While it is not common yet, we have been hearing about autonomous parking for some time now and Volkswagen plans to offer it on their consumer vehicles starting from 2020.
According to Volkswagen, autonomous parking would make things more convenient for their customers and that is why they want to make it more accessible in the near future.
The system will be available at multi-story parking garages first where the vehicles will have their own traffic flow so that they won’t be mixed up with the human-driven vehicles. The vehicles will use map data and visual markers to navigate. The next them will be to have these vehicles operate in mixed traffic.
The ultimate goal would be for the vehicles to be able to park in any parking area on its own. Of course, the aim is to make it happen by 2020 but we will have to wait and see if that is going to happen or not.
