Self-Parking Car System

With two SAM DC Motors and LEGO, park your Curious Cars!

You will need: Lego technic set, coloured paper, wood platforms, wooden sticks, hot glue, 1 SAM Button, 2 DC Motors

  1. First, build the SAM's Curious Cars Lego parking system. 3D instructions are available at:

  2. Then, install each SAM DC Motor in the appropriate place to lift and rotate the lever

  3. Once the lift is ready, design your parking ramp using wooden platforms and sticks

  4. Decorate the parking ramp with coloured paper or any other decoration materials you prefer

  5. Then, open the SAM Space app. Drag the SAM Button and the 2 SAM DC Motors to the canvas. Connect the Button to the 'Hold' block and this to the first SAM DC Motor and a 'Toggle' block. Then, connect the Toggle to an 'Inverse' block and a 'Direction' block. This will control the lever to lift and rotate in both directions

  6. Turn on all of the SAM blocks

  7. There you have it - your very own personalised parking system for your Curious Cars!
