with self-driving cars not far from hitting public roads, the BMW group has presented a new element of BMW ActiveAssist during CES 2014 in las vegas. the new system is a safety assistance control which brings the vehicle back into line in demanding driving situations without any input from the driver. implemented into a fleet of BMW 2 series and 6 series production cars, the highly automated driving technology demonstration managed to pilot each vehicle at high speeds on a slalom run between cones and even blasted through a wet marked out circular course without problems controlling oversteer or understeer. by 2020, BMW hopes the technical foundations should be in place for a motorway-based system that will allow highly automated driving in series-produced vehicles.
