Our heavyweight champion, Balázs, or better known as Assur on the premises is the news writer of the mother site, totalcar.hu. Oh yes, he’s an automotive engineer too. They say there isn’t a data that has ever escaped his mind, all we know is that he can drop into any conversation about any car that was made after the war, and he’ll be able to add a ton of details you won’t ever be able to find in books. He has been thinking of selling his longserving Volvo for years, so he always has some used car adverts open on his computer, just in case. Has a wife and two (almost grown-up) children.

BMW’s latest system can even perform perfect drifts.

While introducing the i3 connected to the smart watch, BMW also gave a glimpse of the recent stages of the development of self-driving cars at the Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show.

Their new system, which is said to be effective even on race tracks, has been built into the M235i to be launched soon. Judging by the video the the prototypes can run through a high-speed slalom, perform precise lane changes, and slide around corners, without any driver intervention . Thanks to the sophisticated electronics, on a race track the car can even calculate the ideal curves, like in a video game. The GPS module was reportedly borrowed from the most modern military rocket control systems.

The car in the video is equipped with radar and camera system, the latter being considered more helpful by the developers as the camera is not only cheaper than the radar, but „because of the wide angle it is more reliable in noticing objects out of the field of sight of the driver”

Talking about German cars and robots, it's obvious that the in-car entertainment system of the above car should only play one song all day long:

Full circle. The beautiful story of the Trabant that found its way home.

I would never have thought I’d see this car here.
