Honda shows special Fit EVs with automatic driverless valet parking system [video]

The race is on! Every major automaker is looking into self driving cars. At first it is in the form of semi-autonomous technologies that can be seen mainly in self parking systems.

Ford, Nissan and Toyota have already shown different automated driving systems, and now Honda is joining the game with an automatic valet parking system that was unveiled earlier this month at the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) World Congress in Tokyo.

Honda’s system is quite different from Ford’s, as it also uses input from the parking lot via cameras in addition to car’s own camera system.

The plus side of this system is that no sensors are needed, just the backup camera, but the downside is that it can be operated on parking lots which are properly equipped to work with Honda’s system, which is not very practical.
