Trying to back your truck up to your trailer can be such a pain! Some even need others to stand back behind the vehicle and guide them. Well there is actually A technology that will solve that issue for you! Trailer Backup Assist is a system that has been in development for 5 years! This is an easy, quick system for people to use now. The system can store up to as many as 10 trailers, each as long as 33 feet.
The only thing you really have to do is program the computer to work with any trailer which is around a 10 min process and add a black and white sticker to the hitch so the rear camera-based system can keep track of what the trailer is doing and boom your all set! The driver just has to turn a knob on the dash, and the truck does the rest! The rear camera gives the computer a reference angle using the black and white sticker for reference, limiting the truck’s rearward speed as the angle of the trailer increases. The features as of right now does NOT work for gooseneck trailers though, but with time you never know what technology will be able to accomplish!
