Automatic parking assistance does exactly what it sounds like it should – assists you in parking your car automatically.
Simply approach a car parking space then press a button to have the car manoeuvre into the space by itself.
Most systems work with parallel parking, angle parking, and side-by-side parking.
The car uses a range of sensors to ensure it doesn’t collide with other cars or objects.
- Your car will park itself, just sit back and relax
- Automatic parking only really works in normal ‘car-sized’ spaces, as it generally relies on positioning itself based on surrounding objects.
So attempting to use it in an empty car park or in a situation where other motorists have parked poorly may not give the best results.
