The BMW Parking Assistant (also called BMW Park Assistant) is BMW's automatic parking system. While traveling at speeds less than approximately 22 mph the system will automatically scan for parking spots. Appropriate parking spaces will be shown on the Control Display. Once a spot has been selected the car will help you park by taking care of the steering (and gear selection on some vehicles) while you control the throttle and brakes. The car uses traditional parking sensors (and a camera on some models) to let you know when to stop and switch directions.
