Vehicle Recognition and Information System for Parking Guidance Using Image Processing and Android Application
With an increase of economic behavior and the upgrade of living standard, quantity of personal vehicles are steadily growingbecause of which it become much more harder to find a parking spot in crowded areas or city centers. To tackle this problem, we require an efficient and effective parking which may provide a security for the user’s car as well as save their time. In this paper, we proposed a design of a car parking system based on Android application and image processing. In order to achieve our desired task, we automate the whole system so that the user analyze the parking area over their cell phone using Android App, with it they will find the place where parking is currently available and even the quantity of parking places available, in turn save their time and fuel. They can also book their slot by using the App if it is available. Identification of a car that was booked using an app is done with the help of Cameras placed at the entrance and the exit through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) algorithm.
