Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive
Remote Parking Pilot
You can control your Mercedes-Benz remotely using the Remote Parking Pilot. Get out of the vehicle before parking it and then use your smartphone to conveniently manoeuvre the vehicle into even the tightest garages and perpendicular parking spaces. This is a comfort feature and also makes it safer for you and your family to get into and out of the vehicle.
The technical requirement for the Parking Pilot is the existence of the PARKTRONIC ultrasonic sensors, the optional equipment with 360° camera, the KEYLESS-GO system and an automatic transmission. In addition to partially autonomous parking, in exploration mode the vehicle is also able to drive small distances without any occupant.

Especially in built-up areas, it is often difficult to find a parking space that is both easily accessible and also safe. The Remote Parking Pilot ensures the stress-free parking of your vehicle.
If a parking space is too tight, so that the doors cannot be opened or there is a danger of damaging the paintwork, the driver can get out before parking and let the Parking Pilot do the rest. In the same way, you can avoid having to get out of the vehicle in dangerous situations on busy roads. The vehicle occupants can get out of the vehicle where it is safe to do so and, from the safety of the pavement, the driver can use his/her smartphone to conveniently park the vehicle in a perpendicular parking space.
The required app is currently available for iOS. It is also necessary to activate the service in the Mercedes me portal. For added security, the driver has to be in possession of the key and must not leave a radius of 3 m around the vehicle. The system calculates the necessary moves for the parking procedure and the driver selects a given parking scenario. For the vehicle to pull out of a parking space, it must also be unlocked by pressing the button on the key. The vehicle owner performs a continuous confirmation action in order to guide and control the procedure from his/her smartphone. In exploration mode, partially autonomous driving is also possible for several metres without occupants, for example down the garage drive.
In addition to the added comfort provided by the Remote Parking Pilot, it also serves to increase safety at the start and end of your journey.
