A Vision of the Future Area swept out = π(½) 2 = π/4

3
Turning round in π/8

6
What is the least possible area?

7
Turning round in ε Idea 1 The area swept out in parallel parking can be made arbitrarily small Besicovitch’s Solution

8
Turning round in ε Idea 2

9
Turning round in ε Divide base into 2 m equal segments (here m = 3)

10
Turning round in ε Divide base into 2 m equal segments (here m = 3)

11
Turning round in ε Divide height into m + 2 equal bands

12
Turning round in ε

14
area of shape has been reduced by a factor of 2/(m+2) By choosing m large enough we can make this arbitrarily small

15
Conclusion the area of the spikagon can be made arbitrarily small (by choosing m large enough) the area of the 2 m parallel parks can be made arbitrarily small (by driving far enough) the total area needed to turn our needle car round can therefore be made arbitrarily small
