Self Study Program 389 – ParkAssist

VAG SSP 389 – ParkAssist Design and function PDF. The new ParkAssist from Volkswagen is one example of the increased capability of assistance systems. ParkAssist actively helps the driver when reversing into parallel parking spaces.

Driver assist systems are developed to relieve the burden on drivers due to the increasingly dense  traffic and the flood of information that they have to deal with. These aids support drivers in certain driving  situations or take over driving procedures either completely or partly.

As computer performance rises and the production costs of electronic components fall, it is not  surprising that Volkswagen is offering an increasing number of more powerful assist systems.
