As part of its 100th year celebrations, BMW this week released its vision for what they expect their autonomous Mini’s, BMW’s and Rolls Royce to look like.
The German brand said it wants to create autonomous cars that connect emotionally with their passengers.
“In the not-too-distant future,” said BMW in a statement, “most vehicles will probably be completely self-driving – people will get around in robots on wheels.”
BMW say they don’t want to create an “anonymous vehicle – but one that is highly personalised.”
BMW released images of what their futuristic self-driving cars might look like, but it’s doubtful that the final product will look anything like the ambitious designs.
The striking cars look like something from a dystopian, science fiction movie.
BMW do, however, plan to make sure that their cars are 100% connected and will have the ability to learn from the drivers.
“They will be working in the background to perform the jobs we delegate to it.”
The brand did conceded that future autonomous cars will need to be intuitive.
“Technology is going to make significant advances, opening up fantastic new possibilities that will allow us to offer the driver even more assistance for an even more intense driving experience.”
