Abstract: This paper reveals a work-in progress to capitalize on private land properties for parking, in order to relieve stress on public agencies, create new sources ofrevenue, and enlist new entities in the intermediary market. These intermediaries, labelled as Parking Service Providers (or PSPs)play a broker role through advertising parking lots on a shared cloud platform. To streamline these business collaborations andrelated processes, physical parking lots are augmented with Internet connectivity allowing cloud-provided applications tocongregate these lots into a larger inventory. The Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm expands the scope of cloud-based intelligentcar parking services in smart cities, with novel applications that better regulate car-parking related traffic. This paper presents awork-in-progress agenda that contributes to new business solutions and state-of-the-art research impacts.
