Project SummaryThis project tasks the team with designing an active monitoring system capable of tracking the available parking spaces of one lot at RIT. This system will employ sensors at the entrances/exits of a parking area to determine occupancy. The system will be a pilot program for future installments around RIT and will begin by monitoring Lot N.
This monitoring system will be responsible for tracking the overall lot occupancy and display a signal light to the commuters that indicates the availability of parking in that lot. In addition, it is desired that this system also be able to simply act as a counter, thus making it easy for parking services at RIT to employ the system as a traffic data acquisition tool. The system must be able to run off the grid and be field-programmable for lot occupancy or data logging. The interface for the programming must allow the user to input the lot size, choose to monitor or simply count, and contain a count reset option.
