Audi is launching its 2018 A8 next month which is likely to be level 3 autonomous. The company couldn’t stop itself from showing off the A8’s self-driving technology. Audi released a video that displays how easily the A8 can park itself.
If you take a look at the video, the A8 can go back inside a parking space at the push of a button. It may not sound like a game-changing technology and the A8 isn’t the far car to come with automatic parking technology, but it can come handy in specific use cases.
Self-parking technology will be just one of the several features Audi will unveil at a grand launch event next month in July. The company’s invitation claims that the event will showcase next-generation solutions for urban transportation. Audi will also reveal its vision of the future of cars and communication technologies baked into cars of the future.
Audi officially announced today that it is the first company ever to get a self-driving car license in the state of New York. The company revealed its A7 with level 3 autonomous technologies during one of its several self-driving car technology demos.
The autonomous car market is already heated up. Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, confirmed yesterday that the company is already working on a technology for self-driving cars. The confirmation came months after speculations pointed at the technology giant working towards building their own car.
