This paper presents a novel vehicle ad hoc network (VANET) based on an on-street parking system that exploits the concept of InfoStations (ISs) and context-aware systems to locate and reserve a parking space. All parking zones have an assigned IS that provides wireless coverage to that parking zone. Thus, the parking details are available over dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) via the IS. Vehicles can request and reserve a preferred parking space using wireless capabilities while still moving. Because parking zones are generally distributed according to street (area) names, the architecture in this paper recommends centralised IS, which monitors and controls the geographically intermittent area-wise parking zones.
