Keywords: parking system, WiFi positioning, Bluetooth control, dedicated app, automatic identification

Nowadays, modern parking systems are developing towards automatic vehicle identification. Since the applications of mobile WiFi and Bluetooth signals are very popular and mature, in this paper, we propose an intelligent parking management system based on the technologies of WiFi positioning and Bluetooth control to manage vehicles entering or exiting a parking lot. Only a dedicated app for the parking lot needs to be installed on a user’s mobile phone. When the user is driving near the parking lot, the mobile phone can send the vehicle ID via a Bluetooth signal after WiFi positioning to communicate with the Bluetooth sensor module of the roadside unit (RSU) of the parking lot. Then the RSU end can automatically identify the vehicle. Owing to its convenience, practicability, and low cost, such a parking system using Bluetooth identification based on WiFi positioning is worth popularizing.
