Volvo car Group demonstrates the self-parking car
Volvo cars has developed an ingenious concept for autonomous parking, where the car finds and parks in a vacant space all by itself. The smart, driverless car also interacts safely and smoothly with other cars and pedestrians in the car park.
By using a mobile phone application, the driver can activate the Autonomous Parking and then simply walk away from the car. The car will in turn use sensors—connected to transmitters in the road infrastructure—to localise and navigate to a free parking space, and later, back to the driver.
Moreover, by combining autonomous driving with detection and auto brake features, the car can safely interact with other vehicles and pedestrians in the car park.
This is one of several steps in Volvo car Groups aim is to gain leadership in the field of autonomous driving by moving beyond concepts and actually delivering pioneering technologies that will reach the customers.
