Smart Car Parking System with ALS Sensor using myRIO

Atul Goyal, Sanamdeep Singh, Shilpi Kumari


This project deals with the design of an intelligent car parking monitoring system utilizing ultra-sonic sensor, DC motor where as an ambient light sensor using myRIO controller in LabVIEW. The system focuses on low power sensor based system, designed to monitor the number of vehicles entering the parking and to control the light intensity required for sufficient lighting in the parking area. The system is designed to be implemented in modern day car parking lots in companies, apartments and mall etc, with minimum disturbance and installation costs. Ambient light sensor utilizes its ability of measuring light intensity to use available electrical energy efficiently in parking area. Depending on present intensity of light in parking area, it switches ON/OFF different light equipment in that area
