Cities noticed that their drivers had real problems to find a parking space easily, the difficulty roots from not knowing where the parking spaces are available at the given time. In this paper we will design an automatic smart parking architecture using multi-agent and expert systems which are the main domains of artificial intelligence. AI is accomplished by studying how human brain thinks and how humans learn, decide, and work while trying to solve a problem, and then using the outcomes of this study as a basis of developing intelligent software and systems. Implementing this scalable and low cost car parking framework will provides a lot of services for the driver: driver guidance, automatic payment, parking lot retrieval, Gate management, security and low cost of implementation.
