A fully automated valet parking service is being developed and tested by Daimler, Bosch and Car2go. The cars will be able to autonomously drive themselves to Car2go clients who are waiting in the park-zone. Once done with the car, the client would go back to his initial zone and the vehicle would drive itself back to its respective allocated space.
In order to implement this system, the cars and car parks should be equipped with cameras, sensors and advanced communication technologies.
Dr. Dirk Hoheisel, Bosch board member, stated that automated parking systems will be ready before automated driving as” the low driving speeds and the information from the car park infrastructure enhances a fast implementation.”
The concern of parking the car is off the list! Let’s hope it will be released soon enough!
