Published 03/07/2013 | 09:11
EVER wished that you had a self parking car? Well you might be in luck.
Volvo are developing new technology that will see a car find a spare space and park there without the driver being in the vehicle.
The car will use censors to interact safely, with pedestrians, kerbs and other vehicles.
The driver will then use a mobile phone app to call the car back.
But don't get too excited there are reports the service will only work with parking in spaces designed to be compatible with Volvo's specific infrastructure technology.
Other new features Volvo are working on, include detection and auto brake for when pedestrians and large animals walk out onto the road.
Apparently most of these technologies will be available in the new Volvo XC90, which won't be revealed until the end of 2014.
