i grew up being told that in the future we would be riding around in flying cars. i've grown up and there are no flying cars, only cars that can drive and park themselves. they do not live up to my expectation of the future at all.
yeah, too many open ends, like mistaking any gap for an open spot, reserved parking, what if a little kids standing in the spot the car cams dont see? does it always do this at 2 mph? people might get pissed... what if it runs out of gas? what if there is no parking does it just drive in circles? what happens if it wrecks whos liable?

It would be incredibly easy for the car to pick a safe, viable spot. All you need are color sensors and if you have two white lines with no yellow or white or orange inside of it, then it will work. And just like facial recognition you can easily have handicap sign recognition on the side of the car. From there any motion sensors will tell if there is a child standing in the spot, and the reaction time of the car can be made to be much better than that of a human. Obviously it wouldnt run out of gas. For a car that smart that is easy to make sure there is enough gas in the car to drive around a parking lot. As for who's liable, obviously the person who owns the car. All this stuff is going to cost a lot, but it can definitely be made to work without any external hardware for a reasonable cost.
