With the remote controlled park assist system, vehicles park themselves. All drivers need to do is press and hold a button on their ignition key or smartphone.
This tells the vehicle to automatically move itself into the parking space it has previously detected and measured using ultrasonic sensors. As soon as the driver releases the button on their ignition key or smartphone, the system immediately stops parking.
Drivers retain responsibility for the vehicle while it remains in their control, even though they are not in the vehicle.
Remote Park Assist typically disables some safety locks within the vehicle, for example if seat-belt warnings are enabled, as it’s assumed the vehicle will be empty.
