Claims

A method for assisting a driver of a motor vehicle (10) when parking in one of a plurality of parking spaces (16, 18) of a parking zone (14) using a driver assistance device of the motor vehicle (10), the method comprising:

in a training mode of the driver assistance device: recording and storing reference data about a path (24) from a reference starting position (26) to a reference target position (28), while the motor vehicle (10) is driven on said path (24) under driver control; wherein at least one of the parking spaces (16, 18) is reachable from the reference target position (28) using an automated parking system of the driver assistance device, which parking system works without training; and

in a subsequent operating mode different from the training mode: driving the motor vehicle to the reference target position (28) under control of the driver assistance device using the reference data; selecting the parking space (16) and/or the maneuver type of a parking maneuver to be performed by the automated parking system; and parking the motor vehicle (10) into said parking space (16) under control of the automated parking system.

The method according to claim 1 ,

characterized in that the driver assistance device records the reference data about the path (24) in the training mode using at least one sensor for detecting features of the environment (32, 34) in a surrounding area of the path (24).

The method according to claim 2,

characterized in that the automated parking system of the driver assistance device uses the sensor or at least one of the sensors for detecting features of the environment in the surrounding area of the path (24) for parking the motor vehicle (10) into the selected parking space (16).

The method according to any one of the preceding claims,

characterized in that the parking of the motor vehicle (10) into the selected parking space (16) is a parking according to one or more of the following maneuver types of the parking maneuver:

- forward parking,

- reverse parking,

- parallel parking,

- perpendicular parking,

- fishbone parking,

- any other suitable parking maneuver.

5. The method according to any one of the preceding claims,

characterized in that the selection of the parking space and/or the maneuver type of the parking maneuver is a selection performed manually by the driver or an automatic selection performed by the driver assistance device.

6. The method according to any one of the preceding claims,

characterized in that the reference data define reference points (30) of the path (24) trained in the training mode and/or landmark/feature information about the environment in the surrounding area of said path (24).

7. A computer program product comprising computer-executable program code

portions having program code instructions configured to execute the method according to one of claims 1 to 6.

8. A driver assistance device for assisting a driver of a motor vehicle (10) when

parking in one of a plurality of parking spaces (16, 18) of a parking zone (14), wherein the driver assistance device is configured

to record and store reference data about a path (24) from a reference starting position (26) to a reference target position (28) in a training mode, while the motor vehicle (10) is driven on said path (24) controlled by the driver, wherein at least one of the parking spaces (16, 18) is reachable from the reference target position (28) using an automated parking system of the driver assistance device, which parking system works without training;

to drive the motor vehicle (10) to the reference target position (28) under control of the driver assistance device using the reference data in an operating mode different from the training mode;

to provide a selection for selecting the parking space (16) and/or the maneuver

type of a parking maneuver to be performed by the automated parking system; and

to park the motor vehicle (10) into said parking space (16) under control of the automated parking system.

9. The device according to claim 8,

characterized by at least one sensor for detecting features of the environment in at least one surrounding region of the motor vehicle (20, 22), by which the driver assistance device records the reference data about the path (24) in the training mode.

10. The device according to claim 8 or 9,

characterized in that the reference data are data for defining reference points (30) of the path (24) trained in the training mode and/or data of landmark information about environment in the surrounding area of said path (24).
