Hey there !

This is a car I made a year ago, and I never posted here.
Recently I saw a dedicated LegoTechnic and Mindstorms Forum opened, so I decided to share my creation :

This is a self parking car. The light sensor detects an empty space big enough, then the car make manoeuvre.

Thanks !
The conception of the car was rather quick, but the programmation phasis was very long. the biggest difficultie was with the motor control. Indeed, I didn't have a rotation sensor, so all the motor are controlled by time. This was the longest thing to do


Thanks furious !
