The car can pretty much handle itself compared to normal cars. This BMW self-driving car does not need to be immediately controlled. However, if to does encounter a problem it will need a driver's assistance, according to Automotive News.

Level 4. A car under this level is a fully automated self-driving car. It can drive passengers on one whole trip but if it is faced under worst conditions and environment, it will need a driver's help.

Level 5. This will be the ultimate self-driving car because it does not require any driver assistance. It can navigate cities and highway roads with a breeze, Tech Crunch reported.

Features. The car comes with a camera and Intel depth sensor. The BMW self-driving car also comes with Loomo, a Segway parking robot. Aside from that the car has BMW open mobility cloud, this cool feature allows passengers to interact with the car using gestures.

According to CNBC, this car liberates people from having to keep an eye on the road. It is easier for passengers to do multitask compared driving normal cars.
