As a surface for wheels, pavement does its job well enough. Asphalt concrete is flat, smooth and solid (usually).

We went in search of better pavement and found these potential solutions.
If worrying about your vehicle and personal possessions has always made you hesitant about using valet parking, Honda will alleviate your fears with a new system that replaces clumsy valet drivers with overhead tracking cameras and software smart enough to juggle an entire lot full of cars.
Realising that cars that automatically parallel park themselves are old news, Volvo has taken the concept much further with a new concept vehicle that can actually find an empty spot and park itself in a lot.
