A new car is being developed by Volvo that would park itself without the driver sitting inside it.

The car would drop its driver off at the door, drive into the parking lot, find a space and park itself, Discovery News reported.

The driver would initiate the automatic valet service via a smartphone.

The vehicle would have sensors and cameras aboard to navigate the vehicle and ensure that it doesn't hit people or other cars.

After finding a parking space, it would park and send a message to the smartphone, helping the driver locate the car later.

According to the car company, the technology, which is still in concept cars, would work with existing parking lots, but it would still need what the company calls "Vehicle 2 Infrastructure"- basically systems of radio transmitters in the parking lot that tell the car where the open spaces are.
