Furthermore, Garage park assist can do the job in narrow parking spaces. The overall experience is very smooth, effortless, and comfortable. The Garage park assist has a semi-automatic function. The system takes over the controls and parks the car on its own. It helps to get your vehicle into and out of the garage with an access route up to 10 meters. The driver can focus on controlling the parking operation on a mobile phone.

Components

The system involves three different components. The ultrasonic sensor, near range camera, and electronic stability program (ESP). The ultrasonic sensor detects the distance from obstacles. It also monitors the space between the car and obstacles. This sensor plays a crucial role in maneuvering.

In addition, the close-range camera offers a better viewing angle of the surroundings to the driver. Finally, the electronic stability control provides better brake control. It avoids skidding and keeps the car in control. All these components work together to achieve semi-automated parking.

How does Garage park assist work?

The system works effortlessly at the touch of a button on your smartphone. The driver arrives at the garage and gets outside from the car. The driver then activates the parking process by using a smartphone. Furthermore, the garage function then takes over the control. It handles acceleration, steering, gear selection, and all maneuvering.

In addition, along with the parking process, the system can also handle an access route of 10 meters. During the entire maneuvering process, the driver is solely responsible for all the monitoring of the vehicle. Therefore, the whole parking process only works as long as the driver keeps pressing the control button.
