BMW, the German luxury carmaker, is reportedly working on a technology that will allow drivers to park their cars using a smartwatch.

According to a report by The Verge, BMW will be showing off its recent advances in autonomous vehicle research, including the smartwatch-operable 'Remote Valet Parking Assistant' at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2015.

The i3 research vehicle with four "advanced laser scanners" can spot and avoid any sudden obstructions within an environment. On detecting an obstruction, its on-board assistance system automatically triggers brakes.
