Sensor fields for parking assistance system

If the car is equipped with the Parking Assistance System (PAS1) then the distance is shown in the Parking Assistance Camera (PAC2) 360° view with coloured fields for each sensor that registers an obstacle.

Sensor fields backwards and forwards

P5+6-1746 - Park Assist Camera, sensor fields backwards
The screen can show coloured sensor fields on the car symbol.
The fields for the sensors for forwards and reverse change colour as the distance to the obstacle decreases – from AMBER through ORANGE to RED.
Field colour reverseDistance in metres (feet)
Yellow0.6-1.5 (2.0-4.9)
Orange0.3–0.6 (1.0–2.0)
Red0-0.3 (0-1.0)
Field colour forwardsDistance in metres (feet)
Yellow0.6–0.8 (2,0–2.6)
Orange0.3–0.6 (1.0–2.0)
Red0-0.3 (0-1.0)

For RED sensor fields, the pulsating acoustic signal changes over to a constant tone.

Sensor field to the sides

Warning signals depend on the intended route of the car. When the steering wheel is turned, therefore, there may also be a warning for obstacles diagonally in front of or diagonally behind the car, not just straight ahead or directly behind.

  2. P5-Icon red circle 2Obstacle sector in the car's intended route forwards – depending on steering wheel angle
  3. P5-Icon red circle 3Sector with RED field colour and intensively pulsing tone
  4. P5-Icon red circle 4Right-hand side rear sensor field
  5. P5-Icon red circle 5Obstacle sector in the car's intended route in reverse – depending on steering wheel angle.
The colour of the side fields changes with reduced distance to the obstacle – from AMBER to RED.
Colour of side fieldsDistance in metres (feet)
Yellow0.25–0.9 (0.8–3.0)
Red0–0.25 (0–0.8)

In the case of RED sensor fields, the acoustic signal changes from pulsing to intensively pulsing.
