If you live in or around Cherry Hill, New Jersey, and you are thinking about upgrading your car for a new one, there are several innovative features you should consider before purchasing a new ride.
For example, one “can’t miss” new feature installed in new Nissan vehicles is an Around View Monitor that assists with parking. It’s great for drivers who dread parallel parking in tight spaces. Imagine having to worry less about backing over something and blowing out a tire or backing into a pole and damaging you rear bumper. That’s the kind of peace of mind this new technology offers.
Let’s look a little closer at this innovative feature.
What exactly is Around View Monitoring with park assist?
If you find parking tricky, then this innovative Nissan feature is definitely for you. The technology helps drivers by automatically operating the steering while backing up or backing into a parking space. The system uses footage taken from the Around View Monitor with allows the driver to have a complete bird’s eye view of the surroundings.
That means, as a driver of a new Nissan with this technology, all you have to do when parking is take a glance at the monitor, which shows your surroundings, and then determine the position you want to park your car. The system then takes it from there and the vehicle steers itself into the parking position you select while giving you audio signals along the way. All the while, you maintain operation of the accelerator and the braking. Easy, care-free parking is now possible for everyone with just a few simple steps:
- Simply stop the vehicle next to the parking spot you want. Look at the monitor to select where you want to park.
- You operate the accelerator and brakes to control the speed while the vehicle begins to steer itself into the parking space.
- When the system gives you a signal, it means the car is near the proper position and you apply the brakes.
- The system gives you the signal with parking is achieved, and you’re done. Simple and hassle-free parking.
How does Around View Monitoring with park assist actually work?
If you really want the details on how this great feature works, the system relies on four cameras on the vehicle’s body. There’s a camera in the front, in the rear, and on both wing mirrors on the sides of the car. The footage that is taken is converted by the system into a complete birds-eye image for you so that you know everything surrounding the vehicle.
The system uses the bird’s eye image itself to determine the surroundings of the vehicle. That allows it to take control of the steering to guide you into a parking spot without hitting the curb or another vehicle.
