Land Rover is showcasing some of the next-generation autonomous driving technology that it is planning to bring to future models.

The new BMW 7 Series, launched on June 10, is the first car that can be parked via remote control, but Land Rover's idea is more in keeping with the company's 'go anywhere' heritage.

As long as the owner is within 3 meters of his or her Range Rover Sport, the car can be remotely maneuvered around the tightest of carparks or over the most challenging of off-road terrains at low speeds.

The supporting smartphone app gives the owner full remote control of the steering, accelerator and brakes and, because he or she is standing outside, complete, all-round visibility of obstacles -- be they ditches, rocks or a poorly-parked car.
