THE NEXT 100 YEARS: BMW VISION NEXT 100 creates Asian debut.

Posted on 05. May, 2016 by in BMW Canada

Beijing. 2016 sees a BMW Group applaud its
centenary – underneath a sign THE NEXT 100 YEARS. As a centenary year
progresses, a BMW Group continues to demeanour initial and inaugural on the
future, exploring a doubt of what particular mobility will look
like over a entrance decades. The BMW Group is bringing a prophesy of
a destiny to life by prophesy vehicles like a BMW VISION NEXT
100, that is celebrating a Asian entrance in Beijing from 6 to 15 May 2016.

The BMW VISION NEXT 100 stands for a brand’s eminent driving
pleasure. In a future, BMW drivers will still wish to spend many of
a time they are in their automobile during a wheel. In a BMW VISION NEXT
100, a motorist will sojourn resolutely in a focus, with constant
connectivity, digital comprehension and state-of-the-art technologies
accessible for support. But that’s not all: a BMW VISION NEXT 100
will spin a motorist into a “Ultimate Driver”. So even nonetheless the
universe might good be changing, Sheer Driving Pleasure is here to stay –
and will be some-more heated than ever before.

The Asian entrance of a BMW VISION NEXT 100 is partial of a travelling
muster and eventuality height “Iconic Impulses. The BMW Group Future
Experience”. The destiny prophesy presented during a muster reaches far
over anything a short-term resolution could offer, providing a
multifaceted and relocating preview of stirring trends that will
impact not usually a automotive attention nonetheless a bland lives as a whole.

The muster “Iconic Impulses. The BMW Group Future Experience”
will run from 6 to 15 May 2015 during a Ullens Center for Contemporary
Art (UCCA), 4 Jiuxianqiao Rd, Chaoyang, Beijing, China.

BMW VISION NEXT 100: Sheer Driving Pleasure of a destiny –
What will it demeanour like?

Trying to picture how we will live and get around in a destiny is as
severe as it is fascinating. How will social, mercantile and living
conditions change? And what will be a impact on a mobility? What
sparkling new possibilities will new technologies bring? And what
outcome will digitalisation and connectivity have on a automotive requirements?

To symbol a centenary year in 2016, a BMW Group is looking further
brazen than common with a array of Vision Vehicles designed to
expect and respond to people’s destiny mobility needs. Over the
entrance years, mobility will turn increasingly diverse. In the
not-too-distant future, many vehicles will substantially be completely
self-driving – people will get around in robots on wheels. So, given
these developments, how will we clear a existence of vehicles by
BMW, a brand for whom a particular and Sheer Driving
Pleasure are a concentration of everything? And how will BMW’s code values
interpret into a future?

In building a BMW VISION NEXT 100, a categorical pattern was to
emanate not an unknown automobile nonetheless one that is rarely personalised
and entirely geared to accommodate a driver’s any need – since a very
romantic tie between a BMW and a motorist is something we want
to retain. For the
BMW VISION NEXT 100, a design
group privately took into comment all a trends and technological
developments that will be many applicable to BMW in a decades ahead.
But they also took many of their cues from innovations and designs of
a past. The pivotal cause throughout, however, was something that has
always been customary of a BMW brand: a enterprise to be uncompromising
in a destiny concentration on technologies and patron value.

Adrian outpost Hooydonk, Head of BMW Group Design: “If, as a designer,
we are means to suppose something, there’s a good possibility it could one
day turn reality. So a pattern with a BMW VISION NEXT 100 was
to arise a destiny unfolding that people would rivet with. Technology
is going to make poignant advances, opening adult illusory new
possibilities that will concede us to offer a motorist even more
assistance for an even some-more heated pushing experience. “My personal
perspective is that record should be as discerning as probable to operate
and knowledge so that destiny interactions between human, appurtenance and
vicinity turn seamless. The BMW VISION NEXT 100 shows how we
intend to figure this future.”


Four proposals underpinning a BMW VISION NEXT 100:


A genuine BMW is always driver-focused.

