With the increase in number of people using vehicles for transportation since last decade, traffic congestion is a major problem that requires to be solved effectively. Smart car park system is considered as one of the strategic solutions to this problem, which involves use of sensors to collect data. This paper proposes a novel low-cost smart car monitoring system to detect number of incoming and outgoing cars in and/or out of the car park using pressure sensors. This system also provides the data for the number of spaces available in the car park. Additionally, the paper also demonstrates the algorithm used to process the data obtained by the sensors to use it as a useful information.
