Robotics: Self-Parking Challenge

New cars are fully loaded with technology. Manufacturers are working on new systems to facilitate the driving experience. Self-parking systems will soon be available on most cars.

Let’s look at what the technology can do:

Your Challenge

Build and program a robot that can scan a parking bay to find an an empty space and park itself in this space.

Our recommendations:

To complete this robotics challenge we recommend the following technology:

  • Lego Mindstroms – NXT
  • Echanting Software

If you are familiar with the Scratch user interface, then you will love Enchanting as it provides a Scratch based user Interface for your Lego Mindstorms NXT robot.
