Functional limitations due to radio interference

In the case of radio interference, functional limitations may occur during Remote Control Parking with the BMW display key.

Limits of ultrasonic measurement

Ultrasonic measurements might not function in the following situations:

  • For small children and animals.
  • For persons with certain clothing, for instance coats.
  • With external interference of the ultrasound, for instance from passing vehicles or loud machines.
  • When sensors are dirty, iced over, damaged or out of position.
  • Under certain weather conditions such as high relative humidity, wet conditions, snowfall, extreme heat, or strong wind.

  • With thin or wedge-shaped objects.
  • With moving objects.
  • With elevated, protruding objects such as ledges.
  • With objects with corners, edges, and smooth surfaces.
  • With objects with a fine surface structure such as fences.
  • For objects with porous surfaces.
  • With small and low objects, for instance boxes.
  • With obstacles and persons at the edge of the lane.
