Due to the proliferation in the number of vehicles on the road, traffic problems are bound to exist. This is due to the fact that the current transportation infrastructure and car parking facility developed are unable to cope with the influx of vehicles on the road. In India, the situation are made worse by the fact that the roads are significantly narrower compared to the west. Therefore problems such as traffic congestion and insufficient parking space inevitably crops up. In his paper we describe an Intelligent Car Parking System, which identifies the available spaces for parking using sensors, parks the cars in an identified empty space and gets the car back from its parked space without the help of any human personnel. A Human Machine Interface (HMI) helps in entering a unique identification number while entry of any car which helps in searching for the space where the car is parked while exit. An Indraconrol L10 PLC controls the actions of the parking system. The PLC is used to sequence the placing and fetching of the car via DC motors. We have implemented a prototype of the system. The system evaluation demonstrates the effectiveness of our design and implementation of car parking system.
