angles and eliminates dangerous “blind spots”.

• Images from the cameras are united on a display which replaces the interior mirror. Presets for the camera or display are not necessary.

• System evaluates camera images and provides a situative response to imminent hazards, for example with yellow warning icons.

• Superimposed trajectory lines provide support during parking, and the passenger can also observe the traffic behind the vehicle.

• BMW i3 Extended Rearview Mirror links up mirror and camera technology. In the interior mirror, the mirror view is overlaid with very precise images from a camera positioned on the roof. This provides a significantly extended field of view.
BMW i8 Mirrorless





Internet of Things
• Stands for even more comprehensive networking which facilitates new services for more efficiency and comfort.

• The intelligent Open Mobility Cloud of the BMW Group connects networked systems such as a BMW i3 and a Smart Home with personal end devices like smart phone or smart watch.

• The Open Mobility Cloud networks the correct information and functions, and uses intelligent control to allow complex processes to be started automatically, without their being requested or having to be initiated with an app.

Users are provided with predictive information relevant to them personally by networking with the Open Mobility Cloud.
• Mobility Mirror – mirror and display medium at the same time, component of the Internet of Things networked using the Open Mobility Cloud.

• Important information for the day is shown in the Mobility Mirror display, such as personal calendar, mobility options, energy status of the smart home, charge status of the BMW i3, weather forecast.

• Gesture Control Parking: The BMW i3 recognises gestures, and drives into and out of a parking space fully automatically.

• Remote 3D View: The research application uses the cameras in the BMW i3 as constituent elements of the Internet of Things. The images taken by the cameras can be streamed to networked end devices and provide an overview of the area around the vehicle.

• Bumper Detect uses an innovative system, identifies whether the driver’s own vehicle being parked has been bumped and activates the vehicle cameras. The networked systems at the same time send a message to the driver’s smart phone, and images are sent if requested.

• Bumper Detect also recognises whether unauthorised persons are tampering with the vehicle and sends images to the networked mobile end devices.
Internet of Things





BMW Connected
• Prototype of a personalised digital assistant for individual mobility. The focus is on the needs and requirements for mobility of the future.

• BMW Connected and the Open Mobility Cloud represent a radical new conceptual approach to mobility. BMW Connected is available all the time on all networked end devices: at home, on foot or on the move in the user’s own vehicle, or on public transport.

• The platform for BMW Connected is the Open Mobility Cloud with a highly flexible service architecture.

• The Open Mobility Cloud offers far-reaching capabilities for machine learning and data analysis. The more frequently users make use of the digital services, the more effectively they can be personalized. Information relevant to the user is always provided at the right time. BMW Connected learns, for example, routes which are taken on a regular basis and proactively informs the user if any disruption is expected along the route.
BMW Connected





Future Mobility Solutions
• Light & Charge – simultaneously innovative street lighting with LED technology and charging station for charging the high-voltage batteries of electric vehicles.

• Standardised connection for charging cable from electric vehicles including vehicles from other manufacturers, cashless payment. Vehicle start using the smart phone app or RFID card.



New control concepts from BMW
• BMW gesture control in the new BMW 7 Series for controlling information, entertainment and communication functions.
• New control freedom for rear-seat passengers with BMW Touch Command.
Control Concepts






BMW ConnectedRide
• Motorcycle laser light in the BMW K1600 GTL concept vehicle with a range of 600 metres for main beam.
• Head-up Display helmet projects necessary or requested traffic and vehicle information directly into the visual field of the driver
BMW ConnectedRide



The above presents a summary of the technologies discussed. For the full press release and in depth info on each technology, please see here.

I'm sure that's just something they decided to do with the concept to make it easier to see the tech inside. Certainly the production version will have doors - hopefully the butterfly doors that the previous i8 Spyder concept and production coupe have.

There's nothing I hate more than two-spoke steering wheels. Nothing.

Imagine the processor for your mirror goes out? I like the idea though, reliability will need to be tested vigorously

But will it *back* into parking spaces fully automatically?
Because that's how the cool kids park.

Mirror less cars... Perfect for the newer M car fans that require " M mirrors".

Also, steering column mounted gear lever has to be a joke.

Can't wait to see the camera side mirrors to be a standard feature in many cars, not only BMW, in the near future. This idea has been around for many years now.

The i8 Spider is by far the sexiest convertible in existence right now. If it makes production. There is nothing out there that is as beautiful.
