My friend Ben Wayne came by the other day to film Parking Pilot in the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E300.

Active Parking Assist helps you size up parallel-parking spaces as you drive by, using sensors in the bumper to determine if a spot can fit your car.  It then expertly steers the car into the space while you control the brakes and gear selection.  In any low-speed maneuver, PARKTRONIC’s ultrasonic sensors in the front and rear bumpers help detect nearby objects within the system’s field of view.  Audible signals and illuminated displays in the cabin help you navigate tight spaces with confidence.

The system is able to scan for adequate parking spaces at speeds below 22 mph.

Certain vehicles also have the ability to steer the vehicle out of the parking space.
