Finding your way to the drivers seat in a dark parking lot can oftentimes be an ordeal that might have you dropping your keys, which is an experience drivers of the new BMW 7-series will never have to worry about again. Featuring an innovative light system that creates an almost carpet-like illumination on the ground to guide you to the driver's side door, the feature is thanks to the innovative work from researchers at Fraunhofer University in Germany.
The lighting system on the BMW 7-series is simple enough in design that you might wonder why it hasn't been implemented sooner; a strip of lights is added to the underside of the vehicle and, when activated, will offer the perfect welcome matt for jumping in your ride.
