BMW Introduces Remote Valet Parking via Smartwatch
Announced at CES 2015 in Las Vegas, BMW has officially introduced their fully automated Remote Valet Parking Assistant with a little help from a BMW i3 research vehicle which combines information from the vehicle’s four laser scanners with the digital site plan of a building, for example a multi-storey car park.
If the driver uses the smartwatch to activate the fully-automated Remote Valet Parking Assistant, the system will steer the vehicle independently through the levels, while the driver has already got out of the car. The Remote Valet Parking Assistant recognizes the structural features of the car park and equally reliably steers round any obstacles that appear unexpectedly – such as incorrectly parked vehicles.
