automatic car parking system

  1. 1. INTRODUCTION: system any number of cars can be parked floor after floor to reduce the wastage ofThere are two types of car parking systems: area. This is developed by using 8051traditional and automated. In the long term, microcontroller.automated car parking systems are likely tobe more cost effective when compared to HISTORY:traditional parking garages. Automatic Over the years, car parking systems and themulti-storey automated car park systems are accompanying technologies have increasedless expensive per parking slot, since they and diversified. Car parking systems havetend to require less building volume and been around almost since the time cars wereless ground area than a conventional facility invented. In any area where there is awith the same capacity. Both automated car significant amount of traffic, there are carparking systems and automated parking parking systems. Car Parking systems weregarage systems reduce pollution cars are not developed in the early 20th century inrunning or circling around while drivers response to the need for storage space forlook for parking spaces. vehicles. In the 1920s, forerunners of automatedNormally we can see in the multiplexes, parking systems appeared in U.S. citiescinema halls, large industries, and function like Los Angeles, Chicago, Newhalls there is problem they have to go and York and Cincinnati.

A systemimplemented. that is now found all over Japan — the “ferris-wheel,” or paternoster system — was created by the Westinghouse Corporation inThis system is used in big companies, 1923 and subsequently built in 1932 onapartments, shopping malls.

It is quick and efficient inEurope. operation. The micro-controller is interfaced to the PC by serial port through ICL232 which is a dual RS-232 Transmitter/Receiver. Photo sensors, four- phase stepper motor and micro-controller control the entire operation of the car parking control system collectively. The seven segment display and serial interface is used to display the number of cars in the parking lot. Block diagram of the system is shown in figure. Fig1.1: block diagram of system overview 2

Data is transmitted and received in serial „bit stream‟ from one point to another. Four parameters specify an RS-232 link between two devices. These are baud rate, data width, parity and stop bits and are described below. • Baud rate: The baud rate (bits per second) determines how much information is transferred over a given time interval. A baud rate is usually be selected between 110Fig3.3: seven segment display and 76800 baud, e.g. a baud rate of 9600 corresponds to 9600 bits per second. • Data width: The data width can be either 8 bits or 7 bits depending upon the nature of data being transferred. • Parity: The parity bit is used to check the 4

Parity can either be even, odd, or noparity bit can specify at all.• Stop bits: The stop bit is used as theterminator bit and it is possible to specifyeither one or two stop bits.Display and Serial Interfacing ofautomatic car parking :Seven Segment Display: Fig3.4: serial cable detailsThis hardware is used to display the numberof cars in the parking lot. Basically, thisboard has six-segment display but usingonly one display can do our work.Microcontroller Port2 is use to handle thedisplay unit.Serial Interfacing:This unit is to display the number of cars inparking lot on the computer. The computermay be placed in any control room.Serial cable is used in null modem mode.We use the DB9 connector for serialinterfacing. In null modem mode pin 7,8 andpin 6,4 are shorted with each other. Whilepin 3 is used for transmit data and pin 2 forreception 5
  6. 6. Hardware working: whether the floors are fully filled with the cars or is it having place in a particular floorIn car parking control system the basic or not. There is facility of lift to carry the caremphasis on the control of stepper motor by to up and down. Movement of Lift isblocking the sensors beam. Three sensors controlled by stepper motor. An indicatorare used to control one motor. Remaining with a green and red LED is kept in all thehardware is use to display the number of floors to indicate whether the lift is busy orcars in parking lot. Or in other words how is it ready to take the car up or down. If themany times laser beam is blocked. red LED glows that means the lift is already engaged and the person has to wait for the green LED to glow.The 8051 is the brain of this wholehardware. It reads the input signals and start After this the seven segment displaysending the stepping sequences to the motor. incremented its value, which indicates that aWhen the input beam of S1 is blocked motor car has entered in the parking lot. Thisstart rotating in clockwise direction. This display is basically for the people, which aredirection indicates the opening of the driving the car. Similarly, serial interfacingbarrier, where S1 indicates that a car has is also used to display the number of cars income. The S2 sensor is used as the gate the parking lot. This display is for the personopen limit sensor i.e. when S2=on it means in control room.gate is completely opened. Then a delay The exit gate motor will also work on theroutine is called so that a particular time is same pattern. But after this the sevenadjusted for car to cross the gate.

Finally, when S3=on itindicates that gate is completely closed now.So motor will stop rotating.A display is provided at the ground floorwhich is basically a counter that displaysnumber of cars in each floor. It informs 6

If there no parking taking place, the processor carries out the job according to the following priority:- 1. It checks whether any password is entered. 2. It checks whether any car is entered to lift. 3. It checks whether any car headlight is pressed in front of LDR placed in each floor.Fig4: block diagram of automatic car parking Following are the main sections in this model. When a person needs to come down from a 4.1 Display sectionparticular floor to ground floor, he isexpected to focus the headlight onto the 4.2 Keyboard, indicator & Beeper sectionLDR placed in that floor.

As soon as it isor go up, the program either decrements the entered, the program checks it with thecount or increments the count automatically already stored passwords. If it is correct,according to the going up or coming down YELLOW LED glows. If the enteredof a car.

Block diagram of thissection is shown. The indicator section contains 2 LED‟s , RED & GREEN which are present in all the floors. RED LED signifies that the lift is presently busy and shall not entertain any car to enter but if GREEN LED glows, it suggests that the lift is ready and the car can enter the particular floor. Beeper and LEDs are connected to port C upper of 8255. One more advantage of beeper is that; when a person tries to enter the lift irrespective of finding the display section to be FFF (means the floors are already filled), program sends a signal to Beeper section and it starts beeping indicating that he is notFig4.1: block diagram of display sec supposed to enter the lift since all the floors4.2 KEYBOARD, INDICATOR & BEEPER: are already filled.In this section,12 switches are connected inmatrix form and it has three LED‟s , RED, 8
