In the study, Harry and his team conduct research on methods of finding parking for motor vehicles by utilizing a system based IOT (Internet of Things). Use of the system is intended to reduce the search time of congestion in the parking area. This system is integrated with a smartphone or laptop to provide information to the driver to find an empty parking area nearby.
