dc.description.abstractMany cities have significant problems when it comes to traffic management. One of those problems is congestion in the streets and the roads leading to the city. This congestion can get so severe as to cause a complete halt in the movement of the vehicles. This problem has a negative effect on economy as many people waste a long time just sitting idle and also negative on the environment due to pollution from the vehicle exhaust gases. One of the causes of this congestion is the difficulty of drivers finding empty parking slots. As drivers look for spaces to park, they slowdown in the narrow streets and some even stop to let other vehicles reverse from their occupied slots. This effect accumulates over time to cause congestion. The prototype developed here provides information about the occupancy of all parking slots and hence assists the city management to evaluate the utilization of available space, assist drivers in quickly finding empty parking slots as well as assist system designers on the best combination of technologies to use.en_US
