Abstract/Summary

The Auto-Parking Vehicle Prototype 2 is an off-the-shelf four-wheeled mobile robot that has the ability to autonomously park in a given parking space that can accommodate its dimensions. Infrared sensors are mounted on the vehicle in order to keep track of its displacement with respect to other vehicles in the parking area and reference walls. The dimensions of a free parking space are measured through the use of the information obtained from the infrared sensors. The robot will measure the spaces between cars that are already parked on the area. The system determines which parking method to use through the measurements of the free parking space and then executes the appropriate parking algorithm. The desired orientation of whether or not the vehicle must face the wall for perpendicular parking, can be chosen by means of a switch.
