Self Driving BMW M235i Can Drift

BMW showed off their self driving car this week at the Consumer Electronics Show and as you can see in this video if you want the extra thrill you can program it to drift into a corner. Will there ever be driverless auto races?

I think the LiDAR is in the lower part of the front grill, but that is going to really limit the field of view. In any case if you want performance and driverless BMW can deliver.

  1. The original article says “360-degree LIDAR” so either they’re wrong or BMW hid the LIDAR units very well. One picture shows something interesting right in front of the rear wheel but that would be a terrible environment for a sensor and it’s more likely a stock BMW lift point.
