This project uses the DragonBoard™ 410c from Arrow Electronics to design a smart parking lot, which can assign the closest parking space available to drivers. In this example, automation is achieved by the implementation of a booth at the entrance and the exit. The booth at the entrance is designed to dispense an RFID tag which can track whether or not the user has occupied the assigned spot. It can also detect empty spots and exceptions where cars have been parked on incorrect spots to adjust the parking assignments accordingly.

One of the main problems with parking lots is finding a parking space in a quick and effective way. One reason for this is the lack of organization that exists in many parking lots, and driving around in circles is not an effective way to find the best parking spot.
