TOKYO, Feb. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Nissan Motor Co Ltd (Headquarters: Yokohama, Japan, CEO: Carlos Ghosn) announced the first "Intelligent Parking Chair", a concept inspired by its intelligent park assist technology that allows drivers to easily park their vehicles using automatic steering.

The "Intelligent Parking Chair" is a unique chair that automatically moves to a set position. The chair includes a roller to automatically move 360 degrees paired with a system that indicates the target position. Four cameras placed on the room's ceiling generate a bird's-eye view to wirelessly transmit the chair's position and its route to destination.

With this innovation in office technology, Japanese businessmen are now freed from the troublesome task of arranging chairs, using this new technology already adopted in the X-Trail Hybrid and other Nissan vehicles.


The Intelligent Parking Chair is a promotional project that materializes Nissan's corporate vision of "enriching people's lives through technology". It was produced in collaboration with the award-winning creative team BIRDMAN.

This concept aims at increasing knowledge around the latest technology adopted by Nissan vehicles, while showing how this is slowly changing our daily lives.


The "Intelligent Parking Chair" was inspired from Nissan's latest "Intelligent Park Assist" technology. The base "Bird's-eye view" and "Automatic Movement" concepts are also introduced in the Intelligent Parking Chair.

Conversely, the surprise and comfort earned from this effortless process can be equally seen in the Intelligent Parking Chair.
