Volvo Car Group has developed an ingenious concept for autonomous parking. Combining autonomous driving with detection and auto brake for other objects makes it possible for the self-parking car to interact safely with other cars and pedestrians in the car park. Speed and braking are adapted for smooth integration in the parking environment. The driver uses a mobile phone application to activate the autonomous parking and then walks away from the car. The vehicle uses sensors to localise and navigate to a free parking space. The procedure is reversed when the driver comes back to pick up the car.
