The parking problem in India is getting worse by the day. It is fast turning into a major urban crisis, especially in metro cities. This is a critical  issue that needs immediate attention from  urban designers and managers, as well as citizens.  These parking problems  not only affect the movement of vehicles on the streets, but also leads to higher pollution levels. It has an adverse impact on the safety of vehicles and traffic off the streets. Parking in cities is a daily struggle and a perpetual challenge for vehicle  owners. There are often long queues at the car parking lots.

Rising cases of theft and vandalism are a growing concern in the parking areas while parking lot owners are finding it difficult to manage parking lots due to  rising operating costs. Meanwhile, there is a rise in demand for Smart Parking Solutions. Nowadays, parking lot operators are striving to make the most economical use of their lots. Drivers have difficulty finding a free space conveniently in enormous parking lots. Even car park operators often complain about the low utilization of spaces. 

Challenges

In the parking lots, entrances and exits are always a top concern, especially when there are time requirements and labour costs involved. Intelligent vehicle authentication is highly required for enhanced security and smooth passage experience, such as alarms for unauthorized vehicles, ANPR detection, etc.

Another common need is record keeping.  In most cases, vehicle records  in a parking lot often face challenges due to mismanagement, inefficiency or tempering.   It is important to quickly locate vehicles of interest to provide evidence and resolve disputes effectively. There are different  types of parking lots in metro cities to offer parking solutions to vehicle owners, but each one has unique challenges that need to be addressed.
