Volvo XC90: Driver support / Using Park Assist Pilot

(Option/accessory.)

Park Assist Pilot (PAP1) helps the driver park using three different steps. The function can also help the driver pull out of a parking space.

The function measures the space and steers the vehicle. The driver's role is to:

  • keep close watch of the area around the vehicle
  • follow the instructions on the center display
  • change gears (reverse/forward) – an audible signal indicates when the driver needs to change gears
  • regulating and maintaining a safe speed
  • applying the brakes and stopping the vehicle.

Information about the actions required by the driver are provided in the center display using symbols, graphics and/or text.

The function can be activated if the following criteria have been met after the engine is started:

  • No trailer is hitched to the vehicle
  • Your vehicle's speed is lower than 30 km/h (20 mph).

NOTE

The distance between the vehicle and parking spots should be 0.5–1.5 meters (1.6–5.0 ft) when the function is looking for parking.

Parking with Park Assist Pilot

The function helps park the vehicle using the following steps:

  1. The system searches for and measures potential parking spaces.
  2. The vehicle is steered while it is backing into the parking space.
  3. The vehicle is positioned in the parking space (the driver may be prompted to shift gears and apply the brakes).

  • Activate the turn signals on the driver's side – the system will then search for space to park on that side of the vehicle instead.

The function will switch off automatically and a graphic and message will appear to indicate that parking has been completed. Adjustments can always be made be the driver afterward. Only the driver can determine when the vehicle is correctly parked.

CAUTION

The warning distance is shorter when the sensors are used by Park Assist Pilot (PAP1) compared to when they are used by the Parking Assist system.

Auto-brake during a parking sequence

If, while parking, the parking sensors detect a vehicle or pedestrian in the vehicle's intended direction of travel behind or in front of the vehicle, the auto-brake function will bring the vehicle to a standstill.

A pop-up message will then appear in the instrument panel and the driver can tap Cancel to cancel the parking sequence or Resume to continue the parking sequence.

After selecting Resume:

  • Check that the area around the vehicle is free of obstructions and follow the instructions on the center display, such as:

    To continue – Gently accelerate away from object.
