Nissan Motor Co Ltd announced the first “Intelligent Parking Chair”, a concept inspired by its intelligent park assist technology that allows drivers to easily park their vehicles using automatic steering.

The ” Nissan Intelligent Parking Chair” is a unique chair that automatically moves to a set position. The chair includes a roller to automatically move 360 degrees paired with a system that indicates the target position. In an attempt to show off technology it uses for assisted parking, Nissan equipped office chairs to respond to human commands like clapping. Four cameras placed on the room’s ceiling generate a bird’s-eye view to wireless transmit the chair’s position and its route to destination.

With this innovation in office technology, Japanese businessmen are now freed from the troublesome task of arranging chairs, using this new technology already adopted in the X-Trail Hybrid and other Nissan vehicles.

The “Intelligent Parking Chair” was inspired from Nissan’s latest “Intelligent Park Assist” technology. The base “Bird’s-eye view” and “Automatic Movement” concepts are also introduced in the Intelligent Parking Chair. Conversely, the surprise and comfort earned from this effortless process can be equally seen in the Intelligent Parking Chair.

Produced in collaboration with the award-winning creative team BIRDMAN, the Intelligent Parking Chair is a promotional project that highlights Nissan’s aim to “enrich people’s lives through technology”. Seeing the concept in action shows just how much time and effort can be saved when incorporating systems like these into our everyday lives.

As simple as it sounds, don’t expect these chairs to be hitting the market any time soon. What you see here is merely a stunt to promote the Japanese automaker’s intelligent parking assist technology, so you’ll probably still be pushing office chairs around for the many years to come.
