Ford - Automated Valet Parking

Description

Ford Motor Company, Bedrock and Bosch are launching a demonstration project with connected Ford Escape test vehicles that can drive and park themselves inside Bedrock’s Assembly Garage in Detroit using Bosch smart infrastructure. This is the first U.S. infrastructure-based solution for automated valet parking where the vehicle will park itself inside a parking garage.The research will take place in the Corktown neighborhood, the site of Ford’s new mobility innovation district, anchored by Michigan Central Station. The district will draw mobility innovators and disruptors from around the world to develop, test, and launch new solutions to solve urban transportation challenges, improve mobility access for everyone and prepare for the increasingly connected and autonomous world ahead.

  • The new BMW iX - Automated Valet Parking @IAA MOBILITIY

    At the International Motor Show (IAA) Mobility 2021, which will take place from September 7 to 12 in Munich, the BMW Group will be showcasing in a variety of ways what premium urban mobility could look like in the future. One example of this is the Automated Valet Parking project, which was developed together with the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) and other partners. For the first time, interested parties will have the opportunity to experience automated and driverless parking and service functions up close in a unique demonstration.The focus of the impressive demonstration is the new technology flagship of the BMW Group, the BMW iX. As an innovator in the development fields of software, digital services and networking, the fully electric SUV is able to communicate with the infrastructure and to carry out automated, driverless parking processes. Particular attention is paid to the safety of the driving maneuvers and the data exchange required for this between the vehicle, smartphone app and parking garage infrastructure. In doing so, the BMW Group is underlining that safety always has the highest priority. In addition to the complete parking process, viewers experience other automated service functions such as washing or charging the BMW iX with the help of robots.

  • Automated Valet Parking - The driveless parking service

    Automated parking to drive down the airport stress: Bosch, Mercedes-Benz, and the parking garage operator Apcoa want to introduce driverless and fully automated parking at Stuttgart airport in the future. To this end, the automated valet parking (AVP) system co-developed by Bosch and Mercedes-Benz is to be made ready for commercial operation. The new Mercedes-Benz S-Class is already geared up to accommodate it as the world’s first production vehicle to feature the technology required for future infrastructure-based AVP. As an option, customers can buy the appropriate pre-installation for what the company calls the INTELLIGENT PARK PILOT, which makes the S-Class capable of receiving a smartphone command to drive itself to a reserved parking space. “With the new S-Class, it’s not just driving that’s a luxury, but parking as well,” says Dr. Michael Hafner, head of automated driving at Mercedes-Benz AG. The P6 parking garage at Stuttgart airport will serve as the pilot for the planned commercial automated parking service. Here, the companies will test how the vehicle technology onboard the S-Class interacts with the intelligent Bosch infrastructure and APCOA FLOW, the digital platform provided by the parking garage operator Apcoa. This platform makes the whole parking process ticketless and cashless. “Apcoa, Bosch, Mercedes-Benz, and Stuttgart airport want to work together to make parking fully automatic,” says Christoph Hartung, member of the executive management of Connected Mobility Solutions at Bosch. In the airport parking garage, preparations are currently underway to begin piloting the planned automated valet parking service. The aim of this trial with new S-Class vehicles at Stuttgart airport is to ensure that interactions between the vehicle, infrastructure technology, and parking garage operator run smoothly and are optimized for the customer.

  • Mercedes-Benz Automated Valet Parking

    Parking by yourself is so yesterday – this is the promise of a joint pilot project of Mercedes-Benz and Bosch in Stuttgart. In close cooperation with one another, the two companies have developed an innovative parking service: the so-called "Automated Valet Parking". And this is how the automated parking service works: Having arrived at a parking garage, you leave your vehicle in a "Drop-off Area". One click in a corresponding smartphone app and the car moves off without any further human intervention into the parking garage and maneuvers into a free space. And it's exactly the same the other way around. Shortly before you want to leave, you order the vehicle via the app. Detected by the intelligent system of the parking garage, the car starts and drives autonomously to a "Pick-up Area". Simply get in and drive off – even parking the car in narrow parking garages in particular loses its fear factor.

  • Ford City Insights Studio - Parking Insights Tool & Simulations

    A bustling city’s transportation system can often seem chaotic, especially with more than half of the world’s population moving to urban areas and new mobility services jockeying for space. But as Ford CEO Jim Hackett outlined at last year's Consumer Electronics Show, vehicles and other forms of mobility don't exist independently of each other. In fact, they have broad impact on our communities, cities and the world.Ford is working with cities to help transform people's lives in profound ways. This includes exploring how autonomous technology can be part of an urban transportation network and weaving together different transit operations to create a better system for all. But it also means developing tools that help cities easily visualise and understand their entire transportation system so they can make better decisions for their communities.
