OVERVIEW

Parking Aid System

The parking aid system provides an audible warning to the driver when any obstacles are in the path of the vehicle during forward or reverse parking manoeuver.

The system comprises off:

  • Parking Aid Control Module (PACM).
  • Parking aid switch.
  • Four ultrasonic sensors in the front bumper.
  • Four ultrasonic sensors in the rear bumper.

During low speeds, the Parking Aid Control Module (PACM) uses the ultrasonic sensors to monitor the area around the front and rear bumpers. If an object is detected within a monitored area, the PACM then outputs a warning signal using the audio system speakers. The sensors can detect solid objects such as posts, walls and other vehicles. Objects very close to the ground may not be detected, but because of their low height may not cause damage to the vehicle.

360º Parking Aid System

360º Parking aid system is an additional feature to the parking aid system.

The system uses the front and rear park assist sensors as well as the parking aid sensors.

When the vehicle is moving the park assist sensors are scanning the vehicle surroundings. When a given obstacle is detected and then moves out the sensor's range, it will then be tracked. Information will then be displayed via the Touch Screen (TS) or Audio Head Unit (AHU) informing the driver of close, mid and far range objects and the relevant area in which these objects have been detected.

The Parking Aid Control Module (PACM) still outputs a warning signal using the audio system speakers.

PARK ASSIST SYSTEM

The park assist system allows the vehicle to manoeuver into and out of a parking space.

There are three available features to park assist:

  1. Parallel parking.
  2. Perpendicular parking.
  3. Parking exit.

The system comprises off:

  • Parking Aid Control Module (PACM).
  • Park assist switch.
  • Two ultrasonic sensors on the wheel arch outer front finishers.
  • Two ultrasonic sensors on the wheel arch outer rear finishers.

When one of the features of park assist is selected, instructions are displayed in the message center. These instructions are communicated to the driver using the following methods:

  • Visual - graphical and text message instructions.
  • Audible - variable sound tones

If a system fault is detected, a continuous tone will sound and a fault message is displayed in the message center.

REAR VIEW CAMERA AND PROXIMITY CAMERA SYSTEMS

Depending on vehicle specification, either a Rear View Camera (RVC) or Proximity Camera system will be fitted. These systems provide additional information to the driver when reversing or manoeuvering.

The Rear View Camera (RVC) system will only use one camera in the tailgate and is only operational when Reverse (R) gear selected. This will display a wide-angle image of the rear of the vehicle.

The Proximity Camera system will use four cameras, one in the front bumper, one in the tailgate and a camera in each of the door mirrors. They will become operational when Reverse (R) or Drive (D) gear is selected. This will display a wide-angle image of the front, rear and sides of the vehicle.
