Robot Car Parks Itself

Park the Beamer by Bot.

Driving your car into a cramped parking space can be a harrowing experience, but BMW says it has developed a robotic parking system to solve the problem.

The luxury carmaker’s parking-assist technology will park your car for you as you stand outside and watch, according to BMW during the demo of a working prototype at its Munich headquarters this week.

All you do is press down on a remote-control button and your Beamer parks itself.

The parking system is very straightforward to operate, said Raymond Freymann, managing director of BMW group research and technology.

“You just press a button,” Freymann said. “It is something simple, but something that is really smart.”

The company says the technology will be available within three years.
