Driverless car parking system developed

Drivers will be able to leave their car in front of the car park and use a smartphone app to trigger the parking process. The vehicle will connect with the car park’s server and drive itself to the designated space. While in the garage, the car can also be programmed to go to a charging station. Upon returning, the driver uses the same app to summon the car – fully charged and ready to go.
Adding her thoughts, European Commission Vice-President Neelie Kroes said: “We need to think ahead and find smarter ways to move to save time, money and our environment. We need research on new technologies – and how to combine them – to get practical solutions. The V-CHARGE system goes in the right direction, and I look forward to using it.”
