Volvo is working on a car that acts as its own valet and parks itself

Between self-charging electric cars and kangaroo sensors, Volvo is making quite a few strides in developing cars of the future. 


But for city-dwellers who spend the better part of an hour searching for parking spaces, the carmaker is working on technology that will come as a godsend. Volvo is developing a system that will turn your car into its own valet. The system will drop you off in front of a destination, then autonomously drive itself until it finds a spot and alert you of its location. From there, it's a simple tap of your smartphone to have it come pick you up. Pretty slick!
