With the increase in world population and vehicle production, parking spaces and facilities are required. As the numbers of vehicles on the road are increasing day by day, parking problems which are increasing at an alarming rate in every major city cause driver’s frustration, traffic congestion and time wasting, especially during the peak business hours. Lot of researches was being done all over the world to implement better parking management system which reduces parking problems. SPARK (Smart Parking) is parking garage system that utilizes various technologies to implement best parking system. The proposed system is aimed to inform drivers about the number of available parking spaces without any parking difficulties. This system is designed for two- level parking slots with twenty six parking spaces and one aisle on each floor. The condition of parking slots is detected by IR sensors and is reported periodically to main controller via floor controllers and self controllers. PIC 18F4550 is chosen to be used as controllers because it is suitable for the proposed system. Each floor contains LCD display which will show available parking spaces of that floor. LCD display at the entrance gate will show overall available parking slots of two floors. In this paper, a new parking system called Smart Parking system is proposed to help drivers getting the real-time parking information and to find vacant spaces in a car park in a shorter time. This kind of system minimizes not only traffic congestion problems but also staff requirements to control the traffic in the car park.
