Audi continues to raise expectations for the future A8. Now with a video that highlights the ability of the model to park alone, with the driver already out of the car. You only have to press a button.
Already announced as the first automobile of the brand of four rings to be counted, of the series, with autonomous level 3 driving technology, that is, capable of driving alone, accelerating and locking without human intervention, the future Audi A8 will still wield one more argument: the ability to park alone, with the driver already out of the car.
The demonstration of this added value has just been made by the Ingolstadt manufacturer himself, through a video, in which a father, after having taken his son to the movies, most likely to watch the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” movie, which the A8 participates in, comes home, takes the child in his arms and, with the simple press of a button, makes the car go alone to the interior of an ultramodern garage. In short, a treat …
It is recalled that Audi has planned to officially unveil the new generation A8 during the first “Audi Summit”, which will take place in Barcelona on July 11th. However, many of the details regarding the future flagship of the four-ring brand have already been revealed, as is the case, for example, of hybrid technology of 48V that, when coupled to a V6, will appear installed in all versions. Or, of the platform in aluminum that supposedly will guarantee a greater torsional stiffness.
The model must also have a technology that, as soon as the driver lifts his foot off the accelerator, automatically shuts off the combustion engine as a way to save fuel (at speeds stabilized between 55 and 160 km/h).
Equally state of the art is the advanced Stop & Start system, which, assisted by a camera mounted in front of the vehicle, can detect when the vehicle ahead starts moving, which forces the A8 engine to start moving even if the driver is distracted. A solution that, according to the manufacturer, makes it possible start moving faster, helping traffic flow.
Finally, Audi’s future flagship will also have autonomous driving technology, which will allow the German sedan to drive itself at speeds of up to 56 km/h, a so-called Traffic Jam Pilot solution.
