BMW has become a part of the Internet of Things with their new ConnectedDrive technology. The new service comes with many features to add to your driving experience. ConnectedDrive includes apps, driver assistance, and even automated driving.
The app selection includes many options from all your favorite music apps to connected home services and weather updates. These apps integrate with your phone and other internet devices so you can keep track of things in your home no matter where you are.
Driver assistance comes with several features to make your driving experience more comfortable and convenient. Active Cruise Control will automatically slow down if there is a change in speed of vehicles in front of you. There are a few different systems that aid in parking either by automatically parking while you are behind the driver seat or through a remote control while you are out of the car. It also has lane warnings that alert you if the car has started drifting into another lane or there is a vehicle in your blind spot.
Automated Driving is another feature that navigates the vehicle for you within a certain speed limit. The car is using laser scanners, gps, cameras, radar, and ultrasound technology to stay hyper aware of the surroundings in order to get you where you need to go safely.
The ConnectedDrive software is very new and still has a few things to fix. It was found that the software is not difficult to hack and makes it easy for hackers to get a hold of information about the car and the owner and manipulate the information. BMW has made a statement that the issues were fixed in development and the vehicle and driver security is intact.
