The industrialization of the world, increase in population, slow paced city development and mismanagement of the available parking space has resulted in parking related problems. There is a dire need for a secure, intelligent, efficient and reliable system which can be used for searching the unoccupied parking facility, guidance towards the parking facility, negotiation of the parking fee, along with the proper management of the parking facility. Intelligent Parking Service is a part of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). This paper reviews different Intelligent Parking Services used for parking guidance, parking facility management and gives an insight into the economic analysis of such projects. The discussed systems will be able to reduce the problems which are arising due to unavailability of a reliable, efficient and modern parking system, while the economic analysis technique will help in analyzing the projects' feasibility.

Keywords: Intelligent Transportation Systems, Fuzzy Logic, Wireless Networks.



La industrialización del mundo, el aumento de población, el desarrollo de la ciudad de ritmo lento y la mala gestión del espacio de aparcamiento disponible ha dado lugar a problemas relacionados con el aparcamiento. Hay una gran necesidad de un sistema seguro, inteligente, eficiente y confiable que se puede utilizar para buscar el aparcamiento desocupada, la orientación hacia el aparcamiento, la negociación de la tarifa de aparcamiento, así como la correcta gestión de las instalaciones de aparcamiento. Servicio de Estacionamiento Inteligente es una parte de los Sistemas Inteligentes de Transporte (ITS). Este artículo revisa los diferentes Servicios de estacionamiento inteligentes utilizados para la guía, Aparcamiento gestión de instalaciones y da una idea del análisis económico de este tipo de proyectos. Los sistemas descritos podrán reducir los problemas que están surgiendo debido a la falta de un sistema de aparcamiento fiable, eficiente y moderna, mientras que la técnica de análisis económico nos ayudará en el análisis de viabilidad de los proyectos.
