With Mercedes-Benz Active Parking Assist, your vehicle searches for a suitable parking space itself and parks automatically at the press of a button, with the driver retaining control of the accelerator and brake at all times.

With Mercedes-Benz Active Parking Assist, your vehicle searches for a suitable parking space itself and parks automatically at the press of a button, with the driver retaining control of the accelerator and brake at all times.

 

 

At speeds of less than 36 km/h, Active Parking Assist starts the automatic search for parking spaces – both parallel and perpendicular. The driver stays in control of the accelerator and brake at all times. If the vehicle approaches an obstacle while you are parking automatically, the vehicle can stop automatically, thus helping to avoid troublesome parking damage. Also, Active Parking Assist can manoeuvre the vehicle out of the parallel or perpendicular parking space again independently, with automatic steering and braking, if it was parked automatically before.

 

 

 

For the purposes of automatic parking, the ultrasonic sensors of the PARKTRONIC system measure the distance to the vehicle in front and behind. The driver retains control of the vehicle throughout the parking process and is required only to regulate the speed with the accelerator or brake pedal. After a few brief manoeuvres, the vehicle is duly parked facing in the driving direction.

 

 

Active Parking Assist incorporates a total of ten ultrasonic sensors – six in the front bumper and four in the rear bumper – together with an electronic control unit which processes the sensor signals and calculates the ideal path into the parking space. This information is relayed to the electro-mechanical power steering system, whose electric motor performs the necessary steering movements automatically. The system operates with extreme precision: a parking space just 1.2 metres longer than the vehicle is sufficient for the automatic parking process.
