The modified 2-Series Coupe and 6-Series Gran Coupe self-driving cars, went on show at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
Both BMW cars are fitted with radar, Lidar system, sensors and cameras, making driving decisions, according to the environment.
The cars can change lanes, slide round corners and even perform a slalom at high speeds without any intervention from the driver.
“Even when deliberately provoked into oversteer – the clearest way of highlighting a vehicle’s dynamic limit – the highly automated prototype follows its path safely and along almost identical lines time after time.”
