Instead of the number of cylinders and the beauty of their products, car makers these days boasts about the connected convenience and safety features they have developed for their ugly eco-boxes. BMW, for instance, has just revealed what they have in store for the 2015 CES (Consumer Electronics Show).

BMW is all giddy and excited about their new technology feature that they decided to preview them weeks before the actual event. The highlights of their show include a 360-degree collision avoidance system and fully-automated parking in multi-storey car parks. Both technologies are featured on a BMW i3 show car for the 2015 CES.

The i3 equipped with the 360-degree collision avoidance system utilizes technologies in secure position and environment recognition using four laser scanners. If it detects an obstacle in the car’s way, the system brakes automatically to prevent the threat of collision.

The fully-automated Remote Valet Parking Assistant works in similar ways, steering the vehicle independently through the levels relying on laser scanners to avoid crashing into things. The idea is the driver can drive into the parking lot and then get out and go about his or her business while the car goes and parks itself.

Real world applications of these systems will find their way to production BMW models as soon as 2016.
