The new S-Class gets “Remote Parking Assist”

The new S-class gets “Remote Parking Assist” along with the other features as published in the previous post.

Remote Parking Assist: Remote Parking Assist enables the driver to manoeuvre the vehicle into tight parking spaces or garages by smartphone, so as to facilitate entering and alighting from the vehicle. The vehicle can be manoeuvred into parallel and end-on parking spaces in both forward and reverse direction. Manoeuvring out of end-on parking spaces is also possible, e.g. if the driver returns to their vehicle to find that it has been blocked in. In Explore mode the vehicle can be manoeuvred straight forward or in reverse out of narrow garages, for example, by up to fifteen metres, avoiding detected obstacles. In narrow passageways, following confirmation by the driver, the vehicle is able to fold in the exterior mirrors so that it can approach the detected obstacle more closely (e.g. narrow garage entrance).

Choice of modular packages

The range of driving assistance systems is modular in structure: as standard equipment the S-Class features Active Braking Assist, Crosswind Assist, ATTENTION ASSIST and COMAND Online with Traffic Sign Assist and Car-to-X communication.

The components of the optional Driving Assistance Package are Active Distance Control DISTRONIC, Active Steering Assist, Active Speed Limit Assist, Active Braking Assist with cross-traffic function, Evasive Steering Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, route-based speed adaptation and PRE-SAFE® PLUS (also takes into account hazardous situations caused by following traffic, e.g. a rear-end collision).

Also available on request are the Parking package with reversing camera, the Parking package with 360° camera and the Remote Parking package. The driver can therefore decide which parking procedure is most convenient: supported from the driver’s seat by the 360° camera and assisted manoeuvring of the Active Parking Assist (accelerator, brake, steering, gear changes) or as an additional option from outside the vehicle with the aid of Remote Parking Assist.
