In this way, when we press the park assist button, the car is in charge of examining the closest places we are driving through, with a maximum distance of 1.5 meters and a speed of about 30 km / h. In this way, when the parking assistant detects that there is a gap that is valid for us, it will notify us and we will have to place the car in the position indicated by the screen.
Then we only have to accelerate, brake, put the first gear or reverse gear and park the car. The system controls the direction and, thanks to the sensors, it will place the vehicle in the square found, both on battery and online.
