There have been a few articles in some of the car magazines over the past month or so about “self parking” cars, do they really work, are they really necessary, is it safe etc..?
I personally would not want my car to park itself, it just doesn’t seem right. Anyway, it was after reading one of these articles that I suddenly remembered about a “Tomorrows World” programme I saw many years ago (for those of you who don’t know what Tomorrow World was, it was a programme which showcased prototypes and advances in technology which were to come).
Just take a look at the video clip from the Tomorrow World programme, it’s strange the way they originally envisaged a car parking itself. Also note that they are predicting proximity sensors.
