Porsche Parking Sensors | Front and Rear Cameras

How Parking Sensors Work

Parking Sensors detect obstacles behind you and also in front of your car if you wish, to aid your parking and enable you to get into those tight spots without damaging your car. Using Ultrasonic technology they emit a cone of sound behind your car which bounces of obstacles behind and returns to the sensor, the time taken for these sound waves to bounce and return off obstructions behind your car is how they calculate the remaining distance behind you. 

This is the same technology that you will be familiar with having seen fitted as OEM equipment on cars from new and are supplied trade to many bodyshops and car dealerships across the country.

Apart from the obvious safety advantages to having reversing sensors, financially parking sensors will pay for themselves even by preventing you from having just one accident!. Regardless of your insurance there is always that "excess" on your policy which is a minimum of £100 these days. Any claims you make could damage your no-claims bonus and would impact on your next year's renewal fees. It will also help you park in confidence in front of people without damaging your pride.
