WHAT IS PARKING ASSISTANCE AND HOW DO YOU INSTALL PARKING SENSORS?

Want a relaxing drive and stress free parking? Parking sensors are now a common accessory on many new cars and a highly desirable aftermarket add-on. So, how do they work? What are the aftermarket options? And, how do you install them? Read on to learn more…

How does park assist work? 

We all know the feeling, trawling up and down a busy street looking for that elusive parking space, and then you spot one – it’s tight, but maybe you can squeeze in. A crowd gathers. Are your parking skills up to the task? 

If your car is fitted with parking sensors, it’s a total breeze. Your parking sensors – ultrasonic sensors installed in your bumpers, or cameras mounted around the car – measure the distance between your car and other objects, like the car you’re swiftly reversing towards in the tight little parking spot. As the crowd wonders if they’re about to see an accident, a beeping sound in the cabin (and perhaps a video screen) is alerting you to the fact you’re getting closer and closer. You stop with plenty of room to spare and the crowd breathes a sigh of relief.
