Some people suck so much at parallel parking that manufacturer’s developed automated systems for parking for you. Recognizing the lack of manliness in these “features,” Stanford researchers have upgraded their autonomous car Junior to be capable of powersliding into parking spaces. Stanford is known for their successes as the first winner of the DARPA grand challenge in 2005 with Stanley and coming in second in DARPA’s urban challenge in 2007 with Junior. Until that feature is available for your next car, it’s time to man up and learn to do the maneuver yourself.
