Park Assist goes one step further

Would you ever let your car park itself? Granted we already have a system from Volkswagen, called Park Assist that steers the car while the driver controls the brakes/gas pedal. Lexus also has a similar system (albeit one that doesn't work too well). But today, Volkswagen went a step further, too far for some perhaps. They have come up with Park Assist Vision.

It will do everything the current Park Assist does except -- get this -- you don't even have to be in the car. Yes, you actually get out of your car, press a button on your key fob and watch as the car goes in reverse, back up, and then even shut off the engine and lock the doors for you -- all while you're standing outside the car! It will even correct itself if it can't back into the space in one go. Park Assist Vision will work in any kind of parking situation.

(Thankfully) Park Assist Vision is still in development but don't be surprised to see it in a few years, just as a few years ago, a robot named Stanley managed to navigate an obstacle course just by using satellites and lasers. In 50 years when this is commonplace, we will all be telling our kids how we actually had to park our cars ourselves. They'll think we were daredevils or something.

Watch a truly amazing demonstration after the jump.
