Mercedes and Bosch have showcased a clever solution to one of the most tiresome aspects of driving – trying to find a space in a busy parking lot or garage. The automaker and tech giant have paired up to show how vehicles can park and drive themselves at a demonstration of automated valet parking at the Intercontinental Los Angeles Downtown Hotel in California. And the display points to what drivers might realistically expect in the not too distant future from vehicles equipped with the necessary equipment in car parks with the correct infrastructure. The demo featured Mercedes’ electric EQS fitted with the Level 4-rated Intelligent Park Assist feature, which communicated with Bosch lidar sensors fitted within the parking garage to maneuver and guide the car to a free space, avoiding pedestrians and potential obstacles en route.
