15.07.2016 // Test drive with the BMWi3

In the second test phase with the BMWi3, possible application scenarios were played through in a closed passenger cabin. The focus here was on the review of the spatial conditions and handling of digital media, such as the interaction with screens or smart devices as well as carrying out every day tasks such as eating and drinking.

Just as in the first test phase with the BMWi3, driving without a visibility of traffic or the driver proved to be very uncomplicated. Since only a short period of acclimatisation was needed for the vehicle, or rather the driver, to inspire confidence in the participants, the autonomous vehicle can be used as a basis for the pending concept phase.
