Driver assistance systems

With the four side ultrasound sensors, arrows, and the ultrasound sensors in the bumpers, the parking spaces are measured and the distances to obstacles determined.

Functional requirements

Ultrasound sensors

Ensure full functionality:

  • Do not cover sensors, for instance with stickers.
  • Keep the sensors clean and unobstructed.

For measuring parking spaces

  • Maximum speed while driving forward approx. 22 mph/35 km/h.
  • Maximum distance to row of parked vehicles: 5 ft/1.5 m.

Suitable parking space

General information:

  • Gap behind an object that has a min. length of 1.7 ft/0.5 m.
  • Gap between two objects with a minimum length of approx. 1.7 ft/0.5 m.

Parallel parking to the road:

  • Min. length of gap between two objects: your vehicle's length plus approx. 2.6 ft/0.8 m.
  • Minimum depth: approx. 5 ft/1.5 m.

Diagonal parking:

  • Minimum width of the gap: own vehicle's width plus approx. 2.3 ft/0.7 m.
  • Minimum depth: your vehicle's length.

    The depth of diagonal parking spaces must be estimated by the driver. Due to technical limitations, the system is only able to approximate the depth of diagonal parking spaces.

For parking

  • Doors and trunk lid are closed.

Steptronic transmission:

  • Driver's safety belt is fastened.
