BMW has always been known to take the lead when it comes to new, innovative technology for cars; however, their newest development, the ConnectedDrive Connect System is the most cutting-edge product to date.

The ConnectedDrive Connect System is one of BMW's most practical inventions to allow drivers to relax while behind the wheel. The car uses four types of sensor systems: a radar, cameras, laser scanners and ultrasound distance sensors to navigate on the road and drive itself. The car is able to adhere to all speed limits, ensuring it will never be pulled over. It also has lane-merging technology and has the ability to pass slower vehicles. It was built to still look like a normal 5 series BMW.
