Inspired by the latest Intelligent Park Assist Technology Nissan Motor Presents The World’s First Automated ‘Intelligent Parking Chair’. It is a promotional project that materializes Nissan’s corporate vision of ‘enriching people’s lives through technology’. 

For creating the ‘Intelligent Parking Chair’, Nissan was inspired by the concept of its intelligent park assist technology that allows drivers to easily park their vehicles using automatic steering.

Automatically moving chair

The ‘Intelligent Parking Chair’ already goes viral on the internet. It 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.

 Nissan jokes: “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 some Nissan vehicles.”


The inventive chair 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 base “Bird’s-eye view” and “Automatic Movement” concepts are also introduced in the Intelligent Parking Assist. Conversely, the surprise and comfort earned from this effortless process can be equally seen in the Intelligent Parking Chair.

The system of the Intelligent Park Assist inside the vehicle uses fourcameras on the car body (the front, rear, and both wingmirrors). The system converts video footage from thecameras and composites a virtual bird’s-eye view imagethat allows automatic steering.

The Intelligent Parking Chair also uses four camerasplaced on each corner of the room’s ceiling. The cameras will locate the chair’s current position, while the systemcalculates the chair’s route to return to its original position.
