BMW's 360-degree anticollision technology brakes for youBMW shows off anticollision technology that applies the brakes for a driver, even if they're flooring the gas pedal. Though it will likely be several years before the tech is widely available, CNET's Kara Tsuboi gets behind the wheel to test it out.
[MUSIC] Can I brake? No. You, you, you just, you know, gonna go full throttle no matter what [INAUDIBLE] Oh god, wait. [NOISE] And now it did brake for you. [NOISE] A 360 degree collision avoidance. And for the teacher that gets you close to obstacles but not closers. We have sensors, [INAUDIBLE] four around the car. And the car builds up the map and estimates movement inside the map. So even obstacles that cannot be seen. Directly by the sensors. The obstacles will be there for the car and the system will right for them as well. Yeah, this is. This is the, the electric car functionality. It. If you lower your foot on the, on the, on the gas. It will automatically break for you, but this was the safety functionality. Now you see in the camera that you've gotten really close to the object. Yeah. The optimal use case for this function is maneuvering, parking, and all situations where you don't drive too fast.
