91C Cyclops Parallel Parking Robot

91C’s parallel parking robot is used to help teach incoming drivers how to parallel park. It gives an outside view on the specifics of parallel parking and a realistic automation. The car has an autonomous and a driver mode. The automated version uses a gyroscope to tell the angle of the car and keep it straight, 4 ultrasonic sensors to tell where the car is relative to the boxes and wall, and a speaker to tell when each step has been completed.

After each step, the car stops and the speaker beeps. It emphasizes the proper way to get into a spot. The car also has a realistic driver mode with a gas pedal and a steering wheel using the joysticks on the controller. The car is made with a front drive that turns realistically like a car.
