With Trailer Assist, drivers do not need to rethink the situation when reversing with a trailer. They no longer need to turn the steering wheel to the left to move the trailer to the right, or vice versa. In general, the system also makes it easier to reverse precisely in a straight line. To reverse with a trailer, the driver starts by selecting reverse gear and presses a button to activate the system. The steering angle is then indicated on the instrument cluster. The driver can set the intended direction using the mirror adjustment switch that functions like a joystick. The car receives the steering commands given by the system and the driver only needs to operate the accelerator and brakes. The power assisted steering is automatically operated to move the trailer in the required direction.
