April 6 — At BMW’s Research and Innovation Center in Munich, an experimental high-tech safety system is under development. It’s called 360-degree collision avoidance and it can prevent a car from crashing into any stationary object. The precise laser sensors and sophisticated algorithms involved could be a step towards a totally self-driving car – and a future without traffic accidents. Bloomberg’s Sam Grobart visited BMW to take the prototype for a test drive. (Video by: Alan Jeffries, Justin Beach)
