In earlier methods of parking, the time taken is 2 minutes (approx), the driver needs to be more alert while parking in order to avoid hitting of the car during the reverse motion. Therefore, to avoid these inconveniences, a concept of parallel parking is made, where the total time will be 50 to 60 seconds. This parking can be done using an additional wheel (FIFTH WHEEL). A pneumatic cylinder and solenoid valve set up is used to control fifth wheel to land and lift. A DC motor enables the forward and reverse motion for the fifth wheel. A digital display is used to indicate the status of the wheel for the driver reference. It also helps to know malfunctions during landing or lifting of the wheel. This concept is mainly used for four-wheeler vehicles. This setup makes the vehicle to turn parallel in a significant angle with reference to the front axle within a short period. The model enables the driver to park the vehicle between two vehicles, where the space is limited.
