Intelligent parking chair
Inspired by the technology and learning behind its self-parking cars, Nissan designed what it calls the "Intelligent Parking Chair." Watching the mobile chairs skitter under tables is charming, like some sort of Pixar film about polite office furniture. "By day, these chairs are inanimate objects. By night, they park!"
The Intelligent Parking Chair is a promotional project that materializes Nissan's corporate vision of "enriching people's lives through technology". It was produced in collaboration with the award-winning creative team BIRDMAN.

what is Intelligent parking chair ?
Nissan have come up with something more practical for the time being: self-parking office chairs. With a single clap, these futuristic furniture will automatically tuck themselves back into their rightful positions, thus keeping your office or meeting room neat and tidy. And of course, it's also fun to watch, as you can see in this video above.
The self-parking chairs that react to a hand clap, returning to their fixed positions, for example, after workers leave a meeting. The technology can liberate people from the “annoying task” of returning chairs to their original positions.
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 the X-Trail Hybrid and other Nissan vehicles.
How Intelligent parking chair works?
The "Intelligent Parking Chair" 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.
As with self-parking cars, cameras are used to analyze the locations of the chairs, and then computers remotely control the rollers inside the bottom of each chair.
Named the “Intelligent Parking Chair,” these high-tech pieces of office furniture may look a little bulky, but that's mostly because being sleek and letting you be a slob don't exactly go hand in hand. Nissan says these modified Okamura chairs are actually tracked by four motion cameras stationed at various strategic angles within a room. These Wi-Fi-controlled cameras are then able to transmit information to the chairs — or as the car company puts it, “generate a bird's-eye view to wirelessly transmit the chair's position and its route to destination.”
Then, when you clap, the chair takes this information and acts upon it, sliding back into its original position as though you and your colleagues were never there.
“By day, these chairs are inanimate objects,” Nissan boasts. “By night, they park!”

Unfortunately, the technology won't be setting anyone in the office free just yet. Nissan has no plans for now to make the self-parking chairs commercially available.
