The Internet of Things(IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. The IoT allows objects to be sensed or controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration of the physical world into computerbased systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit in addition to reduced human intervention. In urban areas, fuel wastage, carbon emission, traffic congestion and air pollution are mainly caused by illegally idling cars or by car drivers trying to find a parking spot. Therefore, finding available parking spots should be a task of utmost importance in daily life. This system proposes an easy but efficient solution of providing motorists with real time information about the availability of vacant spots in parking spaces with the help of a smart-phone application. Drivers can see the available parking spots in real time on a map, and also navigate to the nearest available parking spots using the mobile application. An app which allows drivers to book the parking lot will reduce the time and energy required to find one. This system provides a pathway for making an efficient, lowcost, smart, real-time system. This system also understands the importance of keeping the users data safe as well as protecting the system from any intrusions in a smart parking project and thus takes the required measures to ensure security, privacy, confidentiality and integrity of the users as well as the system.
