iPark: A Universal Solution for Vehicle Parking
Urbanization and drastic increase of vehicle usage has brought up a considerable problem in vehicle parking. Lack of efficient infrastructure facilities to manage increasing demand with available space and inability to provide intelligent, standard, and interoperable parking solutions are some of the main reasons to cause the above problem. Therefore, in this paper we introduced a novel parking solution called iPark which could solve almost all the existing issues using rich radio frequency chip design. iPark could realize the potential benefits in intelligent transportation systems (ITS) and allows real time, efficient, effective and hassle free parking. It also enables dynamic parking management, provides information on idling lots, allow prior reservations, provide navigation support towards idling or reserved lot, automate collecting of charges and enforce rules and regulations on illegal parking. Moreover, unlike other solutions, iPark works for both free entrance and controlled entrance parking lots by reducing the unnecessary burdens.
