I have just come across some videos that were circulating the web back in 2006. One of them, it was a demo of a BMW using the Auto Park feature and doing a perfect parallel parking in an urban environment. Even though this is not news, I figured some of you might have not seen them back then and it would be interesting to take a look at them.

BMW’s Auto Parking system scans the space between cars before automatically doing the parking for you.

The second videos is about BMW’s Remote Park Assist, a new technology developed by BMW for cars to park themselves into garages automatically, and all without the assistance of a driver. All the process is handled through a remote-controlled system.

The system uses a camera and multiple sensors located on the car as well as a reflecting lens mounted on your garage wall or near whatever parking space you normally use.
