When the motive force engages reverse gear, rear parking sensors get activated automatically and send ultrasonic waves. When these waves hit the nearby object, they get reflected and are captured again by the sensors. supported the time elapsed between sending and recapturing of waves, ECU calculates the space of the article from the vehicle.
Once the vehicle approaches an object, the system alerts the driving force by an audible tone or signal on the dashboard. because the vehicle advances further towards the article, the intensity of the alarm tone amplifies thereby signaling the motive force to prevent the vehicle. additionally, to those sensors, some vehicle manufacturers also provide cameras to urge a more accurate view of the world behind the vehicle.
