- The 3d mapping technology is used to identify the tiniest of deviations
- The 2017 5-Series is the first car in the world to use this technology
- 3D mapping sensors come with an accuracy of less than 100 m
As seen in the images, the camouflaged 2017 BMW 5-Series is surrounded by robotic arms. These arms are fitted with a number of sensors that are in charge of generating a 3D image of the car which serves as a foundation for a three-dimensional data model. The model comes with an accuracy of less than 100 µm (0.1 millimeters) and allows the car maker to spot even the miniscule amount of deviations quite early on in the development process. The G30 5-Series is the first car in the world to make use of this technology.
The 2017 BMW 5-Series is slated for an official debut at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit next January for the sedan version, and will be followed up by a Station Wagon and Gran Tourismo (GT) versions, of which, the latter will make it to India apart from the sedan. The launch of the 2017 5-Series will be followed up with the introduction of the all-new and powerful M5 later next year that will come with All-Wheel Drive. The new 5-Series can be expected to make it to India in the second half of 2017.
