The 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas is just around the corner and BMW will use the show to demonstrate different forms of digital connectivity, as well as a virtual drive in the Vision iNEXT concept.
From January 8 to 11, 2019, the Vision vehicle will be displayed alongside an installation which will provide a virtual simulation of what it is like to drive in the fully connected Vision iNEXT.
The simulation will begin with the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant suggesting an agenda for the day with activities for the day planned out. Visitors to the booth will wear virtual reality goggles and, with the assistance of a specially-designed spatial concept, will be able to virtually experience a drive in the Vision iNEXT.
This will comprise of a traditional scenario before the vehicle takes over the driving autonomously. The Intelligent Personal Assistant will continue to interact with the ‘driver’ by making suggestions and controlling various digital services such as video conferencing, shopping as well as smart home functions.
The discreetly integrated technology, known as ‘shytech’, which only becomes visible when needed will also be displayed at two further exhibits outside the vehicle as well as a self-riding BMW R 1200 GS test bike which will be displayed in the outdoor vehicle presentations.
