Opel offers a parking assistance system that puts an end to second-guessing on those coveted parking spaces. It is a perfect tool for car drivers who are hesitant about trying to fill a narrow space, or when it isn’t clear at first glance whether a car will fit, or how to attempt a tough parallel park in the midst of hectic traffic.
Park Assistant makes parking easy: It finds spots into which the vehicle can fit and provides clear instructions via a signal on the dashboard.
The special advantage of the system is that it recognizes spaces which are only one meter longer than the vehicle. Other comparable fully automatic systems need to find spots that are significantly longer than one meter before they set to work.
Park Assistant can be activated as soon as drivers travelling up to 30 kilometers per hour pass 1.8 meters away from a row of cars. As soon as a sensor located on the side of the vehicle recognizes a space, it signals the driver on the central display and begins giving steering instructions. Through ten sensors on the front and back bumpers, the Park Assistant can predict all possible obstacles and send out warning signals in advance.
