F56 MINI to feature new driver assist systems

F56 MINI to feature new driver assist systems

MINI will also get a new park assist function, which uses ultrasound sensors to detect parking spaces at speeds of under 35 km/h. As soon as a sufficiently large parking space is found – vehicle length plus one metre manoeuvring space – and the system is active, the space will be displayed in the central info display. The automatic parking sequence can then be started at the press of a button, the system will calculate the parking line and the car will park itself. The driver does not need to touch the steering wheel, and only needs to operate the accelerator and brake pedal.
