BMW Group x HIGH MOBILITY

 

HIGH MOBILITY collaborated with the BMW Research and Development team to provide the device awareness ability for the concept BMW i3 vehicle showcased by the BMW Group at CES 2015. To offer even greater ease of use for the driver the concept shows unlocking the vehicle by gesture control using a smartwatch.

Powered by the ability to sense its surroundings, the car can be programmed to recognise the driver by his device when the driver enters its physical space - it unlocks the doors as the driver approaches and locks them again when the driver leaves the vehicle, in each case in response to a specific gesture.
