Parking space measurement system
Citing the C4 Picasso as the "world's first car to feature integratedparking space measurement," Bosch apparently hopes to get its ownsnazzy parking assistant on more rides in the future. The systemutilizes six total sensors on the front / rear of the vehicle to gaugeparking space dimesntions (and alert you of obstacles) while cruisingby at up to 12.5-miles per hour, and can inform the driver if the spacehe / she is eying is too small, "a tight squeeze," or just right. Thesystem initiates the measuring process when the motorist tags a buttonon their steering wheel, and looks to the right or left depending onwhich turn signal is in use.
