BMW 5 Series: Parking Maneuvering Assistant

The Parking Maneuvering Assistant (PMA) supports the driver in many ways. The assistant measures the size of a gap between cars and decides, based on the result, whether the gap is large enough to accommodate the vehicle. It also relieves the driver of the task of maneuvering into the space.
