Easier Parking

  Getting in or out of a tight parking spot could sometimes be very trying, especially for older people and inexperienced drivers.
My idea would be to have a set of 4 telescopic arms fitted with electrically driven wheels. This way one only has to pull up, paralell to the parking place activate the parking device which is controlled via a joystick inside the car and guide the car into the parking spot sideways. This same device may also be used as a car jack for a tire change just switch to park mode to lift the car off the ground and change your tire. I'm sure the battery drain problem could be solved by having a larger battery and by having the system function only when the gear is in neutral.
