Abstract: With the increase of economical behavior and the upgrade of living standard of people, the ratio of people in India who own cars and motorcycles have recently increased giving a boost to Metropolitan Traffic. Therefore, Now a days parking issues will be a big challenge to facilitate traffic network and ensure the urban life quality. Searching for parking space in most metropolitan area’s, especially during the rush hours, is difficult for the drivers. The difficulty arises from not knowing where the available spaces may be at that time or not ; even if known, many vehicles like two wheeler and four wheeler may pursue very limited parking spaces to cause serious traffic congestion. In this paper, we design and implement a prototype of Andriod Base Smart Parking System based on Reservation that allows drivers to effectively find the car parking in particular area and reserve the vacant parking spaces. By periodically learning the parking status from the host parking database management in parking lot, the reservation service is affected by the change of physical parking status. The drivers are allow to access this cyber-physical system with their personal communication device. Furthermore, we study state-of-the-art parking policies in the smart parking systems and compare their performance. The experiment results show that the proposed reservation-based parking policy has the potential to simplify the operations of parking systems, as well as traffic congestion caused by parking searching.
