BMW's Active Assist is Like a Valet on Your Wrist



BMW has unveiled its automated parking technology this week.  The Remote Valet Parking Assistant features 36-degree collision avoidance with secure position and environment recognition. It will be demonstrated at the trade show in BMW's electric i3.

As the next generation of technology marches forward with wearable devices such as the Samsung Galaxy Gear wristwatch, BMW has been working to integrate its cars with the new advancements in connectivity.

The parking assistant, which utilizes four advanced laser scanners, can identify obstacles such as columns and reliably calculate a route to a parking spot. Based on the time it took to navigate to and locate a spot, it can then calculate how long it will take to return the vehicle to the driver at a set time.

This cool futuristic tech won't arrive within the next couple of years, but the company is working toward a production date as early as 2020.  The caveat is that the features is not something you will be able to use at any street or garage.  It will only work in limited and specialized parking structure.

It does sound like it is one of those ultimate concept that may not see the light of day.
