Implementing this system will increase parking utilization.
The system does this by providing more efficient and effective parking enforcement.
Over the years, car parking systems and the accompanying technologies have increased and diversified.
Car parking systems have been around almost since the time cars were invented.
The major aim of this project was to develop an automated system that can manage parking in Makerere University.
Currently, parking at Makerere University has not been given a lot of serious thought and planning.In any area where there is a significant amount of traffic, there are car parking systems.Car Parking systems were developed in the early 20th century in response to the need for storage space for vehicles.This study is aimed at analysing a car parking management system.This system allocates available parking space to a given driver to park their vehicle, renews the availability of the parking space when the car leaves and computes the charges due.Since most of the cars at Massey University are in one parking area, video cameras could be used efficiently to detect many of them.This Thesis presents how a system could be made that would detect the availability of car parks and tell a driver where the available car parks are.First an excel spreadsheet with test data was used to test, displaying where empty and full car parks are.Then a program that created random data was used to quickly see how the display would look in different conditions.An image processing technique is used to implement an intelligent car parking management system at the Massey University car park.In this project a camera is used as a sensor to take photos to show the occupancy of car parks.
