Munich. The BMW Group was an early driving force for the digital transformation of the automotive industry, responding quickly to constantly changing customer needs. Today, the company is a pioneer in the development of intelligent, connected and autonomous vehicles, as well as integration of digital services. In the current digital transformation, both the BMW Group and the automotive industry benefit from ongoing research in the field of computer engineering.

The BMW Group is creating the Digitalization and IT Research Award to pay tribute to outstanding contributions to research by independent persons, research teams and institutions. The award recognises ground-breaking research results in software development and information technology in the areas of artificial intelligence, big data, internet of things, cybersecurity, connectivity and autonomous driving.

BMW Group experts from various digital disciplines nominate potential candidates, with the winner chosen by an in-house jury. The most important criteria are that the research results have a practical application and a positive impact on the BMW Group’s business processes.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here:
