BMW technology lets car park itself

One of the reasons that I don’t drive a fancy car like a BMW is that I would be terrified of scratching or denting it when I was trying to park. I’ll have to come up with a better excuse now, because BMW has unveiled technology that lets a car park itself. You get out of the car, press a button on the keyfob and the car retracts its side mirrors and makes its way into a space that can be just a little wider than the car itself. The car uses the same type of distance-sensing technology that Toyota and Mercedes have experimented with.

Before you get too excited, though, this technology will really only be practical in your own garage. It requires a reflective lens fixed to the wall in front of the car to operate properly. It could take about three years for the technology to show up in a production vehicle.
