From touchscreens and voice-activated controls to advanced driver-assistance systems, today’s cars are full of cutting-edge features that make driving more exciting. With a simple touch or voice command, you can seamlessly navigate through music playlists, effortlessly access navigation guidance, and enjoy a host of interactive features that make your time on the road a truly enjoyable and immersive adventure.
BMW’s eighth-generation 5 series has now introduced eye-guided lane changes and revealed new electric models. This has allowed drivers to effortlessly change lanes using just their eyes. With Active Lane Change Assist, part of the Highway Assistant Level 2 driver assistance suite, drivers receive prompts for suggested lane changes. By simply looking at the side view mirror, the vehicle automatically maneuvers into the new lane, ensuring safety precautions are met.
How Does It Work?
Unlike other systems that require the physical engagement of the turn signal stalk, BMW’s eye-controlled steering eliminates that step, making the process seamless and intuitive. While some people do express concerns about the safety of eye-guided steering, BMW aims to demonstrate the reliability and effectiveness of this innovative technology.

With a starting price of $67,795, the electrified 5 Series demonstrates BMW’s commitment to sustainability and driving innovation.
