At this year's Mobile World Congress BMW will be demonstrating a novel way of finding and maneuvering a car into an available space.In 2015.

BMW debuted a remote-control parking feature on its i3 electric car whereby touching a smartphone or smartwatch button sent the car autonomously reversing into a space.

Two years later it's going one better and is ditching the handset altogether.

Instead, all the owner will need to do to send the car into a space or call it from the carpark and to them is a wave of the hand – in other words, true gesture control. —  AFP Relaxnews
