In the third Sprinter generation, it is the first time that two different parking assistance packages are available. Both support the driver in parking and manoeuvring situations by improving perception with the aid of ultrasonic sensors. The Parking Package with Reversing Camera warns the driver of obstacles by means of visual and acoustic signals. The sensor system covers all sectors to the rear of the vehicle. The Parking Assist visual warning and the image from the reversing camera are shown on the multimedia display. In addition, dynamic auxiliary lines make manoeuvring easier. As additional support for the driver in all manoeuvring situations, the reversing camera also offers a trailer zoom and a 180-degree view.

Even better all-round visibility is provided by the Parking Package with 360-degree Camera with four cameras mounted at the rear end of the vehicle roof, in the two exterior mirrors and in the radiator grille. The multimedia display shows a panoramic bird’s eye view of the entire vehicle as well as other individual views, thus providing an overview in tricky parking and manoeuvring situations.

The Side Protection function is included in the Parking Package. If the system detects an obstacle at the side of the vehicle, the continuously-changing distance between the obstacle and the vehicle is determined. A computer model simulates the area on the side of the vehicle between the sensors. Depending on the distance to the obstacle, the system emits a multi-stage visual and audible warning, as familiar from PARKTRONIC. The side protection function is active up to a speed of 12 km/h and for vehicles with automatic transmission when the vehicle’s transmission is in position D, R or N – i.e. when driving forward or in reverse, and in the neutral transmission position.

The Drive Away Assist function is another component of the Parking Package which, in combination with an automatic transmission, provides assistance when pulling away and helps to prevent collisions caused by putting the vehicle into the wrong gear or confusing the brake and accelerator pedals. If an obstacle is additionally detected in or around the vehicle’s path, the system limits the speed to 3 km/h for the first metre.

The Rear Cross Traffic Alert system can warn visually and acoustically if crossing traffic is detected when reversing out of a parking space. In such cases, emergency braking can be initiated automatically if required (only in conjunction with Blind Spot Assist).

The vehicle exit warning system is part of the Blind Spot Assist system and monitors the blind spot sector when the driver/co-driver exits the vehicle. It has a run-on time of three minutes after the ignition is switched off. If opening a door would cause a danger from following traffic, a red warning signal appears in the glass of the exterior mirror and an audible warning is triggered.

The Blind Spot Assist system warns the driver if it detects that a change of lane would result in the risk of a collision. Short-range radar sensors located on both sides of the rear bumper monitor the area immediately to the sides of and behind the vehicle. In this way, they can detect when another vehicle in the “blind spot” of the exterior mirror is travelling in the adjacent lane. In such situations, the system informs the driver by means of a red warning signal in the exterior mirror glass. If the driver overlooks this warning and actuates the turn signal to change lanes, an acoustic warning signal also sounds.

The Active Lane Keeping Assist system was further developed to reduce the risk of an accident caused by an inattentive or overtired driver. For this reason, the focus is on providing an effective and clear warning to the driver; this active intervention in the vehicle handling process only takes place when the driver fails to react and an emergency situation might arise. From a speed of 60 km/h, the system detects when the vehicle accidentally drifts out of its lane. A camera checks whether the broken or solid lane markings on the carriageway are crossed. If the system detects a deviation from the standard, the driver is warned by means of a strong vibration of the steering wheel and optical signals in the event of an accidental lane change, for example. If the driver fails to react when crossing an unbroken road marking despite a vibration warning, Active Lane Keeping Assist returns the vehicle to its lane using a one-sided brake application.
