Fun demonstration of Nissan’s autonomous driving technology in Japanese hotel

Nissan has been demonstrating its autonomous driving technology in an unusual way – by offering self-parking slippers, tables and floor cushions at a traditional Japanese ryokan (inn).

The amenities are rigged with a special version of Nissan's ProPILOT Park autonomous parking technology. When not in use, they automatically return to their designated spots at the push of a button.

First introduced in the new Nissan Leaf in Japan in October 2017, ProPILOT Park detects surrounding objects and lets drivers automatically park the vehicle in a selected parking space by pressing a button.
