Archaic To capture. about this scene: We observe the approach of a Passat estate, it stops, the driver gets out, slams the door shut and, as he walks away from the car, he aims a remote control back at it. That car now proceeds to reverse park itself into the available space, it then independently cuts the engine and activates the door locks. End of performance. In reality, there is nothing at all magical about this demonstration. The "Park Assist Vision" is a system with the ability to guide a vehicle with absolute precision into a perpendicular parking space, i.e. the kind available on parking lots and in underground car parks. These parking spaces are often too narrow to allow drivers and passengers to get in and out of the car comfortably. In the not too distant future, "Park Assist Vision" will put an end to that. Hans-Dieter Keller, Managing Director of Volkswagen Middle East states, "Park Assist Vision demonstrates the Volkswagen innovation and leadership in transforming thoughts to reality while considering the needs and expectations of our customers. We seek to offer our clientele the most advanced technologies to facilitate their driving comfort as well as providing them an added value Added value in financial analysis of shares is to be distinguished from value added.

The video signals are transmitted to a 2-GHz high-performance computer which then analyses them and sends commands to the steering and drive systems.
