Abstract: Wireless Sensor Networks can be considered as one of the most challenging and emerging technologies empowering the provision of enhanced services to miscellaneous application domains. The objective of this paper is to examine and present an implementation of a real-time parking management system. This system adapts efficiently into a contemporary urban environment, and eventually provides to users the ability to find and navigate easily to a free curb space. The system is comprised of a deployed sensor network based on two collaborative vehicle detection schemes supported by an event-driven processing algorithm and a web based application. The evaluation of the system is performed by conducting a number of experiments in order to select the optimal sensing modality and confirm the feasibility of the proposed application system in actual running conditions. Results demonstrate that the proposed system is capable of effectively detecting overlying automobiles and robustly distinguishing false positive indications.


Keywords: Wireless sensor network, Vehicle detection, Magnetic sensor, Passive infrared sensor, Web based user interface
