SmartParking: A Secure and Intelligent Parking System

Parking is costly and limited in most major cities in the world. Innovative parking systems for meeting near-term parking demand are needed. This paper proposes a novel, secure, and intelligent parking system (SmartParking) based on a secured wireless network and sensor communication. From a users' point of view, SmartParking is a secure and intelligent parking service, the parking reservation is safe and privacy is preserved, and the parking navigation is convenient and efficient. The whole parking process will be a non-stop service. From management's point of view, SmartParking is an intelligent parking system, the parking process can be modeled as a birth-death stochastic process, and prediction of revenues can be made. Based on the prediction, new business promotion can be made (e.g., sale pricing and new parking fees). In SmartParking, new promotions can be published through wireless networks. The paper addresses hardware/software architecture, implementations, and analytical models and results. Evaluation of the proposed system demonstrates its efficiency.
