The V-tent is a solar panel charging station that powers your car while you’re away. The foldable solar cover remains retracted to indicate parking space availability, and then slowly covers your vehicle when you pay to park in the space, converting sunlight into full batteries while keeping your car shady at the same time. A side panel features an LED light indicating the charging level of the vehicle, much like the battery indicator on a mobile device. The system as envisioned would also allow users to access the charging station’s controls remotely via smartphone.
