Design of NarrowBand-IoT Oriented Wireless Sensor Network in Urban Smart Parking

Wei Zhai


With the rapid growth of economy, the process of urbanization is picking up speed. The ensuing fast increase in the number of motor vehicles has aggravated the contradiction between the growing parking demand and the limited parking space in urban areas, which impedes the sustainable development of urban traffic. The traditional parking lot, featured by low efficiency and poor automation, fails to satisfy the soaring parking demand. To improve the traffic management across the city, it is necessary to develop an integrated management platform for urban parking lots. In view of the unique advantage of NarrowBand-Internet of Things (NB-IoT), this paper proposes an urban smart parking management platform based on the NB-IoT and wireless sensor network (WSN), aiming to unlock the full potential of urban parking resources. After briefly introducing the NB-IOT wireless communication and license plate recognition (LPR), the author explained the overall architecture and the image processing algorithm of the NB-IoT oriented urban smart parking plan. Then, the proposed plan was contrasted with traditional wireless communication technology. The results prove that the proposed plan outperformed its traditional counterpart. This research will give a great impetus to the development of the IoT although NB-IoT is still in its nascence
