Although parking is one of the hurdles that we must overcome during our practical driving test, it’s not something that every driver is confident with. Even the most of confident of drivers may hate parking and reversing their vehicle, but it doesn’t necessarily be something that drivers should dread.
Parking sensors are a common component that many drivers look to invest in to make parking much easier and more enjoyable. Gone are the days of slowly edging back and constantly checking your mirrors closely to ensure that you aren’t hitting anything behind you, instead, you are able to smoothly pull into even the most difficult parking space with ease.
How They Work
Parking sensors are used in conjunction with your driving ability to make reversing and parking a much smoother experience.
Parking Sensors that we stock here at Caterham In-Car Systems consist of four parking sensors which can be discreetly placed onto the rear of the vehicle so that when in reverse, the sensors will be able to detect any objects which may be behind the vehicle.
As you get closer to any object which is behind you, a series of beeps will be emitted by the system and will increase in tempo the closer you get to it. This is to give you an indication of how much further you can reverse safely.
Ideally, you won’t want to wait until the tempo is incredibly fast, as this will indicate that you are extremely close to the object behind you. It really does rely on your judgement, but it does help smoothen the parking experience up for even the most experienced drivers.
There are even front parking sensors which are available to be installed onto the front of your vehicle to make parking even more accurate. If required, you can also request a visual aid in the form of a LED display to help you gauge your parking and reversing options.
Even if you have a tow bar or a large spare wheel on the back of your vehicle, you can still use the Parking Sensors!
