BMW Connected and Baidu Internet of Vehicles have signed an agreement on a home-to-vehicle cooperation.
This cooperation will further expand the application of BMW Connected and enable customers to access vehicle information by voice control and operate relevant functions easily from their home. For example, they can check fuel levels, lock their car doors via remote control, search for mobility information stored by BMW Connected and plan routes and departure times in advance. The voice control function can be activated simply using certain wake-up words.
