BMW 7 series finds a space, then parks itself

For the first time, you don’t need to be in the driving seat to park your car. Using the latest BMW Display Key, users can effortlessly manoeuvre their latest 7 series in and out the tightest of spots with the touch of a button. This can be done from the driving seat or even from outside the vehicle.

For support in tight manoeuvres, front and rear PDC systems use ultrasonic sensors to monitor the area around the BMW and alert the driver to potential obstacles or hazards. Whilst a reversing assist camera and surround-view display a real time view so the driver can see exactly what is happening around them. For the ultimate support, the car will even search for an available space and automatically park itself with BMW Park Assist.

The key is a smart piece of technology that connects to the car. 

The latest series also features, BMW connected drive. It puts users in touch with the Concierge Service for anything they may need, at home or abroad, 24 hours a day. The intelligent BMW Emergency Call provides a direct link to the local emergency services. Users can contact their BMW from anywhere in the world with the convenient Remote Services.

The BMW Touch Command tablet with 7" display, integrated into the rear centre armrest, brings an unparalleled degree of control to passengers. Everything from air conditioning to seat heating, from ambient light settings to all entertainment functions can be controlled from your fingertips allowing the user to check fuel, set cabin temperature and see whether the car is locked at any time.

The cars also feature laserlight technology which outshines other headlights, giving users a more intelligent way to see the road ahead. It illuminates the road ahead with a 600m high beam range, automatically adapts its shape and intensity when required and is always glare-free to oncoming vehicles.
