Volkswagen unveils its fleet parking technologyFebruary 16, 2020
The German company compared the parking assistance system installed on his Crafter van with the skills of a professional driver.
The Park Assist system and the Alastair Moffat stuntman were compared in the Volkswagen Crafter van parking professionalism. However, Moffat was entrusted with a slightly more complicated task – to park a huge commercial car on a “parking brake”.
The place of the “battle” in the parking lot was fenced with cardboard boxes. Moffat was the first to show his skills, which were fixed by the built-in ultrasound. Then parking was carried out by Park Assist technology.
Sarah Cox, marketing director for Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, said the installation of a high-tech driver assistance kit, such as Park Assist, was part of the brand’s attempt to help VW commercial vehicle owners successfully drive vehicles.
“We want to help our customers park their vans in the safest and most accurate way so they can avoid parking fines and reduce stress,” she said.
Alastair Moffatt, who set world records for various types of parking, said that the handling characteristics of the van helped him install the car in a limited space.
