YOKOHAMA, Japan, Sept. 29 (UPI) -- Nissan has used its autonomous technology to create a self-driving chair, which promises to make waiting in line more comfortable.

The self-driving ProPILOT chairs are equipped with cameras, which can link chairs into a line by detecting the chair in front and keeping a fixed distance between each chair.

Nissan is accepting applications from several restaurants throughout Japan looking to offer the self-moving line experience, according to Tech Crunch.

Applications will be accepted through Dec. 27 and those selected will have their restaurant outfitted with ProPILOT chairs in 2017.

The chairs use a similar technology to Nissan's "intelligent parking chairs" which are activated by clapping and can place themselves perfectly underneath desks and conference tables without human guidance.
