The remaining papers propose smart parking systems that use image processing, Android applications, RFID technology, and cloud-based solutions.
In terms of the literature survey, papers , , , , and  provide a comprehensive overview of smart parking systems, their components, and their advantages and limitations. They also discuss the challenges faced in implementing smart parking systems and propose some solutions.
However, there are still gaps in the research, such as the lack of focus on the user interface and user experience, the need for more efficient and accurate parking detection methods, and the need for more sustainable and eco-friendly parking solutions. Our research paper focuses on addressing some of these gaps by proposing a smart parking system that uses a visually appealing user interface and machine learning algorithms for accurate parking detection. We also aim to make our solution more eco-friendly by using solar-powered sensors and exploring the possibility of integrating electric vehicle charging stations into the parking system.
Our smart parking registration system is built using the MERN (MongoDB, Express.js, React.js, and Node.js) stack. The system is designed to allow users to register their vehicles for parking using a visual interface, similar to the seat registration system used in online ticket booking platforms.
The frontend of the system is built using React.js. The user interface comprises of a seat map that allows users to select a parking spot for their vehicle. The seat map is implemented as a grid of buttons, with each button representing a parking spot. The grid is generated dynamically based on the number of parking spots available. Users can select a parking spot by clicking on a button. Selected spots are highlighted, and their status is updated to 'booked'.
The backend of the system is built using Node.js and Express.js. The system uses MongoDB as its database. The database contains two collections, 'vehicles' and 'parking'. The 'vehicles' collection stores information about registered vehicles, including their make and model, and license plate number. The 'parking' collection stores information about parking spots, including their status (booked or available) and the start and end times of the parking reservation.
The system uses RESTful APIs to communicate between the frontend and the backend. When a user selects a parking spot, a POST request is sent to the backend to update the 'parking' collection. The backend checks the availability of the parking spot and updates its status to 'booked' if it is available. It then creates a new document in the 'parking' collection with the details of the parking reservation, including the start and end times.
The system also provides an endpoint to retrieve a list of available parking spots. This endpoint is used by the frontend to populate the seat map with the current availability status of parking spots.
In addition to the core functionality of parking registration, the system also provides a feature to block parking spots. This feature is used by the parking management team to block specific parking spots for maintenance or other reasons. When a parking spot is blocked, its status is updated to 'blocked', and it is no longer available for parking reservations.
The system has been designed to be scalable and extensible. Additional features, such as payment integration and parking spot recommendations, can be added easily to the system in the future.
Overall, our smart parking registration system provides an efficient and user-friendly way for users to register their vehicles for parking. The system is scalable and extensible, making it a viable solution for parking management in various settings.
A. Schemas and APIs
We have designed and implemented three main MongoDB schemas for the project: User, Vehicle, and Parking.
The User schema stores information related to user accounts, including the user's name, email, password, and role. The role determines the user's level of access to the application, with only admins having access to certain parts of the system, such as managing parking spaces.
The Vehicle schema stores information related to registered vehicles, including the vehicle's make, model, number plate, and owner. The owner is referenced to the User schema and ensures that only registered users can register their vehicles.
The Parking schema stores information related to booked parking spaces, including the vehicle ID, parking space number, and the start and end times of the booking. We have used MongoDB's ObjectID as the primary key for the Parking schema, ensuring that each booking has a unique ID.
Our project has several APIs for user authentication, vehicle registration, and parking booking. We have used Express.js to handle HTTP requests and responses for each API, making them RESTful. We have also used Passport.js to handle user authentication, ensuring secure and reliable login functionality.
For vehicle registration, we have created an API endpoint that allows registered users to register their vehicles by providing the required details. This endpoint is secured using user authentication to ensure that only registered users can register their vehicles.
For parking booking, we have created an API endpoint that allows registered users to book parking spaces by providing the vehicle ID and the start and end times of the booking. This endpoint is secured using user authentication and ensures that each booking is unique.
B. React Frontend and Seat Visualization
The SeatMap file is one of the most important components of the project. It provides a visual cue for the users to select their parking seats, similar to the seat selection feature in movie ticket booking applications. The SeatMap file is responsible for rendering the parking lot seats, blocking the seats that have already been booked, and selecting the seats that the user wants to book. It uses a combination of React state and CSS classes to achieve this functionality.
Overall, the use of React, Axios, and SeatMap file provides a smooth and efficient user experience for booking parking spots in the smart parking system.
The Smart Parking Registration System developed in this study is a highly efficient and user-friendly system that provides an easy and hassle-free experience to the users. The system utilizes advanced technologies such as React.js, Node.js, Express.js, MongoDB, and Material UI to provide an intuitive and interactive user interface. The SeatMap component of the system allows users to view the available parking slots and select a parking slot according to their preferences. The system also allows users to book parking slots for their vehicles by specifying the start and end times of their parking.
The system was evaluated by a group of users who reported that they found the system to be highly efficient and user-friendly. The users also reported that the system significantly reduced the time and effort required to book a parking slot, and provided an overall better experience as compared to traditional parking booking systems.
V. FUTURE SCOPE
The proposed smart parking registration system presents several avenues for future research and development. One of the potential areas of improvement is to integrate the system with other smart city infrastructure such as traffic management and public transportation systems to create a seamless and integrated experience for the users. Additionally, incorporating machine learning algorithms to predict parking availability and dynamically adjust the pricing for parking spots based on demand can be explored. Another possible area for future research is the implementation of an automated payment system using blockchain technology to enhance the security and transparency of the payment process. Lastly, expanding the system to support parking for electric vehicles and integrating it with the charging infrastructure can be investigated to promote the adoption of sustainable transportation. These developments can enhance the usability, efficiency, and sustainability of the proposed smart parking registration system.
The Smart Parking Registration System developed in this study is a highly efficient and user-friendly solution to the problem of parking space management. The system leverages advanced technologies such as React.js, Node.js, Express.js, MongoDB, and Material UI to provide an intuitive and interactive user interface that simplifies the process of parking space booking for vehicle owners. The system significantly reduces the time and effort required for the same, providing a highly efficient and reliable way to book parking slots. The system\'s potential applications are wide-ranging and can be implemented in various settings such as shopping malls, airports, and public parking spaces.
