  • With external interference of the ultrasound, for instance from passing vehicles or loud machines.

  • Under certain weather conditions, e.g., high relative humidity, wet conditions, snowfall, cold, extreme heat, or strong wind.
  • With tow bars and trailer couplings of other vehicles.
  • With thin or wedge-shaped objects.
  • With moving objects.
  • With elevated, protruding objects such as ledges.
  • With objects with corners, edges, and smooth surfaces.
