Many people are not good at street parking

The more difficult part of driving is the on-street parking with parked vehicles in front of and behind the parking space.

In the driving training class, the roadside parking is based on the fence, but when parking on the roadside, it is more difficult for the front and rear vehicles to grasp the position than the fence, and the vehicles coming from behind will also give driving pressure. These factors will make everyone feel that it is better than the fence. It's even harder when the driving classes stop.

It's hard to find a place where you can park on the road, but if you are not confident about parking on the road, you have to drive to find another parking lot. To steer a car however you want, you have to master this skill, but it doesn't happen overnight.

Vehicles with a smaller minimum turning radius, such as light vehicles and small vehicles, have more flexible bodies and are less difficult to park on the road. However, because the car cannot slide laterally, there are still people who drive small cars who are not good at parking on the road.

Many people should have thought that if the tires of the car can be turned 90 degrees laterally, they can park on the side of the parking grid and slide directly into the parking grid.

ZF Corporation, a German automotive equipment supplier, has announced an epoch-making system that can "half fulfillment" of aspirations.

The tires are almost level! It's called "EasyTurn"


ZF Corporation has released a concept product called "EasyTurn", which is a MacPherson suspension system that makes the tire angle level.

Generally, the steering angle of the tires of passenger cars is designed to be about 35 degrees, while the maximum steering angle of EasyTurn tires can reach 80 degrees.

Because the tire angle can be turned nearly horizontal, even if the parking space is small, it can easily complete the roadside parking. When turning on a road with limited width, there is no need to back out a little space before turning.

In the future, people who are not good at street parking will cease to exist?

This kind of technology that simplifies parking is expensive due to the complexity of the system. Only some high-priced models are equipped with driving assistance functions such as automatic driving.

In addition to increasing the tire angle, the advantages of EasyTurn are simple in structure and low in installation cost. Although the EasyTurn is equipped with the development of the body structure, ZF believes that the EasyTurn can become a product that is quite suitable for electric vehicles.

Although it is still in the conceptual stage, if the tire angle can be close to the level like EasyTurn in the future, there should be fewer people who are not good at parking on the road.
