Retrofit Parking Sensor

The idea of this project is to create a device which can be used to add distance sensing to cars or other vehicles such as trailers which don’t have them. The device can be attached to the back of a car using magnets and has a silicone exterior on the back side in order to protect the car’s paint. It uses two distance sensors to detect whether or not a warning sound needs to be played. Red, yellow, and green LEDs are also used to show whether or not it is safe to continue reversing the vehicle. The device needs an ON/OFF switch. The user willl call the module that houses the sensor and sends its data the ‘sender’ and the one that houses the speaker and receives the data the ‘receiver’.
