Abstrakt

We propose a new way to find a car on a large parking area: By pressing a button on the key fob that is usually used to remotely lock or unlock the car, cars in the vicinity of the user form a running-light by switching on and off their lights and thus leading the user's attention from their current position to the position of their car. This somewhat resembles the emergency floor path marking in airplanes guiding passengers to the nearest exits.
