Document Type


Publication Date



Current parking assist systems are designed to aid the driver. A new concept for a parking assist system was designed to help other drivers. Sixteen participants completed this usability study to evaluate the intuitiveness of the parking assist concept. The results showed that all of the participants understood the purpose of the system without any explanation. Participants provided valuable suggestions for future iterations. The majority of the participants would like to have a similar parking assist system on their own vehicle as well as using it while parking. Future efforts are suggested prior to incorporating this concept on a production vehicle.
