Automating car-parking for Societies/Apartments
Who hasn’t passed through the hassles of parking visitor’s car in your own housing building lot ? On a day-to-day basis, each housing society has visitors and people who have not been allotted a parking space, and they need to park their car on an ad-hoc basis during their visit.
Not every apartment has a dedicated parking attendant or valet to assist or route the visitor to an available parking lot. Also, for each parking to be recorded in a paper registers is cumbersome and prone to human mistakes. Such recording made during time of entry and exit needs to be properly maintained for future references, and especially for any incident investigation by authorities at a later date.
Smartphones, can play a big role in such scenarios. The emergence of cheaper and robust android phones has empowered even the lower strata of society to use technology on a scale never seen before. In the case discussion, an Automated Parking Application in Android phone is fully capable of playing the following role :
- Configure different parking lots in the society.
- Noting the entry time and exit time of a car.
- Taking the snapshot of the car/driver or number plate.
- Verifying the mobile number of driver by sending him a SMS.
- Additionally, billing the car owner on checkout based upon different billing policy.
- Sending a paperless parking ticket to the car driver.
A watchman empowered with an Android Phone running the application can perform the above tasks without intruding the car driver.
