Sorry if already posted but this is ridiculous!

Watch the video - this is not the parallel parking feature,

''Audi's automatic parking systems operate by means of either ultrasound or cameras, which display images via the onboard monitor. One particularly convenient solution is park assist. When backing into a parking space, it performs all the necessary steering movements; it can handle both parallel parking and parking perpendicular to the street. The system finds a parking space with ultrasound sensors that scan the roadside in two dimensions while driving at moderate speed. The system notifies the driver via a message in the display once the sensors have found a space which is large enough...."

its cool but kind of stupid. its faster to find a place yourself and park. you never know when something may go wrong and it ends up crashing at full speed.

*shrug*

I think it's kinda cool.

I'd probably have a hard time trusting it, but I bet it's up to the task and sometimes finding a parking slot can be time consuming which is ridiculous when you're in a hurry.

Meh... I use public transit, so no parking worries for me! :p

Well, guess what, I bet the parking mode has a hardcoded max speed implemented.
But yeah, apart from that, I'd always have a weird feeling until I get my car back... Maybe add a camera mode to the app? :p

other cars have had this for ages, my mate bought a car two years ago that parked itself.
nothing new here.
it actually worked very well, parked perfectly every time aswell!

edit: also this ad is playing it up, obviously it only does it with you in the car lol. Then if something did go wrong (highly unlikely) you just press the brake/take control.
My friends car had cameras too so it was a little easier to trust since you could see how close you were.

Truly amazing sittting in the car watching it parralel park itself into a space not much bigger than the car

I did watch it... I know about the cars... you clearly can NOT see me what I was doing. That video was showing me that a lady parked her car then she used her device to let the car park itself in the garage and then end of the working day, the car came out of the garage so she goes out.

Ford has it, Audi has it... you know? Almost every cars have it. That feature and auto drive do not excite me, whoope deee doo.

I visit cars/trucks websites and I used to have the magazines for awhile before I quit them so I read them on their websites.

I have seen a video that Google has their own self driving car which let the blind man sit in the driver seat.

I have seen these videos before these users post them on the forum.

Have you been to my place? No? Then from now on, please do not say that to me or anyone.

Oh come on dude.

"almost every car company"

Maybe among the biggest brands. Do you know how many car brands there are?

And don't get so upset about a single line of doubt about you watching the video. What's the matter? I didn't insult you, did I?

Yeah I dunno what this guy is even talking about, there's a huge difference between automatic parallel park and what this car is doing.. It's not even the same thing. Nowhere near it.
