On my return flight from HP Discover in Frankfurt, I read this article on self-parking cars in USA Today. Auto-parking systems use sensors to identify the right-sized spot, and signal drivers when the system has found one. The system then takes over steering, and uses sensors to guide the vehicle into place. I have always found applications to be similar to cars—whether it is to selectively modernize them, or to systemically monitor them. The article made me wonder if applications can take a hint and follow the example set by self-parking cars.
