BMW has spoken of a new prototype BMW i3 electric car that can drive and park itself. The intelligent system will be activated via the driver’s smartwatch with a click of a button or using voice commands.
The autonomous driving system will be unveiled officially at the CES technology trade show in Las Vegas next month.
The technology will mean that drivers of the i3 will be able to leave the EV atentrance of a car park, activate the “Remote Valet Parking Assistant” via their smartwatch and let the car’s sensors guide it to a parking spot.
What’s more, once the driver is ready to leave, they can summon the car to meet them at the exit.