In new months and years, a biggest stream trend in the
automotive attention has turn so widespread that it’s no longer a
doubt of ‘if’ nonetheless ‘when’: unconstrained driving. The BMW Group also
believes that BMW drivers will be means to let their cars do a work –
nonetheless usually when a motorist wants. The BMW VISION NEXT 100 stays a
genuine BMW, charity an heated knowledge of Sheer Driving Pleasure.


Artificial comprehension and discerning record turn one.

Moving into a future, vehicles will be entirely connected, and digital
record will turn so normal that it will interfuse roughly every
area of a lives. Increasing digitalisation will lead to a physical
and digital worlds merging some-more and more. Artificial comprehension will
learn from us, expecting many of a wishes and operative divided in the
credentials to perform a jobs we nominee to it. The proceed humans and
technologies correlate will be transformed: screens and touchscreens
will be transposed by some-more discerning forms of human-machine
communication and interaction. Better yet: record will turn some-more human.


New materials open adult monumental opportunities.

In a future, how will cars be manufactured? At some point, presses
that punch out hundreds of thousands of steel collection might good become
archaic – a use of CO might already be a initial denote of the
sea-change that is approaching in a universe of automotive materials and
production. Technologies such as fast prolongation and 4D printing
will furnish not components or objects nonetheless intelligent, networked
materials and could shortly reinstate compulsory collection to open up
unimagined possibilities in pattern and engineering.

Mobility will sojourn an romantic experience.

Vehicles by BMW have never been quite practical or merely a means
of removing from one place to a next. Far more, a BMW is about
looking to a subsequent hook in a road, feeling a energy of a engine
and enjoying a clarity of speed; it’s about a feeling experience,
a adrenaline rush or that insinuate impulse during that a tour begins,
be it for a sole motorist or one travelling with a tighten crony or loved
one. Moving into a future, that’s not set to change – since the
romantic knowledge of mobility is resolutely bound in a collective
corporate memory. By gripping a motorist resolutely in a foreground, the
worsen this romantic knowledge in an rare way.


BMW VISION NEXT 100: A automobile for destiny mobility.

  • From motorist to “Ultimate Driver” – by digital intelligence.
  • “Alive Geometry” enables discerning driver-vehicle interaction.
  • “Boost” and “Ease” pushing modes capacitate driver- or
    vehicle-controlled operation.
  • “Companion”: The intelligent digital partner connects motorist and car.
  • Trademark BMW exterior. • Materials of a future.


From motorist to Ultimate Driver – by digital intelligence.

In a future, BMW drivers will still wish to spend many of a time
they are in their automobile during a wheel. In a BMW VISION NEXT 100, the
motorist will sojourn resolutely in a focus, with consistent connectivity,
digital comprehension and state-of-the-art technologies accessible for
support. But that’s not all: the
BMW VISION NEXT 100 will turn
a motorist into a Ultimate Driver. So even nonetheless a universe might well
be changing, Sheer Driving Pleasure is here to stay – and will be more
heated than ever before.

In conceptualizing a BMW VISION NEXT 100, a starting prove was the
interior. In a years ahead, a driver’s wellbeing will become
increasingly important, and rather than merely feeling they are in a
appurtenance that drives itself, they should clarity that they are sitting in
one that was privately designed for them. This thought gave arise to an
pattern in that a cab seems quite atmospheric compared
with a altogether distance of a automobile while maintaining a typical
extraneous lines of a BMW. Despite a domed interior, a BMW VISION
NEXT 100 retains a now recognizable jaunty conformation of a
BMW saloon.

The pattern of a interior permits several modes of operation: Boost
mode, in that a motorist is during a controls, and Ease mode, in which
a motorist can lay behind and let a automobile take over. In Ease, the
automobile becomes a place of shelter with copiousness of space, agreeable
lighting and a gentle atmosphere. In Boost, a motorist takes over
and advantages from a pointed and discerning support offering by the
vehicle. All a time, a automobile is training some-more and some-more about the
chairman during a wheel, interjection to a feeling and digital intelligence,
that a BMW Group calls a Companion. The Companion progressively
learns to offer a right kind of support to renovate a motorist into
a Ultimate Driver.

