Self-parking Volvo

Self-parking Volvo

At the Geneva Auto Show, we watched the new Toyota Prius and its self-parking floor demonstration. Now, Autoblog reports on and shows video of a self-parking Volvo S60. It does the same type of parallel-parking maneuver as the Prius and uses a similarly large space. The S60 is shown parking on a normal street, but it merely backs into the space without making any forward corrections. Living in San Francisco, I'm used to doing my own parallel parking. What would be more useful is a device that scans each side of the street, looking for available parking spaces just big enough for my car.
