AUTONO­MOUS DRIVING

Everyone’s talking about it, but what will it mean for us? Find out when we see the first driverless car and what the next steps are.

LEVEL 1

Driver assistance: The current BMW Personal CoPilot driver assistance systems support drivers on the road and help ensure additional safety and comfort.

LEVEL 2

Partly Automated Driving: The Steering and Lane Control Assistant make daily driving much easier. They can brake automatically, accelerate and, unlike Level 1, take over steering.

Imprint

LEVEL 3

Highly Automated Driving: The car will be able to drive autonomously over long distances, such as on motorways. The driver, however, must be able to take over control within a few seconds.

Imprint

LEVEL 4

Fully Automated Driving: The car can handle highly complex urban driving situations, such as the sudden appearance of construction sites, without any driver intervention.

Imprint

LEVEL 5

Full Automation: The car performs any and all driving tasks. Drivers don’t need to be fit to drive and don’t even need to have a license. Everyone in the car is a passenger.
