"Autonomous Parking RC Car"

A RC car that can identify a parking space and parallel park by itself is created. The RC car drives down a street searching for a parking space to its right using several distance sensors. When the car has identified a space, the car checks to see whether that space is large enough to park in. If it determines that there is sufficient space, the car will begin parallel parking into that space. It uses information from sensors placed on the front, right, and rear of the car to direct the car into the parking space. Once the car has parked, it will remain in that position until it is reset.
