At the Consumer Electronics Show 2015, BMW is set to debut an advanced self-parking system operated through the German firm’s smartwatch.
BMW debuted its smartwatch at CES 2014 with it providing information about the charge status and range of the BMW i3. As for the self-parking system, the smartwatch will enable the wearer and car owner to activate the Remote Valet Parking Assistant which will steer the vehicle into the correct parking space even if the driver is out of the car.
Thanks to a selection of advanced laser scanners, BMW says that the self-parking system, can avoid obstacles and poorly parked vehicles. Beyond allowing the driver to park the car without actually being nearby, the Remote Valet Parking Assistant means the car can drive itself to the car park exit and wait for the driver.
