Are you sure there is NOTHING around? Objects other than vehicles can set them off. As an example, it is not unusual for me to receive a false warning backing into my driveway because of driveway markers, or backing into the paved space directly in front of my house due to the house itself and the angle that I use to back in.
I also receive an occasional false alert backing into my parking space at work because of the shape of the structures and other objects in the immediate area.
Yet in practical use...Parking lots etc... the system works fine.
False alerts will happen. A few weeks ago the GM vehicle I was driving decided that the parked car I was about to pass was a collision threat and applied full emergency braking without warning. These systems are tools, but are not foolproof....
