Self-Parking Cars Coming To U.S.

New Toyota hybrid cars are now available in Britain with a $700 "parking assist" option.

With the self-parking assistant, the driver is only responsible for controlling the speed of the car, via the brake pedal.

The car's computer senses when it's time to turn the car's wheel and announces when the ride is over.
First step to the self driving car. $700 bucks, that doesn't seem so bad. But really, a Prius has good vis and good turn radius. I want it for a car that is a boat with no visibility out the rear window and horrible turn radius.
