Car remote control allows automated parking in China

Remote control can be exercised from as far as 10 ft (3 m) away.

With the electronic equivalent of a whistle, owners of the BYD Su Rui (pronounced "suri") can beckon their car from as far as 30 ft (10 m) away. At 1.2 mph (2.0 km/h), it will be there in a flash. Remote control of the Su Rui five-seat family sedan allows for starting, moving forward and backward, and turning left and right. It also allows for remote activation of the HVAC system. The remote driving feature is useful in China, where the spaces for parking are often extremely tight and the ability to park and "unpark" from outside the car has value. BYD claims the Su Rui is the only car in its class offering the technology in China. The car is now coming to market and has a base price of $10,365.
