|opis:||Our invention is mainly used to solve the night parking problem on streets, and to increase its efficiency. Since in some cities with high population density, such as Macao, the government will open part of the roads for citizens to park their car at a specific time at night. However, there are no lines for reference as usual. Therefore, there are usually big gaps between cars, causing this policy is not working very efficiently.
Our system consists of LED lights of two different colours, ultrasonic sensor and Arduino. The area of the parking spaces for each car is shown by LED lights, which will only light up during that specific time at night. Also, the lights change color to show difference parking situations. For example, in our model the lights are green when there isn’t any car parking in the space, and it turns yellow when a car is parked. As a result, our system doesn’t only decrease the time for finding parking space, but also save more parking space.
Here are the steps of using our system. First, park your car well according to the indicator lights. Then, use our app to scan the QR code placed besides. When it’s about the time to pick up your car, the app will send a message in order to remind you to pick up your car us soon as possible. Moreover, you can check the number of parking spaces left of each street via our app to find your most ideal parking place.
According to the data we collected, if there are 180 cars influenced by our system, we can help to reduce about 137,970 Litres of oil consumption every year, which accounted for about 1,545 million patacas. On the other hand, we can even reduce about 21.5 tonnes of carbon dioxide emission every year, just by reducing the waiting time for cars to be parked.
In conclusion, there are three main characteristics about our system, they are efficiently, effectively, and environmentally friendly.
