The increasing number of motorized vehicles in this country creates a high demand of parking space in Malaysia. The car drivers have to spend more time to find out a vacant space especially on weekend and public holidays.Therefore, ‘Zigbee Protocol for Systematic Parking System’ is developed to solve parking lots congestion. It is a new approach of parking system using Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technology equipped with Light Dependent Resistor(LDR) sensor. Zigbee is based on IEEE 802.15.4 standard for WSN that is being used in many commercial research applications today where it becomes an attractive solution for low power and low cost applications. Once the LDR sensor detects the new incoming car, the data will be sent to a central database which is Zigbee protocol for verification. Hardware implementation of Zigbee RF Vehicle tags is carried out using XBee Starter Kit DOM Zigbee module. All the information will be displayed using Graphical User interface, Visual Basic 6.Thus, the parking congestion problems can be automatically reduced.
