Front and rear parking sensors

Parking sensors, also referred to as proximity sensors, are installed on cars, either on the front or back bumper, to help the driver navigate the proximity of any objects behind them.  They assess closeness to an imminent object, either in-front or behind, and warn the driver if they get too close. 

For example, if there is a wall behind you when you are parking, the parking sensor will begin beeping once it comes into range of the wall. The beep gets faster the closer you approach, until it becomes a continuous beep, which indicates, if you drive any closer, you will hit the object. Some parking sensors can be fitted with a visual display on the infotainment system too.

Parking sensors often come into play when a reverse gear has been engaged, or by pressing a button on the dash, or when you are driving up to an object, wall or car, at a very slow speed.
