How does the parking system work?
The parking system has 4 levels, level 1 for admins and disabled, level 2 for staff and disabled, level 3 for visitors and disabled, level 4 for visitors.. we two gates in each level (the gate is a pair of IR sensor) , one gate for entrance and the other for exit.. moreover we have camera and monitor near the entrance gate of level 1 , the camera detects the type of car that entering the parking according to the color, then in the monitor it will show how many total vacant and occupied parking lots and it will show where should the car park.... for example: i am entering the parking system by a car that has green parking sticker, so the camera will detect that and in the monitor the total number of vacant parking lots will be decreased while the total number of occupied parking lots will be increased as well as showing that i am authorized to park only at level 2 and there is only for example 7 vacant lots for staff in level 2.
The system is :
FPGA ;Nexys 2 spartan 3E,
Camera connected to the FPGA,
And the monitor connected via VGA to the FPGA,
The gates(pairs of IR sensors) in a bread board as illustrated in the abstract.
