Intelligent Parking lvlanagement System technology that enables efficient use parking will be increasingly important as a growing population placcs ever-growing demands on existing transportation infrastructure. While thc problems of parking shortages are well recognized, the cost of providing additional capacity is frequently prohibitive. Intelligent Parking Management System may provide a sensible means to effectively increase parking capacity, while simultancously reducing demand by enabling parking service operators to charge market rates depending on time of day. The potential benefits of Intelligent Parking Management System are it can improve security for both car park operators and car park users, flexible acccss control to easily accommodate visitors and delivery vehicles, improve traffic flow during peak periods and others. The Intelligent Parking Management system using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and hotspot technology is the advanced parking technologies to manage existing parking spaces at a shopping complex to increase effective capacity and transit access. Smart parking systems implemented worldwide have been found to reduce delays and improve convenience of parking (Shahl:cn, 2003). The car plate scanning implement also can reduce vehicle stolen problem and increase the security of parking area more competently. Although this is a new technology in Malaysia, the RFID application is world wide accepted by other country. The research method is a primary data which is gathered through a literature review and on line web on RFID, hotspot and car plate scanning mcthod. Through this research, the writer found that passive RFID tags is more cost effective than active tags. It also the most preferable tag by other rescareher. Although there are some obstacles to implement RFID and hotspot technology, during investigation, the writer found that there are four solutions can be put into practice: implement reference tag to amplify the passive tag signal to have greater length of coverage utilize hybrid RFID tag design that is protocol-compatiblc with existing Institutt: of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.11 or Bluetooth standards as well as existing Radio Frequency (RF)-tag standards, the arrangement of antcnna and RFID tag and use RFID reader with Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) 802.11 intcrfacc to detect RFID tag. Finally, the proposed network architecture for the Intelligent Parking Management System is designed.
