Yes, while most people will just park the car, it is good that they're at least working on the autonomous problem...which is very hard... just look at Tesla. They've been working on it for years, leveraging their entire global fleet for training data and it still doesn't work.

There isn't any reason BMW or any other OEM shouldn't work on this. Further, I would hazard a guess that these auto-park areas are heavily controlled, to ensure some random customer/kid isn't in an area where something could happen. Even so, it would be great if the car could sense pedestrians and handle accordingly.... easier to do at slow speed and in a controlled environment than in some public car park.

"it is good that they're at least working on the autonomous problem.."

The reality is autonomous driving is a solution to something which isn't a problem.
