Equipped with Nissan’s ProPILOT Park autonomous parking technology, the slippers are fitted with two tiny wheels, a motor and sensors allowing them to automatically return to their designated parking spots at the push of a button.

The slippers form part of a marketing campaign to raise awareness of automated driving technologies, applying Nissan’s autonomous parking technology to everyday objects.

“The self-parking slippers are meant to raise awareness of automated driving technologies- and their potential, non-driving applications,” said a Nissan spokesperson.

When the guesthouse opens in March 2018, selected guests will be invited by Nissan to experience the technology in action.
