Operation principle of the remote park assist
*Automated parking functions might not yet be available, or not universally, or will not be universally available. The use of automatic driving functions might not be permitted in your jurisdiction or might be permitted according to further or deviating legislative restrictions. Please always comply with the applicable national road traffic regulations and take safety precautions as advised.
An ultrasonic sensor integrated into the side of the front bumper scans the side of the road to detect a suitable parallel or perpendicular space. Once a parking space is detected, the system alerts the driver. He or she can get out of the car, in front of the selected space, and start the parking maneuver remotely, by pressing a button on their car key or smartphone*. The vehicle then parks and pulls itself out of the space on its own, without the need for anyone at the wheel. The driver remains responsible at all times for monitoring the vehicle’s surroundings. The parking maneuver only continues as long as the driver presses the button on the remote key. The park assist controls the brakes, steering, engine, and transmission. Once the car reaches its final parking position, the engine is switched off and the parking brake engaged.
