Bosch demonstrates driverless car parking

If you hate to parallel park, there is new technology coming soon for you. Bosch is showing off driverless parking technology at the International CES show in Las Vegas aimed at making it easier for drivers to park even in tight spots.

Bosch says that in 2015 automatic park assist will be an available smart phone app and will work on any vehicle. All you need to do is drive by the spot so the car can scan the space, get out, and let the car do all the work.

Not that the technology is new. Our last tested Lexus LS was so equipped. (Check out our archived video demonstration.)

No word yet on timing or cost for the hardware and installation of the Bosch system. Check out our peek at the technology in the video above.
