Announced to strengthen for the purpose of contributing to society and customers.
Since 2017, BMW has been holding workshops for children, "Mechanisms of self-driving cars," in collaboration with the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation in Japan nationwide. While autonomous vehicles are becoming a reality, the children of the next generation learned about autonomous driving technology and planned a workshop to consider the future with autonomous driving. We plan to continue working with the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation.
