BMW has announced a new feature for its BMW ConnectedDrive in car system, the ability to find a parking space for you.
The new system is apparently capable of finding empty parking spaces close to your current location, the system is in the prototype stages at the moment.
BMW was one of the first carmakers to understand the importance of connectivity between cars, drivers and their surroundings, and with BMW ConnectedDrive it has gone on to become a world leader in this field. At the same time, the company is further expanding its position as a premium mobility provider, with intelligent services and applications like ChargeNow, ParkNow or intermodal navigation. Now, with the Dynamic Parking Prediction research project, the BMW Group is demonstrating a solution that will in future be able to shorten the search for vacant on-street parking, particularly in cities. Together with its partner INRIX, a world-leading provider of transportation intelligence and connected car services, BMW will present a research prototype of this application at TU-Automotive Detroit (formerly Telematics Detroit), one of the world’s leading connected car fairs, from 3 – 4 June 2015. The system will be displayed in a BMW i3.
