We head to the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, CA to see how BMW is using vehicle sensor technology to help athletes prepare for the London 2012 Olympics. BMW's Velocity Measurement System uses a 3D camera to capture and analyze performance data in realtime to help optimize each training session. Can this 3D machine vision technology help drivers as well? We stop by BMW's Silicon Valley tech offices to find out.

Ed. The athlete who appears in the video is Funmi Kemi Jimoh. The video has been updated to reflect this change.

      Gotten to the point where I just don't care about the olympics any more. It is no longer about the purity of the athlete. It is hype, advertising and money.
