Post liberalization, Indian cities are growing at an exponential growth rate. The rapid growth of the towns is giving birth to many socioeconomic problems. With the increase in the number of personal vehicles and shrinking parking spaces, the problem of parking vehicles at wrong parking spaces is steadily increasing which causes home and business establishment owners a lot of discontents, time wastage, and unnecessary chaos. By adopting latest technologies, the parking issue can be addressed more smartly. In this work, we have designed, developed, and tested an IoT-based smart parking solution. We have conducted rigorous testing of our solution in real life under various circumstances and observe that our approach provides a practical solution to the wrong parking issue.
