Drivers can engage the former with the tap of a button, after which it will handle all scanning, shifting, steering, accelerating, and braking, while the driver remains in the vehicle to oversee the maneuver and make sure the tech works properly.
Also part of this feature is the system’s perpendicular mode, which drivers can select to tackle perpendicular parking spaces.
Meanwhile, with Park Out Assist, the driver would need to control the accelerator, gear-shift, and brakes, with the system managing steering, according to a report by Construction Week's sister title PMV Middle East..
“Many of our models — including the Edge, Escape, Explorer, and Expedition — come with the Enhanced Active Park Assist,” marketing manager of Ford Middle East, Jamie Rae, said.
“Building on our previous tech, it’s designed to help drivers through all sorts of difficult parking situations.”
