my garage door is pretty narrow, about 10 cm (4") on each side of my car's rear mirrors. So every time I drive to garage, I need to go very slowly because I am afraid I might not be lined up correctly.
I am thinking about using Arduino and some sensors to help me. Output is pretty simple, just two leds, one for each side, showing me if I should turn little right or left to have perfect lineup to center. This I can handle with no problem
What I am asking for is idea how to measure the alignment of my car. I know how to use ultrasonic sensors for measuring distance. But I am not sure they are suitable for this project, because I want preferably to put arduino and sensors in my garage, not in my car.
Any idea how to work this out ?
