The system is built to maximize energy efficiency and is very helpful if we want to count the number of cars in the parking lots. This is done by simply incrementing the counter. To accomplish this, the system pairs of ultrasonic sensors, which saves a significant amount of energy. Each pair consists of two sensor pairs that are spaced apart in the opposite direction by a specific amount. The receiver receives the input and feeds it to an 8051 microcontroller. The transmitter is used to send light directly to the receiver. When a car approaches the area where the system is installed, the Ultrasonic sensor module detects it and sends the information to the microcontroller. The microcontroller process this input received. The system is also counting the number of cars that are present at this time and incrementing a counter with each arrival; the count is shown on a 7-segment display. If parking garages are not available, then indicate this on an LED display along with whether or not the vacant space is available. Since the counter should be situated so that only one car can pass at a time, the system also uses Arduino to increase the Bluetooth gate's open position over time.
