VW Group testing autonomous parking

Volkswagen, Audi and Porsche are conducting tests for autonomous parking at Hamburg Airport. The function is set to be available from 2020 but it will be launched in stages. Additional services such as parcel delivery and charging will be added to the new service.

On the test site in the Hamburg Airport car park, orientation is provided by pictorial markers that Volkswagen claims can easily be installed in any other car park.

The function should be available in select multi-storey car parks from the start of the next decade.
