DESIGN OF AN AUTOMATIC TAXI PARKING SYSTEM USING RASPBERRY PI 3

Despite the scattered taxi stages around Kampala city, taxis are supposed to only stage or park in the main taxi park to reduce the congestion. However, other congestion factors come into play like improper parking methodologies which call for a lot of human labor, poor or no slot monitoring system, and drunk driving which even leads to accidents in and out the taxi parking yards.

Therefore, a system has been implemented to reduce the congestion in Kampala city which normally begins from the taxi parks. The system uses RFID technology to only grant access to the known taxi drivers that are stored in the database, it also includes empty slot detection and automatic parking mechanism which will help in the reduction of the congestion inside the taxi parking yards.

Alcohol detectors are also installed on the exit gate to only allow sober taxi drivers to drive passengers out which is anticipated to reduce accidents caused by drunk drivers on the roads. The system is controlled by raspberry pi 3 B+ interfaced with the Arduino technology for precision.
