BOURBONNAIS, IL – This week in Ford news it was announced that Ford Motor Company has improved on the idea of a self-parking car. It is still in the early stages of development so there are very few details such as what model it will be available on. Tested in Belgium, the new technology has been termed Fully Assisted Parking Aid. It will allow the vehicle to be parked with or without you behind the wheel.
Already available in some Ford models is a technology called Self-Park Assist. Although very similar to the Fully Assisted Parking Aid, you must be physically in the vehicle to control the brake and accelerator. Fully Assisted Parking Aid will be able to operate steering, gas, brake and gear selection as well as make sure that the vehicle is parked properly in the intended space. The new technology will be designed to handle both angled as well as perpendicular parking spaces. It will be and ideal option for those that have parking anxiety or those who are simply bad at parking!
In the following video it is shown in both computer generated imaging and real world testing of the Fully Assisted Parking Aid on a Ford Focus. Check it out!
