Abstract

This project developed an automobile object detection system with after-market installation features. A sensor array installed on the front and back bumpers of a vehicle will wirelessly transmit readings to a display inside of the vehicle. The project was made with cars and SUVs in mind, but can be used for other applications such as remote robotics and boating. The display inside of the vehicle was designed to warn the driver without being a distraction. The device includes ultrasonic ranging, Zigbee wireless, rechargeable switching supply, embedded controller and display subsystems.
