Porsche Cayenne Can Help You Park With Its Remote Park Assist


Driving is certainly an experience and we all know that sometimes, parking can be too. I mean, let’s face it. We’ve all been there. You’re trying to park in a parking space that is so narrow you need to be a contortionist to get out of your car. You know, those crowded bays where every inch counts. This is where the new Porsche Cayenne can slip in with particular elegance. It’s all made possible by Remote Park Assist, a convenience feature chock-full of high tech.

Remote Park Assist is based on smart assistance systems like parking spot search. This is a feature that detects and highlights suitable parking spots for your vehicle when you drive past them. All the driver has to do is stop and simply activate Remote Park Assist. It doesn’t matter whether the parking space is located on the left or right side of the street, whether it’s a parallel parking spot or at a right angle, or whether for the latter the car needs to park forward or in reverse. Remote Park Assist will be able to take care of things all with a simple tap of your finger on your smartphone.

How does it work? The driver presses and holds the OK button in the app until the vehicle has finished automatically parking. The car can even negotiate its way around narrow garages. The clever thing here is that the driver doesn’t even need to be behind the wheel. He can get out beforehand and just watch the car park itself.

This all may sound very simple, but it’s actually a very complex system. There are four high-tech processors in the central driver assistance control unit (CDAC) that coordinate twenty additional control units. These evaluate data from twelve ultrasonic sensors in real time. Remote Park Assist with Surround View uses four individual cameras to compute a 360-degree view that helps with parking and maneuvering. The car moves with an optimal level of caution, precision, and safety.

The Remote Park Assist has safety in mind though. If it detects things like a pedestrian, a high curb, any other disturbance, the system interrupts parking or will make an automatic adjustment. Oh and if you need to, the parking process can be paused by remote control at any time.
