Exterior Car Parking Assistance Algorithm Based on Reconfigurable System for Future Industry
Keywords:Exterior car parking assistance, Embedded system, Hardware software co-design, Reconfigurable SoC
A car accident while parking the car is caused by the car driver, who is invisible around the car. However, there are no solutions for parking assistance when the driver is outside the car. The objective of this paper is to propose a reconfigurable embedded system design by voice controlled parking assistance system for a prototype electric vehicle connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth. Hardware and software co-design using the Xilinx VIVADO as a software design tool is introduced. We design the hardware and software on an ARM multicore processor and the reconfigurable system board model ZYBO: XC7Z010 by considering it as hardware accelerator. The hardware of the proposed voice controlled exterior car parking assistance system is installed on the miniature electric vehicle. The experiments are tested successfully at the parking area for both reverse parking and reverse parallel parking. This proposed system is better suited for users so that they can control their car comfortably while parking safely.
