This brief article reports on the advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) and connectivity features of the new BMW 7 Series vehicles. The author focuses on gesture control used for the iDrive operating system. With gesture control, the driver can accept or reject phone calls and adjust the audio volume by moving their hand in a certain way in front of the center console of the vehicle. Another gesture can be individualized by the driver to certain functions. The BMW 7 Series also includes an iDrive touchscreen, voice commands, a head-up display, a navigation system with real-time traffic information and automatic map updates, adaptive LED headlights, and two different ADAS packages. The vehicle series also has a full complement of passive safety equipment.
