    Mercedes-Benz GL-Class: From the fin marker to the 360° camera. The current state of the art is embodied by extended Active Parking Assist and the 360° camera on board the GL-Class. The surrounding area is visualised from different perspectives on the COMAND display, from a complete bird‘s eye panorama to various detailed views which enable pinpoint manoeuvring or reveal crossing traffic which is hidden in blind spots when moving out of narrow exits.

    Mercedes-Benz GL-Class: From the fin marker to the 360° camera. The first real example of efforts to integrate clarity of vision into the general design concept came in 1959, with the Mercedes-Benz passenger car models which came to be known as the “Fintails”. The tail fins served as markers which provided an excellent means of judging the length and width of the body, e.g. during parking.

    Mercedes-Benz GL-Class: From the fin marker to the 360° camera. Even greater precision is offered by Parking Assist, which was introduced for the S-Class in 2005. Instead of ultrasonic sensors, this system employs the radar sensors of DISTRONIC and Brake Assist PLUS. The relevant information is communicated to the driver via displays in the dashboard and rear roof lining and by means of “beep” sounds.

    Mercedes-Benz GL-Class: From the fin marker to the 360° camera. Following the use of extendable markers in 1991 the PARKTRONIC electronic parking aid employing ultrasonic sensors was premiered on the S- and CL-Class in the mid-1990s.
