A smart parking system based on the Internet of Things (IoT) can assist users in locating parking spaces in crowded regions by offering real-time availability updates online. This technology streamlines the car parking procedure, encompassing the entire process from vehicle entry to payment and subsequent leave. The system utilises NodeMCU, a set of five IR sensors, and a pair of servo motors to accurately detect the presence of cars and determine the availability of parking slots. Two infrared sensors are used to detect cars at the entry and exit gates, while three sensors are employed to detect the availability of parking slots. Servo motors operate gates by responding to sensor readings to initiate opening and closing actions. The data is made available on the Adafruit IO platform, enabling worldwide monitoring. The system utilises a total of five infrared sensors and two servo motors that are linked to the NodeMCU. The NodeMCU is responsible for overseeing the entire operation and transmitting data regarding parking availability and time to Adafruit IO.
