A Distributed Intelligent Parking Service Environment Based on Agent Technologies

In order to solve the parking problems in the metropolises and provide the drivers a better parking service, a new approach integrating in-Vehicle Information Communication Systems (VICS), Global Positioning System (GPS), geographic information systems (GIS), wireless communication and mobile computing with FIPA compliant agent system for constructing distributed intelligent parking service environment composed of parks, cars and parking information service center and traffic management center is proposed. The environment is implemented based on an extended FIPA architecture through using mobile agent, message queue, agent container and agent execution environment, making full use of the interoperability of FIPA standards and the flexibility of mobile agent. The whole service environment can automatically execute park searching, parking price negotiation, parking space booking and parking routes negotiation and guidance using the intelligence, adaptability and collaboration of agents.
