Before BMW's driving assistance systems become reality in the various models, they have to be tested. With the dynamic driving simulator experts can create virtual situations in daily life to check the functionality of these systems. This high-tech testing is necessary to guarantee the passengerīs safety on the road.

I bet even with all that tech she still ran over all the pedestrians, the deer and the little kitter kat.

On a more serious note, that F31 looks to have more flared rear wheel arches

Great technological advancements, but hell, in a few years ill be driven to work by a machine and the thrill of driving will be all of, but a dream of yesterday.

Didn't a report come out a little while ago about Lexus having the most sophisticated simulator in the industry?

This is very cool regardless. I would agree with others members that playing a video game on this thing would be awesome.

I work in the simulation industry, mainly flight simulators, and yes - we play games every now and again...

I was in exactly this simulator a few days ago and took part in a study for two specific assistent systems.
The setup and facility is really impressive but the actual physics engine simulated lacked some kind of realism.
