  • Publication number: 20200398826
    Abstract: A parking assist system includes a control device configured to control screen display of a display device, to set the parking position candidate selected by an occupant as a target parking position, and to control an autonomous parking operation to autonomously move the vehicle to the target parking position. When multiple parking position candidates partially overlapping with each other are detected by a parking position candidate detector, the control device causes the display device to display the multiple parking position candidates so as to partially overlap with each other and to be selectable.
