BMW Intelligent Headlight Technology: Long Version.
First introduced on the new BMW 7 Series (July 2012) as part of the
optional Adaptive LED Headlights, this functionality is now also supported
with Xenon headlights on all new BMW 3 Series Saloon and Touring models
specified with a Visibility package.
BMW Adaptive Headlights are combined with BMW High-beam Assistant
technology to provide an intelligent headlight system that optimises the
illumination of the road ahead without glaring on-coming traffic and other
road users. This ensures improved visibility and safety during night time
and poor weather driving conditions.
New BMW 5 Series Sedan 530d Surround View Camera
http://www.eurocarnews.com - Innovative Top View and Side View features:
enhanced proximity awareness for maneuvering.
The new BMW 5 Series Sedan is available with a back-up camera providing
images presented in color and in an optimum perspective in the Control
Display. Interactive tracking lines show the driver the optimum steering
wheel angle for parking as well as the tightest turning circle. However,
the new 5 Series offers an even more advanced proximity-camera system: Top
Top View provides an even more comprehensive and complete picture of the
car and its surroundings. In addition to the back-up camera and the PDC
sensors, Top View uses two cameras in the side mirrors, and combines all
three images through a central processor. This provides an overall picture
presented in the Control Display showing both the car and its surroundings
from a birds eye perspective. This clear overview enables the driver to
manoeuvre precisely even in confined spaces.
Side View provides specific assistance for the driver in metropolitan
driving situations. Side View uses two cameras integrated in the front
bumper and serves to monitor traffic moving crosswise to the vehicle. The
images obtained in this way are likewise transmitted to the Control Display
and provide an early overview of traffic conditions to the left and right
of the car, particularly when pulling out of a narrow or unclear driveway.

BMW TwinPower Turbo Engines CGI animation
BMW has released a fancy CGI animation promo for their BMW
EfficientDynamics engine family featuring TwinPower turbo.
The video starts off with an android of sorts virtually building an engine.
It goes on to demonstrate BMW's "Perfect Cylinder" combustion via turbo, Valvetronic and direct injection
Now this is where things get interesting as the android continues to build
a four cylinder engine mounted in a vehicle's engine bay longitudinally.
BMW loyalists might want to look away at this part as the android then
takes another 4-cylinder turbo and
mounts it transversely. This indicates a front wheel drive vehicle, which
BMW has already announced, but not without an apprehensive response from
purists. They fear the move will dilute BMW's ability to make cars with
great driving dynamics - a characteristic the BMW brand has become known
The video continues with the modular engine being expanded to 6-cylinder
and then it's cut in half as a 3-cylinder and fitted to a new smaller
vehicle presumably the upcoming i3.
