No, we’re not teaching you how to steal a car, the title of the article comes from BMW’s latest video advertisement featuring the new BMW Vision ConnectedDrive Concept.
With an interesting plot and characters, the Munich-based automaker describes the most important features found in the latest concept.
Vision ConnectedDrive was unveiled at this year’s Geneva Motor Show and according to BMW the car’s design has been somewhat “downplayed” since the company wanted the attention to fall on the technology rather than the futuristic design lines.
The new concept is meant to showcase future technologies and advancements in the mobility field. The design and technology of this spectacular roadster are aimed at making the vehicle an integral part of a networked world.
Starting with the advanced Head-Up Display that uses technology to project in 3D essential information. Next we have the BMW Vision ConnectedDrive Infotainment system which is based primarily on location-based information. Only information on the surroundings falling within a certain, predefined radius is shown. The filter features allow the information available to be filtered by content and to be displayed as a specific selection and even personalized. These filter settings can be made in the comfort of your own home or can be carried out spontaneously in the vehicle. Individually tailored information is thus obtained from raw data. The filters work semantically, ordering information not just by keyword but also by the meanings associated with that keyword.
Location-based services enable the information available to be used to create a digital tour of the city or to book a ticket, complete with the appropriate entry in the digital calendar, or even find a jewelry store.
