Real-time parking occupancy information is critical for a parking management system to facilitate drivers to park more efficiently. Recent advances in connected and automated vehicle technologies enable sensor-equipped cars (probe cars) to detect and broadcast available parking spaces when driving through parking lots. In this paper, we evaluate the impact(More)
Real-time parking occupancy information is valuable for guiding drivers’ searching for parking spaces. However, in previous practice, data acquisition requires costly infrastructure upgrades especially including installing cameras or sensors on site. In this paper, we proposed a Sensor-based Intelligent Parking System (SIPS) which is able to detect free(More)
