Watch an Awesome Audi A7 Actually Go and Park Itself In a Car Park

By Sam Gibbs on at

OK, so you've seen cars able to parallel park themselves with you working the pedals in the car, but have you seen one actually drive off into a car park, find a space, park itself, and then come and pick you up again when you're done, all by itself? This is awesome.

Self-driving cars are definitely the future, and I'm not sure I'm entirely happy about it. I like driving. No, scrub that, I love driving. There's nothing quite like getting behind the wheel, but there are definitely some types of driving I could do without. Commuting is one of them, and so what Volvo's doing with car trains sound like an awesome idea. Parking is another.

Who actually enjoys driving round a car park, hunting for a space? Exactly. No one. So I can 100 per cent get behind this awesome self-parking A7 from Audi. It's like having your own personal valet with you, without having to trust the keys to your pride and joy to some spotty oik. [YouTube via Jalopnik]
