Abstract: Smart Cities are having lot of challenges and issues to solve while facilitating citizens better place and environment to live. One of such challenges is getting a free parking lot to park the vehicle. In absence of parking rules and regulations or necessary infrastructure, people may park their vehicles at wrong place and or in wrong direction. This can lead to inconvenience to pedestrians, obstacles to moving traffic, traffic jam and similar unwanted problems. This paper has discussed the Software technology and ICT based Smart Parking solution “SmartPark” to avoid such problems. There are various techniques and solutions available for enabling Smart Parking systems, this paper has briefly covered details of some of such solutions as well as proposed the smart parking system based on image processing, Mobile App and Client Server technologies.
