In this study, an algorithm presents a solution to 4-wheel-car parking. This algorithm is suitable for parallel parking between two objects or two cars. Firstly the system verifies whether enough space. After finding a valid parking space, system makes the suitable movements for a perfect parking. This parking operation is tested in a simulation environment using MatLab-Simulink.
