Volkswagen Group soon to have autonomous parking ready for series vehicles

  • Volkswagen, Audi and Porsche testing autonomous parking at Hamburg Airport
  • Function set to be available in first Group vehicles as of 2020
  • Safety the top priority: autonomous parking to be introduced in stages
  • Integrated approach: additional services such as charging, parcel/laundry delivery and billing by app
  • Autonomous parking is an important component of autonomous driving

Using what is to date unique technology, the Volkswagen Group is currently testing autonomous parking at Hamburg Airport: based on a car park map the Volkswagen, Audi and Porsche vehicles navigate their way to a parking space on their own. Orientation is provided for them by simple pictorial markers installed in the multi-storey car park. Its advantage: this can be used in essentially any car park. The function is set to be available for the first customers in selected multi-storey car parks from the start of the next decade.
