Japanese carmaker Nissan recently unveiled its ?Intelligent Parking Chair?, an off-shoot of its self-parking technology derived from its cars experimenting with automatic steering.
Using modified Okamura chairs, these office seats automatically orient themselves and return to their assigned desks neatly, triggered only by a clap of the hands.
The chairs are shown turning 360 degrees, and are tracked with the help of cameras placed in the room?s ceiling, generating a birds? eye view on a computer that wirelessly transmits the chair?s position and its route to its destination.
While it is a novel demonstration of its self-parking technology, Nissan has already implemented this system in its X-Trail hybrid model and other Nissan vehicles ? a step closer to delivering a fully autonomous driving experience.
