In this project, we will build a prototype for smart parking system which is an application of IOT. The idea behind this is, in many towns and cities there is a problem to park the vehicles. Due to heavy traffic and usage of vehicles space is not enough to park them in every place. There is a need for such a system where all parking locations available nearby, vacancy position and information through an application. So, based on these difficulties in parking in towns and cities we came with an idea where we use smart parking system in and around the cities. This smart parking system will alert the vehicle users about the location of the parking where the free area available, the distance from current location and the status of vacancy. So, that they can go and park at the respective location. With this idea the use of man power and roaming of the vehicles for parking can be reduced. By using the cloud based smart parking system we can see the number of slots empty in the parking so, that we can go there and parking vehicles in according to the allocated slots.
