Autonomous Vehicle Sunshade
This paper shows how mechatronics engineering concept is applied in real life applications. The idea is to construct
an automatic device on a vehicle to prevent the heat penetration in the vehicle interior caused by the sunlight. This
construction requires a combination of mechanical design, electronic design, control system design, and computer science
design. This paper presents a novel design which is a fully autonomous sunshade to cover the car automatically when it is
parked outside. The system will prevent any vehicle from getting affected by heat produced by the solar energy. Solid works
design and simulation has been done to analyze the required power by the system. Finally, a prototype has been built and the
feasibility has been checked.
