BMW’s entrant comes from LA-based BMW Group DesignworksUSA. The team chose Los Angeles as their futuristic setting. Their E-Patrol (Human-Drone Pursuit Vehicle) design was developed based on BMW's prediction of more traffic and faster vehicles in LA's future. Given that the designs are also judged on environmental factors, it goes without saying that many of the vehicles get their power from alternative fuel sources, including BMW's E-Patrol.
The design’s main focus is drone technology. The primary vehicle can deploy three drones for pursuit under heavy traffic conditions. The officer has the option of sending out either a flying or single-wheeled drone to chase suspects and keep tabs on them (much like the police vehicles in 2002's Minority Report).BMW 2012-11-21T13:09:43-05:00
