Automated Parking Technologies and Solutions
Parking is an essential element in the current paradigm of personal mobility, driven by the need to leave the vehicle within easy walking distance of either the next leg of the journey or the destination. As has been the case with most core driving tasks, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) have been developed in order to ease the burden placed on the driver by parking, following the typical course of moving beyond passively informing the driver to more actively intervening on the driver's behalf.
This report identifies, defines and analyzes three distinct phases of autonomous parking technology:
The market opportunity for each phase is examined in detail, as is the transition from each phase to the next. Finally, the role of parking, and the relevance of autonomous parking technologies, are considered in the context of fully driverless vehicles.
