BMW on the cutting edge of innovation yet again


The all-new BMW 7 Series is the world’s first series-produced car that owners will be able to maneuver in or out of forward-parking spaces or garages without anyone at the wheel. The Remote Control Parking function allows the driver to conveniently hop out of the vehicle before parking it. The driver activates the remote-controlled parking function from outside the vehicle via the BMW display key. The entire parking procedure is monitored by Park Distance Control (PDC), the Parking assistant and the Surround View sensors. In order to use the remote-controlled parking function, the vehicle has to be straight and centered, facing the parking space or garage. During the parking procedure the driver can bring the vehicle to a controlled stop if necessary. Once parked, the engine can be switched off via the key. And when it’s time to move on, the engine can also be restarted via the key. (via BMW)
