Mercedes-Benz self-driving valet cars will park themselves in Germany

Standard

Eventually, Mercedes plans to have the service recognize any Mercedes-Benz vehicle with the proper systems after it drives into a special valet zone in the parking garage. The parking system would communicate with eh car, syncing with the sensors built into the garage to complete the parking job.There are no headaches circling a cramped garage for spots, no handing of keys to expensive luxury cars over to strangers, no memorizing parking lot zones — just a few taps on a smartphone, a quick ride, and patrons are free to explore the museum.  Parking is just one of many mindless driving tasks self-driving cars are slated to eliminate in the near future, not just removing the banal task of parking but also eliminating the need to park at or close to your destination since you’ll be able to simply summon your car when you’re ready to go home.Bosch’s system can work today since it doesn’t entirely depend on the car’s self-driving systems to get around. The car communicates with the sensor system built into the parking garage itself, so driving systems of varying sophistication will theoretically be able to navigate the space with equal precision
