    Parallel Parking can be an enormous problem in developed and developing countries. A Smart Parallel Parking can be a way of parking a vehicle in sequence with the other parked vehicles. Parking vehicle in congested area is incredibly difficult task for the drive. So on in the reduction of these problem we are making all wheels of our vehicle to rotate in 90 degree by the chain system and DC motors in our project. Each wheel of the vehicle is connected to DC motor and each one DC motor of auto are connected to chain system. Chain system is controlled by Bluetooth technology by giving some instructions like forward, backward, left, and right. Bluetooth technology and DC motor was implemented by the synthetic language called Kiel µVision5 Software.

    To reduce this problem our project was implemented with Nuvoton Microcontroller and Kiel µVision5 Software. This project mainly for parallel parking, to make driver task easy and softer, avoid accident and to chop back damage to other parked vehicles. We implemented the ultrasonic sensor in our project to detect an object found before of the vehicle. Using Kiel µVision5 software we written c programming code for DC Ultrasonic sensor.

      Title: Parallel Parking

      In Metropolitan area the most important problem is parking the vehicle. The Vehicle has to park in between the already Parked vehicle. Todays car wheels can rotate up to 60 degree for this driver has to suffer lot to park the vehicle in Small Street and parallel parking. During this paper the author explained about the parallel parking of auto by 90 degree of rotating wheels. This was implemented by the switch activation, which is ready to be simpler for the drive to rotate all the four wheels of the vehicle to tilt 90 degree to park the vehicle.

      Title: Fabrication of Parallel Parking System in vehicle

      In this paper the author had explained about the gear system mechanism for the vehicle. The block diagram consists of 12v battery, Lead screw and Gear System. The instructions to the gear system is given by the Zigbee Module such as forward, backward, left, right. During this mechanism the four auxiliary wheels are connected to the vehicle at a 90 degree to the longitudinal axis of the vehicle. This auxiliary wheel mechanism is connected to the actuators like hydraulic or pneumatic at the underside of the vehicle. When the actuator pushes the mechanism of the four wheels downwards which lift the vehicle upward and whole car is ready to maneuver in transverse direction. The movement of car is controlled by remote controller and also the speed of the auxiliary wheel at the time of movement is 30 rpm. The lead screw is used to provide the soundness to the auxiliary wheels. This mechanism is used as a built-in jack also. This mechanism required less effort and also the fuel consumption may be a smaller amount because the facility taken from the DC geared motor which is connected to the auxiliary wheels.


    In Metropolitan area the biggest problem is parking the vehicle. The Vehicle has to park in between the already Parked vehicle. Todays car wheels can rotate up to 60 degree for this driver has to suffer lot to park the vehicle in Small Street and parallel parking. It is also take time to park the vehicle but in our project we implemented the chain system to the wheels and DC motor. This is mainly based on Nuvoton microcontroller and Bluetooth technology. This makes the driver task easy and more comfortable.

    The Block diagram o our project consist of Nuvoton Microcontroller, Ultrasonic Sensor, Bluetooth, Gear System, Dc motor, Dc motor Drive, Buzzer and Power Supply System.

    Fig2: Block Diagram of System

    Ultrasonic Sensor: Ultrasonic sensors are mainly accustomed measure sound waves with the frequency between 30 kHz to 300 kHz.

    There are 3 differing types of Ultrasonic sensor:

    1. Time of flight for sensing distance

    2. Doppler shift for sensing velocity

    3. Amplitude attenuation (or sensing distance, directivity, or attenuation co-efficient.

      Bluetooth (HC 05): Bluetooth is mainly used for wireless technology with limited distance. In our project we written code for Bluetooth to give instruction to DC motor such as right, left, forward, backward. Bluetooth can configure in both slave and master.

      DC Motor: The Direct Current Motor is a machine. It is mainly used for transmission of electric energy into mechanical energy in form of rotation. The DC Motor is used to rotate the wheels of the vehicle. In our project we connected 4 DC motor to 4 wheels of our project.

      Buzzer: A Buzzer is an audio signaling device. There are 3 different types of Buzzer.

      1. Mechanical

      2. Electromechanical

      3. Piezoelectric

    In our project Buzzer will turn on while travelling any obstacle found in front of the vehicle.


    Fig3: Block Diagram of Power Supply System

    Transformer: It is used either step up or step down the ac signal. It uses the coils mounted on Ferro magnetic materials. Based on the number of terns on input and output sides, the signal will be stepped up or stepped down.

    Rectifier: A rectifier is an electrical device that converts an Alternating Current (AC) into a Direct Current (DC) by using one or more P-n junction diodes.

    When the voltage is applied to the P-N junction diode in such a way that the positive terminal of the battery is connected to the p-type semiconductor and the negative terminal of the battery is connected to the n-type semiconductor, the diode is said to be Forward Biased.

    When the voltage is applied to the P-N junction diode in such a way that the positive terminal of the battery is connected to the n-type semiconductor and the negative terminal of the battery is connected to the p-type semiconductor, the diode is said to be Reverse Biased.

    Filter: An electrical filter is a circuit which can be designed to modify, reshape or reject all the undesired frequencies of an electrical signal and pass only the desired signals. In other words we can say that an electrical filter is usually a frequency selective network that passes a specified band of frequencies and blocks signals of frequencies outside this band.

    Voltage Regulation: It is the supporting system used to keep the voltage level within the range of operation. If the voltage varies, voltage regulator will do some action to keep the voltage in the range of operation.
