The BMW Group will be present at the upcoming 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) at the Las Vegas Convention Center, showcasing BMW ConnectedDrive and announcing its future plans for highly automated driving.

BMW will also feature its all-electric BMW i3.

The German brand explained BMW ConnectedDrive focuses on the link between the driver, vehicle and outside world through the use of an expanding range of assistance systems, as well as infotainment and entertainment features. BMW ConnectedDrive Driver Assistance systems include navigation and traffic assistance and concierge services.

Through the BMW i Remote app, drivers can share information with the vehicle at any time via their smartphone, including the amount of charge left on a BMW vehicle. The Apps for Automotive technology by BMW enables drivers to use smartphone applications to connect with the car and provides the opportunity to dictate and send text messages via voice or text.

The BMW Group also said it will reveal details of its current research and development project for highly automated driving, which is designed to increase safety, comfort and efficiency for the driver and traffic system.

Will you be in Vegas early January? Along with the exhibits at BMW’s stand, test drives of the BMW i3 will be offered, taking place between Tuesday, January 7 and Friday, January 10 at Silver Lot 3.
