This thesis discusses the different components required to build and design a prototype for the Intelligent Parking Management (IPM) infrastructure. Different aspects of the hardware and software components used to build the prototype is also discussed in the thesis along with discussion of business and marketing strategies for the viability of the solution for commercial use. A prototype solution was built using hardware and software components. The prototype was tested for real-time parking meter availability information for both general web customers and smart device users such as PDA with wireless access and Smart Phone mobile devices using 3G technologies. The tests were conducted in a controlled environment with simulation data for real parking meters. The IPM prototype solution infrastructure built was able to provide real-time parking information. The information was accessible via the Internet through standard browsers and 3G enable Smart Phones. The integration between the hardware and software components and the IPM infrastructure design prototype was enabled through various technologies such as Microsoft .NET platform, Microsoft SQL Server 2000, Microsoft Mobile Internet toolkit, DTS, ASP.NET and ADO.NET. The thesis discusses these technologies and their interconnectivity within the IPM infrastructure.
