Have you ever struggled to get your car into a small space on a one-way street? Fret not, parking might soon be a thing of the past. At this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, BMW will be demonstrating a novel way of finding and manoeuvring a car into an available space. In 2015 BMW debuted a remote-control parking feature on its i3 electric car whereby touching a smartphone or smartwatch button sent the car autonomously reversing into a space.
Two years later, it's going one better and is ditching the handset altogether. Instead, all the owner will need to do to send the car into a space or call it from the carpark and to them is a wave of the hand—in other words, true gesture control. Bye bye parallel parking!
