Meet Your Future J-Turning Robot Car Overlords

Stanford University's Computer Science Department's autonomous VW Passat Wagon has learned a fun new trick: using vehicle and real-world models to accurately J-turn its way into a parallel parking space. At least our future masters have skills.

Since Ford's parking assist feature has made automagic parking ridiculously simple as a factory option, Stanford had to increase the difficulty by stunting while parallel parking. It's a machine built to taunt all those who can't properly navigate the complexities of parking street side. [PopSci]
