IoT based Prototype for Smart Vehicle and Parking Management System


Objective: To formulate and simulate a constructive approach for decent parking space and vehicle safety using Internet of Things as both of them are of paramount importance in current scenario. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Internet of Things plays a vital role where everything is connected with everything. Flex sensors, switch, RFID and other stuff have been used to overcome the problem of vehicle parking. Already there have been early stage studies and has come up with prototype which shall aid user or drivers in finding the available parking space with the help of IOT. Findings: Since ample of related studies have been already done but integrating some new features can certainly pave the way of not only parking management but also in making the vehicle smart. For the purpose of parking facility, we check whether the slot is available, if so then the gate opens else not. Fee is charged on the time basis. Since the automobile industry and ICT industry amalgamate, the smart vehicle is a predominant issue. To make vehicle safe, we aim at fingerprint sensor. The fingerprint of every person is unique. The identification of an authorized user becomes more and more reliable. For the purpose of vehicle safety, we devise a fingerprint-based prototype along with GPS and GSM. The prime focus of the above prototype is to address traffic congestion, vehicle safety, and its current location. We also make sure using sensors integrated inside that the driver is not stoned and both the people sitting on the front row are tied up with seat belt. Applications/Improvements: The best part of this prototype is that it has been developed using RFID and IOT tool such as Arduino UNO, GPS, GSM and vibration motor. It not only enhances communication between the two or more connected devices but also maintains the transparency between them. All these can be achieved at cheaper rates.
