Contactless opening of the tailgate.
You’re standing behind your new BMW ActiveHybrid 5 with your hands full and want to load the boot. So now you need to search your pockets to find the car key. Or do you? No, not any more. With innovative Comfort Access as special equipment you can open the boot lid without making contact.
One movement of the foot in the right position is all that’s needed. A brief movement of your foot below the rear bumper – and a sensor triggers the boot opening mechanism. The lid unlocks and springs open it automatically. Sensors are installed at different heights in the rear bumper panel to detect persons. They register the movement of the foot between shin and tip of the foot and send a signal to the on-board computer.
This innovative optional equipment from BMW ConnectedDrive provides increased convenience when operating and loading the vehicle from the rear. However, the system does not grants access authorization unless it also identifies the car key that the person is carrying.
