Volkswagen is showing off its new Park Assist Vision technology at the Hanover Fair in Germany. Unlike VW’s previous attempts, this version of Park Assist is fully automatic. As such, the driver-turned-spectator can stand outside the car while the Passat maneuvers its way into cramped spots with the help of external cameras and proximity sensors. The driver selects his space on the monitor of the navigation system and then sets the vehicle into “P” mode. It’s just a trial for now so you’ll still have to get by with the ol’ bump-smile-n-flirt approach that’s gotten you and your Aquanet hair into the city up until now. Video demonstration after the break.

  1. I can’t tell what I’m more excited by, the parking or the mention of one of my favorite phrases: “bridge and tunnel”. I guess I’m bridge and tunnel now. Bridge and tunnel pride! Big hair rules!
