► Audi's automatic driving for parking
Audi's automatic parking systems operate by means of either ultrasound or
cameras, which display images via the onboard monitor. One particularly
convenient solution is park assist. When backing into a parking space, it
performs all the necessary steering movements; it can handle both parallel
parking and parking perpendicular to the street. The system finds a parking
space with ultrasound sensors that scan the roadside in two dimensions
while driving at moderate speed. The system notifies the driver via a
message in the display once the sensors have found a space which is large
If the driver wishes to park in the space, he or she shifts into reverse
and the park assist system takes over the steering. The driver must
accelerate, shift gears, and brake. When parallel parking, the detected
space is large enough if it is about 80 centimeters (2.62 ft) longer than
the vehicle itself. Park assist can perform multi-point parking maneuvers
and also offers support in leaving parallel parking spaces.
Another technology from Audi is the parking system plus with surround view
cameras. Four small cameras -- in the single-frame grille, at the rear and
in the side mirror housings -- record the vehicle's immediate surroundings.
The driver can call up a variety of views on the large onboard monitor,
including a top-down virtual view. On corners or junctions with an
obstructed view, the system can analyze cross-traffic otherwise invisible
to the driver in front of or behind the vehicle.
