Self-parking cars still need some tweaks

AMS has been keeping an eye on the phenomenon of self-driving cars over the last year or two, and the technology still looks as though it will become widespread in the very near future. Its earlier incarnation – self-parking cars – looked to be almost complete over the same period… until we saw this!

We’re not sure what went wrong with this test. Worryingly, Volvo says that this car wasn’t attempting to self-park. “It seems they are trying to demonstrate pedestrian detection and auto-braking,” said Volvo spokesman Johan Larsson. Well we’re not sure that this system is quite ready yet either!
