Park Assist Pilot front, rear and along the sides

Park Assist Pilot has different parameters depending on which part of the car is approaching an obstacle.

Forwards

P5-1507-PAS front

Warning signal, constant tone at less than approx. 30 cm (1 ft) from an obstacle The figure is schematic - parts may vary depending on car model..

The front parking assistance sensors are activated automatically when the engine is started. They are active at speeds below 10 km/h (6 mph).

The measuring range is approx. 80 cm (2.5 ft) in front of the car.

Note

Parking assistance is deactivated when the parking brake is applied or P mode is selected in a car with an automatic gearbox.

Important

When auxiliary lamps are fitted: Remember that these must not obscure the sensors - the auxiliary lamps may then be perceived as an obstacle.

Backwards

P5-1507-PAS rear

Warning signal, constant tone at less than approx. 30 cm (1 ft) from an obstacle The figure is schematic - parts may vary depending on car model..

The sensors for reverse are activated if the car rolls backward without a gear engaged or when the gear lever is moved to reverse position.

The measuring range is approx. 1.5 metres (5 ft) behind the car.

When reversing with a trailer connected to the car's electrical system, parking assistance backward is deactivated automatically.

Note

When reversing with e.g. a trailer or bike carrier on the towbar - without Volvo genuine trailer wiring - parking assistance may need to be switched off manually in order that the sensors do not react to them.

Along the sides

P5+6-1817 PAS-sektorer

Warning signal, intensive pulsing at less than approx. 25 cm (0.8 ft) from an obstacle The figure is schematic - parts may vary depending on car model..

Parking assistance side sensors are activated automatically when the engine is started. They are active at speeds below 10 km/h (6 mph).

The measuring range is approx. 25 cm (0.8 ft) from the sides.

However, the detection area of the side sensors increases significantly when the steering angle of the front wheels is increased, and when the steering wheel is turned, obstacles up to approx. 90 cm (3 ft) diagonally behind or in front of the car can be detected (see also the section "Sensor field to the sides" in the section entitled "Sensor fields from Park Assist Pilot for parking camera").
