Smart Parking Spotter Project Coming Up

I’ve started posting my Parking Spotter Project. Should have it fully documented over weekend.

Nice @wackware! Another one to add to my ever-growing list of projects. :slight_smile:

Out of curiosity, what’s your response to the Tennis Ball question?


The answer is…
We have a 4 car garage and I told her that I don’t want to be bumping into hanging fuzzy balls all the time. :grin:

Besides my next Rev will block the door from closing if the car is not all the way in. She already has scratches on her bumper from the door coming down on it.

Still waiting to get updated tiles from ST for this device.


@wackware, what do you mean “updated tiles”?

Garage door tiles with car inside.

@wackware, any reason you chose to use the 3-pin Ultrasonic sensor over the 4-pin from the Instructables? The 3-pin seems to be much cheaper. Scratch that. I was wrong about pricing.

These, however, are very cheap in comparison. Wonder what the difference is…
