Claim of US Patent No. 9,807,352

1. A method for assisting a driver to perform a reverse parking process of a motor vehicle equipped with an advanced parking
guidance system into a longitudinal parking space, the method comprising:
generating an image of surroundings of the rear of the motor vehicle through a rear-view camera system, wherein the image
of the surroundings of the rear of the motor vehicle is displayed on a display device in the motor vehicle and includes two
first 3D symbols blended into the image displayed on the display device generated by the rear-view camera system, wherein
positions of the two first 3D symbols in the image are based on the image generated by the rear-view camera system, wherein
a distance between the two first 3D symbols corresponds to a minimum parking space for the motor vehicle; and

receiving selection of one side for the parking process,
wherein the selection of the one side causes the first 3D symbols of the other side of the vehicle to be faded out of the
image displayed on the display device.
