"Cars are necessary in people lives, and they must be protected from various weather factors such as heat, rain, and sand storms. However, when people drive to places and want to park, they always seek for shaded parking lots to prevent heat and sunlight, or search for multi floored parking. Unfortunately, not all the places people go to have these features, they only have parking yards with no shades. By parking vehicles in such places will be more vulnerable to various weather conditions, which will affect cars negatively. As a result, car paint, interior components and decoration will be damaged, and this will make people pay more money to fix the damages occurred due to unshaded parking lots. Through the proposed project, we seek to provide a portable smart car shade that provides the required protection of the car that are known and available in the rest of the 4 umbrellas. Since it is a portable car shade, this means that it will be attached on the car when parking at unshaded parking lots. Nevertheless, what distinguishes this car umbrella is that it has two ways of usage, by phone application and by remote controller. The phone application is used to turn on and off the umbrella, and it has a security system consists of an alarm, and sensors. This system will notify the user in case of theft, or if he or she forgot to close and detach the shade. Moving on the sensors, which will monitor the weather while the car, is parked and measures the temperature on the surface of vehicles. Moreover, through these sensors the car shade will be controlled automatically when opening and closing. Another feature is the car shade has two ways of power, by PV cells attached on the shade that will be used as a backup power system, and traditional charging battery."
