On average Germans spend 41 hours a year looking for a parking space, the British spend 44 hours and residents of New York even spend 107 hours a year.
A pilot project from the Volkswagen Group shows how this is possible to simply leave your car at the entrance to the car park and the car looks for a parking space and parks autonomously. In a multi-storey car park near the terminal of Hamburg Airport, experts are currently testing autonomous parking with Volkswagen, Audi and Porsche vehicles. The project is part of the mobility partnership with the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg that aims to develop Hamburg as a model city for urban mobility.
The target is for the first customers to be able to test the new autonomous parking service at the beginning of the next decade. And then there will be an end to the search for parking spaces and passengers can head straight to the terminal.
