BMW Driving Simulator.

"Before BMW´s driving assistance systems become reality in the various models, they have to be tested. With the dynamic driving simulator experts can create virtual situations in daily life to check the functionality of these systems. This high-tech testing is necessary to guarantee the passenger´s safety on the road."

Thanks for link João,

The last Ford I rented had terrible visibility with the window reinforcement bar blocking much of my driver side view sight. Nice to see how BMW is trying catch potential design problems like this earlier.

CSR’s Sirf Technologies division and WifiSLAM claim to have figured out how to map indoor locations when you’re walking with your mobile phone inside a building. I really hope that we get to see this work in practice (with good precision) in 2013. 

Having the ability to get to less than a meter precision inside a building is a very powerful technology breakthrough that would enable many more workflows and usecases. Currently GPS/Wifi is not precice enough for many workflows (only getting to around 3 meters at best).

A fairly nice example of AR for the Automotive. However i still feel this only just touches the surface of what can be done. I would also like to see more VR included in such brochures (for example, being able to "sit" in the Audi and look around the car from the inside). I'd also love to see more examples outside of sales and marketing for example in service and support (eg. showing how a part in a part catalog can be installed). 

If you are interested in something like this (or better). Contact me jed[at]4dpipeline.com, we are experienced with all the major AR SDKs and technologies.
