Automatic parking system is one of the types of the active parking systems. It serves to park vehicle in an automatic or automated mode. Such systems help with parallel parking, which is the most common for today or perpendicular parking. Due to the concordance of the steering wheel angle and speed of movement the automatic parking occurs.

As a rule, the automatic parking system consists of ultrasonic sensors, switch, electronic module and optical display. The system is activated by a switch on the dashboard if necessary when you need to park. After that the electronic module receives signals from the ultrasonic sensors and converts them into control actions on devices of other automotive systems. In the process of parking all necessary information is displayed on the data display.

Automatic parking system operation is carried out in two stages. Ultrasonic sensors help to find a suitable place for your car on the parking lot. While the car is moving at a certain speed of parking, the sensors record the distance between the cars. When according to the system data the distance is suitable for car parking this information is displayed. After that, the driver must choose - whether to park by himself or to let the car to do it automatically. In addition to this information, the driver can see visual and test instructions on turning the steering wheel at a certain angle and direction of movement.

In order to secure the parking process in the system there is provided switching to manual mode at any time. It is worth noting that most new automated systems can be controlled with the key, while the driver can get out of the car.
