Now days in many multiplex systems there is a severe problem for car parking systems.
There are many lanes for car parking, so to park a car one has to look for the all lanes.
Moreover there is a lot of men labor involved for this process for which there is lot of investment.
So the need is to develop a system which indicates directly which parking slot is vacant in any lane.
The project involves a system including infrared transmitter and receiver in every lane
and a LED & LCD display outside the car parking gate. So the person entering parking area can view the
LED display and can decide which lane to enter so as to park the car.
Conventionally, car parking systems does not have any intelligent monitoring system.
Parking lots are monitored by human beings. All vehicles enter into the parking
and waste time for searching for parking slot. Sometimes it creates blockage.
Condition become worse when there are multiple parking lanes and each lane have multiple parking slots.
Use of automated system for car parking monitoring will reduce the human efforts.
Display unit is installed on entrance of parking lot which will show LEDs for all Parking slot
and for all parking lanes. Empty slot is indicated by the respective glowing LED.
We are going to use Infra Red transmitters and Receivers for each parking slot. The IR Receivers are connected to AVR microcontroller. IR rays are obstructed when a car is parked in any parking slot. Thus AVR will come to know that which slot is empty and which slot is full.
We have chosen IR module instead of RF module because we want a receiver having line of sight communication with the transmitter. But RF does not require line of sight communication. And in case of LDR, there is scope for false triggering due to sunlight or headlight of car. So considering all these points we have finalized to use IR module.
For transmitter section we are going to use IR LEDs driven by a 555 timer IC. Timer IC will generate a frequency of 38 KHz, which will be given to IR LEDs.
1) This project can be used for parking system in any shopping mall, multiplex
2) Can be used for industries, commercial offices and educational institutes.
Question: How much time will it take to reach project by courier?
Answer: Project PCB is ready, so it will take 2 days to complete the proejct. And then 2 to 3 days to courier the project.
Question: What is the maximum number of parking slots that can be connected to this project?
Answer: This depends on number of pins of microcontroller. We can connect 16 slots to the microcontroller. 89s51 microcontroller has total 32 pins, out of which 11 are required for LCD. For LED display we can 4:16 decoder, so it will need 4 pins and then we can connect 16 slots to the remaining pins of microcontroller
Question: Do you have automated parking lot with a robotic arm added to it to to place the car into the available parking slots?
Answer: Thats kind of Electro-Mechanical project. Sorry we don't have pick and place facility for car parking.
