Here is Jeff’s second Arduino project he shared on the weekly show-and-tell

It’s me…Silent Jeff with “The Parking Spotter” Uses a 4 pin ultrasonic sensor. I had to figure out how to modify the code. I’m learning electronics on my own with TONS of help from the web. I made a Perfboard Arduino and wired it up. This stuff is fun!!!


“D is for Diode” – Circuit Playground Episode 4 is out now! CLICK HERE TO WATCH!

Have an amazing project to share? Join the SHOW-AND-TELL every Wednesday night at 7:30pm ET on Google+ Hangouts.

Join us every Wednesday night at 8pm ET for Ask an Engineer!

  1. Hello Jeff
    Are you thinking of doing a step by step tutorial?
    I’m really new to arduino and electronics and it would be very welcomed :)

    I really need one of those because i only have 20cm space from the wall. These damn european parking garages are a pain to get your can in it.

    Best Regards

  2. Hi Alpha,
    I just posted this Instructable today!

    Copy & paste, guess. If you have questions, I’ll do my best to answer them.

    Thanks,
