Self-Parking chair drives innovation for cars?

Nissan selfparkingchairannounced the first “Intelligent Parking Chair”, a concept inspired by its intelligent park assist technology that allows drivers to park their vehicles using automatic steering. We’re wondering if the chair could get a self-driving license in California, because there is no driver or brakes according to current laws.

The “Intelligent Parking Chair” is a unique chair that automatically moves to a set position. The chair includes a roller to automatically move 360 degrees paired with a system that indicates the target position. Four cameras placed on the room’s ceiling generate a bird’s-eye view to wirelessly transmit the chair’s position and its route to destination.

The news release claims with this innovation in office technology, Japanese businessmen are now freed from the troublesome task of arranging chairs, using this new technology already adopted in the X-Trail Hybrid and other Nissan vehicles.

The Intelligent Parking Chair is a promotional project that materializes Nissan’s corporate vision of “enriching people’s lives through technology”. It was produced in collaboration with the award-winning creative team BIRDMAN.

This concept aims at increasing knowledge around the latest technology adopted by Nissan vehicles, while showing how this is slowly changing our daily lives.

The “Intelligent Parking Chair” was inspired from Nissan’s latest “Intelligent Park Assist” technology. The base “Bird’s-eye view” and “Automatic Movement” concepts are also introduced in the Intelligent Parking Chair.

Conversely, the surprise and comfort earned from this effortless process can be equally seen in the Intelligent Parking Chair.

  1. Wheelchairs for everybody! Limit them to 15 miles an hour, give them dedicated lanes that they share with bicycles, skateboarders etc. Have a Siri-type interface and park them all over the city to be rented out as needed. The barriers to implementing this would be much lower than with cars, and for getting around town they would be close to perfect.