A unequivocally critical component of a Vision Vehicle is another innovation
famous as Alive Geometry, a likes of that have never before been
seen in a car. It consists of a kind of three-dimensional sculpture
that works both inside and outward a vehicle.


Alive Geometry enables driver-vehicle interaction.

Alive Geometry consists of roughly 800 relocating triangles that are set
into a instrument row and into certain areas of a side panels.
They work in 3 dimensions, communicating unequivocally directly with the
motorist by their movements, that are some-more like gestures than
two-dimensional depictions on a display. Even a smallest peripheral
transformation is obvious to a driver. In multiple with a Head-Up
display, Alive Geometry singly fuses a analogue with a digital.

The triangles work in many a same proceed as a group of birds in
tranquil flight, their concurrent movements behaving as signals that
are simply distinct to those inside a car. Combined with the
Head-Up display, they engage a motorist in a form of preconscious
communication, where an discerning vigilance predicts an imminent
real-time event.

Various approaches can already be seen now that seem to confirm
a feasibility of this solution. Rapid prototyping and rapid
manufacturing, for example, are gaining significance all a time and
are expected to be hackneyed 30 years from now. Although during benefaction it
stays formidable to suppose how hundreds of little triangles could be
concurrent to make Alive Geometry work, in a years ahead, it will
be possible, as today’s customary automobile prolongation methods are
replaced. In a destiny it will turn possibly to furnish distant more
formidable and stretchable forms. This is why, in a context of the
Group refers to 4D printing, a slight that adds a fourth turn to
components: a organic one. In a years ahead, printed parts
done in this proceed will directly confederate functions that today
have to be designed and constructed alone before being incorporated
into a whole.

At a moment, a digital universe is strongly related to displays; the
subsequent step will be organic LEDs – in other words, displays that can
openly change shape. However a Vision Vehicle suggests there will at
some prove be no some-more displays during all. Instead a whole windscreen
will offer as a hulk display, directly in front of a driver. In the
destiny a digital and earthy worlds will combine considerably, as is
also voiced by Alive Geometry, for example, in a proceed the
analogue dashboard interacts with a digital Head-Up Display in the
front windscreen.


Boost and Ease pushing modes for driver- or vehicle-controlled operations.

In Boost and Ease mode alike, a elements and technologies of the
automobile make for a many heated or loose pushing experience,
depending on what is required. Transitioning between modes is
considerable and ideally orchestrated, and Alive Geometry remains
applicable throughout. In Boost, when a motorist is concentrating fully
on a road, Alive Geometry highlights a ideal pushing line or
probable branch prove and warns of approaching vehicles. Rather than
creation a motorist expostulate faster, this kind of support sets out to make
them expostulate noticeably better. In addition, discerning feedback has a
some-more earthy and evident impact than a robotic voice or
instructions on a screen. In Ease mode, on a other hand, Alive
Geometry is some-more watchful in a movements, informing occupants about
a highway brazen and any acceleration and braking manoeuvres that are
about to happen.

In Boost mode, a whole automobile focuses on a driver, offering
intelligent support to maximize a pushing experience. The chair and
steering circle change position, and a centre console moves to become
some-more strongly oriented toward a driver. As a tour proceeds, the
motorist can correlate with a automobile around gesticulate control.

The hit analogue BMW Head-Up Display of a destiny uses the
whole windscreen to promulgate with a driver. In Boost mode, it
focuses exclusively on what unequivocally matters to a driver: information
such as a ideal line, branch prove and speed. In addition, full
connectivity, intelligent sensors and permanent information sell allow
a Head-Up Display to beget a digital picture of a vehicle’s
surroundings. In misty conditions, for example, this means a driver
can advantage from information such as vehicles channel ahead, before
they indeed come into sight. In addition, by training some-more and more
about a driver, a complement invariably improves, concentrating on
formulating during all times a many heated and personal pushing knowledge possible.

