Autonomous parking to be available in Volkswagen Group models by 2020

23 April 2018

The Volkswagen Group is currently testing autonomous parking at Hamburg Airport in Germany. Using a map of the multi-storey car park, an array of sensors and a number of markers throughout the car park, cars can find a space autonomously, decide whether charging is necessary, and show up at the exit when the driver is ready to leave.

There are good reasons for gradually introducing autonomous driving functions, explained Johann Jungwirth, chief digital officer of the Volkswagen Group, “What we offer our customers works absolutely reliably and safely. This is what today’s technology for vehicles from the Volkswagen Group stands for, and we will continue to keep this promise – also in the era of autonomous driving''.
