Parking could be a problem of many because of unavailability of proper spaces or congestion or personal difficulty in parking abilities. Sometimes, the difficulties can also result from having no clear rear and side views. As a solution to these concerns, Toyota’s new additional parking technology elevates the ease of parking experience. Toyota’s parking aid helps you in maneuvering your car smoothly into spaces that are difficult to fit. The technological guidance ensures you gain confidence in parking with a clear view to avoid bumps and scratches.
Intelligent Parking Assist (IPA)
Toyota’s parking technology has an Intelligent Parking Assist (IPA) feature that gives you detailed instruction to smoothly park your car in a garage or public space. As you engage the reverse gear, you just need to select the IPA button and choose the empty space to park your car on the rear camera monitor. Thereafter, the IPA instructs you in every step to steer your car into the space. It provides necessary instructions about the acceleration, braking, distance to move forward or backward. All you need to do is follow the instruction as it is as per the system’s assistance.
At the time of parking, IPA identifies the parking spot and controls the steering wheel for the driver’s convenience. However, it is the responsibility of the driver to control the speed and stop the car as required. With the help of a display screen, the system instructs the driver when to drive or reverse or stop with an indicator bar that signals how close the vehicle is to an object. It also features a stop sign that appears when the driver has to stop for successful parking.
Parking Distance Sensor
Toyota’s parking sensors help you in parking the car without any stress or scratch even in the most difficult spaces. It helps you in building confidence in steering the wheel the right way and places your car in the right spot. The sensors detect the distance of other cars and objects around you with the help of its ultrasonic wave technology. It thus allows you to calculate the space and maneuver your car accordingly. Placed into the front and rear bumpers, the sensors give a clear warning with a bleep tone and a visual display whenever your car comes close to an obstruction. The sensors also get automatically activated once the reverse gear is on. It warns you of any obstruction whether it is visible to you or not. The Toyota Parking Distance Sensor, therefore, lets you be aware of the empty spaces, other objects around, and the distance.
Rear View Camera Display
Toyota features its rear view camera at the back as additional safety for clear view of the obstacles behind the car. As you steer into the parking space on reverse gear, you can see a bright colour display on the dashboard reflected from the back of the car. The reflection indicates the car has come too close to an obstacle, warning you to avoid. It also guides you to easily steer into the space by providing a predicted path to confidently steer your wheel as smoothly as possible.
The technology helps in resolving a lot of parking issues, ranging from lacking confidence to avoiding car damages. It improves one’s parking abilities with clear instruction that is automatized with the help of various sensors and cameras, indicating the distances of obstacles.