The transition to Ease mode brings about a finish change of
interior ambience. The steering circle and centre console redress and
a headrests pierce to one side to emanate a loose and welcoming
atmosphere. The seats and doorway panels combine to form a singular unit,
permitting a motorist and passengers to lay during a slight angle. This
creates it easier for them to face any other and lay in a some-more relaxed
position for easier communications. Meanwhile, a Head-Up Display
offers occupants personalised calm along with a information and
party they desire.

Depending on a pushing mode, a concentration of a automobile changes,
concentrating on essentials for a motorist in Boost mode, and the
vicinity and atmosphere in Ease mode, highlighting a impressive
landscapes or buildings of seductiveness that a automobile is flitting by, for instance.

Whether a automobile is in Boost or Ease mode is also clearly apparent
to other highway users as a heading kidney grille, double headlights
and L-shaped back lights act as communication tool. Their different
colours of light prove that mode a automobile is now in.



Companion: The intelligent digital partner connects motorist and

The Companion is symbolised by a tiny sculptural component which
represents a driver-vehicle connection. Shaped like a large, cut
gemstone, it is positioned in a centre of a dashboard, just
underneath a windscreen, where it symbolises a intelligence,
connectivity and accessibility of the
BMW VISION NEXT 100. It also
represents a consistent sell of data: a some-more it learns about the
owners and their mobility habits, a smarter it becomes. At some stage
it knows a motorist good adequate to automatically perform slight tasks
for them and offer suitable recommendation when needed. Irrespective of the
automobile itself, consistent training creates a Companion increasingly
profitable to a owner.

The Companion also plays an critical purpose in driver-vehicle
communications when a automobile transitions from Boost to Ease mode. While
a motorist concentrates on a highway in Boost mode, a Companion
stays prosaic in a dashboard. But when a BMW VISION NEXT 100 takes
control in Ease, it rises adult to emanate an interface with the
windscreen. A vigilance light tells a motorist that a automobile is prepared for
entirely unconstrained driving. For other highway users, a Companion has a
identical function, signalling by a possess light as good as that of
a automobile that a automobile is handling in programmed mode. In certain
trade situations, a Companion is in manifest hit with other road
users, assisting pedestrians to cranky a highway by means of a green
light slope on a front of a vehicle.


Trademark BMW exterior.

The pattern of a BMW Vision Vehicle is characterised by a brew of
coupé-type sportiness and a energetic magnificence of a sedan. At 4.90
meters prolonged and 1.37 meters high, it has compress extraneous dimensions.
Inside, however, it has a measure of a oppulance BMW sedan.

The vast wheels are positioned during a outdoor edges of a body,
giving a automobile a energetic position that is a heading of BMW. When
it comes to aerodynamics, extraneous Alive Geometry contributes to an
superb effect: when a wheels pivot as a automobile is steered,
a bodywork keeps them lonesome as if it were a stretchable skin,
easy their several positions. The innovative pattern of the
BMW VISION NEXT 100 gives it an intensely low drag fellow of 0.18.

The extraneous of a automobile is copper in colour, designed to
underscore a thought that BMW vehicles of a destiny should appear
technical nonetheless still have a regard about them – as symbolised by the
tighten links between a automobile and a driver.

This attribute starts as shortly as a motorist approaches the
vehicle: intelligent sensor technologies automatically open a wing
doors. To give a motorist some-more space to enter and exit, a steering
circle is flush with a dashboard. Once seated, a full operation of
systems is activated by drumming on a BMW trademark in a center of the
dashboard. The doorway closes, a steering circle comes forward, and the
pushing knowledge begins.


Materials of a future.

The designers of a BMW VISION NEXT 100 essentially used fabrics made
from recycled or renewable materials. The manifest and non-visible
CO components, such as a side panels, are done from residues
from normal CO twine production. In a future, a choice of
materials will turn even some-more critical around a pattern and
prolongation process.

With time, other new materials will also be combined into a mix,
permitting opposite automobile shapes to emerge. To save resources and
support some-more tolerable manufacturing, reduction use will be done of wood
and leather while innovative materials and a accompanying new
possibilities in pattern and prolongation gradually come to a fore.
This proceed is already being exemplified by a use of high-quality
textiles and simply recyclable mono-materials and a rejecting of
leather in a interior of a BMW VISION NEXT 100.
