We might not notice it on our daily basis but we lose significant amount of time looking for parking space. And we wanted to make an app to target that issue.
What it does
It is a miniature model of a parking lot. We used an Intel Edison to detect the proximity of the vehicles on the parking space and displays the vacant spaces on the entrance display board.
How we built it
We connected the light sensors the the grove base and set up the algorithm to figure out if there are any parking spaces left on the lot.
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Used an IoT for the first time!
What we learned
To program an Intel Edison
What's next for Park-A-Lot
Taking it out to the real world and implementing it.
