In the development of traffic management systems,
an intelligent parking system was created to reduce
the cost of hiring people and for optimal use of
resources for car-park owners. Currently, the
common method of finding a parking space is
manual where the driver usually finds a space inthe
street through luck and experience. This process
takes time and effort and may lead to the worst case
of failing to find any parking space if the driver is
driving in capacity with high vehicle density. The
alternative is to find a pre-defined car park with high
The base paper implements a system prototype with
wireless access in an open-source physical computing
platform based on Arduino with RFID technology
using a smart phone that provides the
communication and user interface for both the
control system and the vehicles to verify the
feasibility of finding free parking space using
internet and cloud technology.
An embedded system is a special purpose computer
system that is designed to perform very small sets of
designated activities. Embedded systems date back as
early as the late 1960s where they used to control
electromechanical telephone switches. The first
recognizable embedded system was the Apollo
Guidance Computer developed by Charles Draper and
his team. Later they found their way into the military,
medical sciences and the aerospace and automobile

Today they are widely used to serve various purposes
 Network equipment such as firewall, router,
switch, and so on.
 Consumer equipment such as MP3 players,
cell phones, PDAs, digital cameras,
camcorders, home entertainment systems and
so on.
 Household appliances such as microwaves,
washing machines, televisions and so on.
 Mission-critical systems such as satellites and
flight control.
The key factors that differentiate an embedded system
from a desktop computer:
 They are cost sensitive.
 Most embedded systems have real time
 There are multitudes of CPU architectures
such as ARM, MIPS, PowerPC that are used
in embedded systems. Application-specific
processors are employed in embedded
 Embedded Systems have and require very few
resources in terms of ROM or other I/O
devices as compared to a desktop computer.
In the existing system the Lab monitoring system is
design and controlled by using RF technology which
can monitor and control the system inside the lab only
in places where network availability is more. They are
bit more costly because cost of components is
increased. Not so easy to implement as you have to

take great care of noise, Because of antennas it is
The proposed method is used to overcome the
drawbacks present in existing method. Here we are
using ARM Intelligent Monitoring Center which uses
Samsung's processor as its main controller. The
environmental conditions present inside the lab can be
monitored using sensors like temperature, gas and
LDR. All the sensors are connected to sensor board.
From the sensor board we are sending monitored
values to control room (ARM board) through RS232
serial cable. The serial cable is connected to one of
UART port of ARM board. Whenever a person is
entered inside the lab, the person’s image can be
captured by camera and send it to controller.
The controller transmits the data to remote PC through
Ethernet by using FTP. FTP is a protocol through
which users can upload files from their systems to
server. Once data is placed at server we can view the
data at remote PC (with internet) on web page with
unique IP address. We can view continuous streaming
of video as well as senor’s data.
Existing System-The base paper uses RFID
Technology to identify free space. In this system every
driver has to carry their RFID tag which will be read at
entrance and exit. In case driver forgets his card, his
car will not be able to enter the parking lots. If such a
car is allowed to park then other users who are looking
for free space online will get wrong information about
the free space.
Proposed System-We are proposing to use IR sensors
at every parking space to find its status (FREE /
OCCUPIED). In such a system there is no need for
user to carry any card and hence no misleading
information to other drivers.
Hardware Description
ARM11, Arduino, IR Sensor, ZIGBEE
Software Description
OS: Embedded Linux, Language: C/ C++, IDE: Qt
Block Diagram
If we want to control the devices based on sensor’s
information we can control through web page from
remote location using HTTP protocol. HTTP protocol
continuously requests the server for control (turn on or
turn off) the devices. In this way we can monitor and
control the devices through remote PC.
Aim-The main aim of this project is todesign a smart
parking system with efficient devices including
raspberrypi, Arduino microcontrollers, Zigbee
modules and relay boards.
Implementation-This project is implemented ARM11
Raspberry pi and Arduino developed boards interfaced
with IR Sensors, ZIGBEE.

In this project, we are giving the complete description
on the proposed system architecture. Here we are using
Page 294
Raspberry Pi board as our platform. It has an ARM-11
SOC with integrated peripherals like USB, Ethernet
and serial etc. On this board we are installing Linux
operating system with necessary drivers for all
peripheral devices and user level software stack which
includes a light weight GUI based on XServer, V4L2
API for interacting with video devices like cameras,
TCP/IP stack to communicate with network devices
and some standard system libraries for system level
general IO operations. The Raspberry Pi board
equipped with the above software stack is connected to
the outside network and a camera is connected to the
Raspberry Pi through USB bus.
The architecture of the web server has the following
In the lower level the web server has the physical
hosting interfaces used for storing and maintaining the
data related to the server.
Above the Physical hosting interface the server has
HTTP server software and other web server
components for bypass the direct interaction with the
physical interaction with the lower levels.
The final layer has the tools and services for
interacting with the video streams which includes the
Image codec and storing interfaces, connection
managers and session control interfaces etc.
When the device starts booting from flash, it first load
the Linux to the device and initialize all the drivers and
the core kernel. After initialization of the kernel it first
check weather all the devices are working properly or
not. After that it loads the file system and start the
startup scripts for running necessary processes and
daemons. Finally it starts the main application.
Circuit Diagram and its overall operation:
The Interface for the user has the following things.
 A label for displaying the image which is
coming from the image.
 Text-boxes for showing the sensor values.
The board continuously reads data from the camera
and at the same time it reads the data from the sensors.
The scheduler is monitoring the process dedicated for
camera reading and sensor reading. The camera read
image and sensor values with scheduler information
will send to the web server. There the user in front of
the web server will monitor the priorities and the
sensor and camera data. Whenever the user wants to
change the priorities of the processes then using the
web interface he can change the priorities. Whenever
change is occurred then the web server sends the
modified signals to board. Whenever the board got the
modification, it will send the scheduler to change the
When our application starts running it first check all
the devices and resources which it needs are available
or not. After that it checks the connection with the
devices and gives control to the user.

technology the project has been successfully
Future Scope
The cost of ARM11 is more that’s why in future we
can implement this system using ARM CORTEX A8,
Beagle bone etc as well as updated processors with
high frequencies will work fine.As the storage space is
also less in future we can also record these live
streaming data by connecting external memory
storage.We can complete our project using wireless
technology.In future we can provide more security to
data by using encryption, decryption techniques.
