Modern cars are developed to be more safe for occupants and consume less fuel. Hence, C-pillars became wider, resulting in a worse surround view in the back of the car. However, when reversing into a parking space, the rear of the car is important to the drivers: accident statistics show that accidents with personal damage occur most often when turning or reversing. The goal of our work is to assist drivers during reverse parking without raising his or her mental workload. Our approach is to use an in-vehicle light display to address peripheral vision and thus support drivers while reversing the car. The light cues lead his or her view to the rear of the car and the environment. We developed different designs for the light patterns and evaluated one in a real driving task, but controlled environment. Our first results show, that our system is easy to use and less frustrating compared to an off the shelf park distance control system. However, for best results, we might need to combine both in the future.
