Object Detection Systems
Ultrasonic Front and Rear Parking
Assist (UFRPA)
For vehicles with the Ultrasonic Front and Rear Parking
Assist (UFRPA) system, it operates at speeds less
than 5mph (8 km/h), and assists the driver with parking
and avoiding objects. It can determine how close
objects are to the front bumper, up to 4 feet (1.2 m)
in front of the vehicle and the rear bumper, up to
8 feet (2.5 m) behind the vehicle. The distance sensors
are located on the front and rear bumper.
The Ultrasonic Front and Rear Park Assist
(UFRPA) system does not replace driver vision.
It cannot detect:
? objects that are below the bumper,
underneath the vehicle, or if they are too
close or far from the vehicle
? children, pedestrians, bicyclists, or pets.
If you do not use proper care before moving
forward and while backing; vehicle damage, injury,
or death could occur. Even with UFRPA, always
check in front of your vehicle before moving
forward and behind your vehicle before backing
up. While moving forward and backing, be sure to
look for objects and check your vehicle?s mirrors.
