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.
The image illustrates functionality of technologies that are being developed and tested by Volvo Cars. The technology is currently not available in any Volvo cars.
