Valeo unveils iPhone controlled 'self-parking' system

Washington, Jan. 09 : Valeo reportedly demonstrated its iPhone-controlled 'self-parking' system at the ongoing CES 2014 in Las Vegas.


The automotive equipment supplier had a Range Rover Evoque equipped with its futuristic system that was controlled by an iPhone app.

According to Cnet, swiping through the app, the car was able to move itself, drive to an open parking spot and park-itself by reversing and moving evenly to park between cars on either side.

As the car was equipped with 12 ultrasonic sensors, laser scanner and four cameras, Valeo said that the system could also parallel park or nose in independently.

The company had added a CPU, no larger than the car's standard engine control unit, to analyze the sensor data and determine the best route into the spot and a control unit for steering, braking, and accelerating.

Luxury carmaker BMW also demonstrated similar automated parallel parking at the push of a button in its i3 range of electronic cars.
