DSC_0912 (1)Nissan debuted its ProPilot Park Ryokan, featuring ProPilot Assist technology.

ProPilot Assist is the automaker’s semi-autonomous driver-assistance technology that helps control acceleration, braking, and steering during single-lane highway driving.

At the ryokan, however, the technology is being used to ensure that, at the push of a button, items including slippers, cushions, and tables are returned to where they belong. This is done in a manner similar to how Nissan’s ProPilot Park system uses a car’s steering, brakes, and throttle to maneuver a vehicle into a parking space without the need for human input.

The ryokan is located in Hakone, Japan, a town in Ashigarashimo District in Kanagawa Prefecture. It is known for its onsen hot springs resorts, museums, volcanically active geysers, and, in spring, cherry blossoms.
