It sounds like Science Fiction, but in Stuttgart it works already: A motorist can get off at the car Park entrance out of his vehicle, once on the phone click and then the car searches for a Parking space. And if the owner wants to go away again, he presses once more on the phone and his car comes to exit out of danger.
car manufacturer Daimler and the technology group Bosch to experiment with this technique in the car Park of the Mercedes-Museum since 2017. With two vehicles driving in there with five kilometers per hour. Although there is not yet a production car, the mastered the technique, nevertheless, Daimler and Bosch, announced on Tuesday a "milestone": you now have to get the permission of the authorities, to operate your System without a security driver a driver that engages only in risky situations or otherwise controlling people.
This approval is according to Daimler and Bosch, the world's first of this kind. For the developer this is a further step in the direction of fully automated car, even if the regulatory requirements for series-production vehicles are not yet defined.
insurance with less damage
by 2020, the two companies want to sell their technology to other operators of Parking garages. Discussions are on-going, the interest was "very great," says the company. The goal of the tinkerers is that you can request, for example, after a plane trip in his car via cell phone while waiting for his Luggage. The car comes from the car Park to when you leave the airport building. When the technology and laws make this Vision possible, is still completely open.
Still, operators of Parking garages and even insurance companies are very interested in this so called Automated Valet Parking (AVP). In the garages of one-fifth of the space saving it, because the cars can be more closely placed to each other, if with the new technology, according to the Einparkieren no driver more the door to get out needs to open. And the insurers expect a lot less damage. "40 percent of all Vehicle claims are Park accidents", say the makers of Bosch, and Daimler. These damages would be completely eliminated if the technology takes Rank with their Sensors.
Other auto manufacturers
offer "Automated Einparkieren is much safer," stresses Carsten Hämmerling of Daimler. In the two years of the pilot project in Stuttgart, there was not a single dangerous Situation. According to the approval of the government Presidium of Stuttgart and the country Ministry of transport, the cars are expected to drive, although a maximum of ten kilometres per hour, but the company gave themselves up to so far, with five Km/h is satisfied. "With more experience, we want to be faster," says Rolf Nicodemus Bosch.

try out The AVP car Park technology applies a completely different approach than the robot-car, the Mercedes, and other companies in other cities. Because in the Stuttgart Garage, the Sensors and the brain of the system do not have to sit in the vehicle, but in the car Park. The Sensors and stereo cameras are routes next to the carriageway and on the ceiling installed. You over communicate over Wifi with the car, and draw this to the free Parking lot to the other, "normal", moving vehicles and pedestrians.
so Far, the work vehicles, but only two specially-equipped Mercedes. Ordinary visitors to the Park house to einparkieren with their cars quite old-fashioned by hand. Bosch and Daimler is to develop as quickly as possible production models - however, you have to wait on the regulators, until they have written the legal Standards. In addition, the companies want to offer their technology to other car manufacturers. Here already held talks with the German Association of the automotive industry would.
