Les principales innovations présentées sont la BMW i8 Mirrorless Concept qui préfigure les voitures sans rétroviseurs ou plutôt sans miroir, et le principe d’écran de contrôle sans contact avec AirTouch.
Mirrorless Concept :
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.
Sensors on the instrument dashboard permit 3D control.
One year ago, BMW already presented the new gesture control at the CES. This enables simple movements of a finger to carry out actions such as adjusting the loudness or accepting phone calls. Meanwhile, this technology is available as BMW Gesture Control in the new BMW 7 Series. AirTouch is now taking another big leap forward. Sensors are installed in the area of the instrument dashboard which respond to hand movements here and therefore permit three-dimensional control. A movement of the hand or a gesture activates the surfaces on the large panorama display.
AirTouch has another option to confirm an action. A concealed AirTouch button is located on the rim of the steering wheel. It is on the left and easy to reach with the thumb, and it lights up when a menu or icon can be activated. One tap is sufficient to activate the desired program or change a setting. The passenger also has a button like this positioned on the side sill in the door area. Passengers are therefore able to use one hand to navigate through the menu and the other hand to confirm inputs very quickly.
The intelligent AirTouch menu control reduces the number of steps needed to make a selection. For example, when activating the phone pad, the system automatically brings up contacts or call lists to the top select level so that a call can be made with just one further action. AirTouch recognises which selection and control steps are required next and displays them in advance. This allows the driver to focus all their concentration on the road ahead or offers additional convenient control options when the vehicle is travelling in highly automated mode.
Vivement que cela se retrouve sur toute la gamme.
