In its presentation at the Frankfurt auto show, Siemens VDO displayed its "pro.pilot" network of driver assistance systems. The system integrates a variety of alert and assist functions, including a lane-changing assistant, a lane-tracking assistant, a lidar-based adaptive cruise control system, infrared night vision systems, and - wait for it - the Park Mate system.
The Park Mate searches for an empty parking spot (I'm not making this up!), then parks the car, steering while instructing the driver when to use the accelerator and brakes.

No word on when the pro.pilot system will see production.
