iParking – Real-Time Parking Space Monitor and Guiding System with Cloud Service
By the popularization of cars, average number of vehicles owned by one person grows with passing days. However, the number of parking areas is out of proportion. In order to satisfy the requirements of parking space and reduce illegal parking, we propose iParking, a real-time parking space monitoring and guiding system, in this paper. We lay emphasis on roadside parking. The system determines and records empty parking spaces through cloud computing, wireless technology between vehicles, and image analysis. It tells you the nearest location of empty parking space while drivers have requests. We expect the system to cause attention to more people and government while it solves relative problems about parking space.
