Main Article Content

Maad M. Mijwil


Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) bring together advanced sensor technology and innovative network algorithms, making them a highly relevant field of research. WSNs can be deployed in a variety of environmental monitoring and information gathering applications. This paper, clarify a significant Structure of parking management using WSN. The parking management system, a number of sensor nodes is placed in the parking field to indicate the occupancy of the parking space. The information on the state of the parking spaces is sent to a base station posted on the parking entrance, to guide the drivers. The sensor nodes are equipped with a battery providing the energy to ensure their operation. This energy resource is very important for the sensor nodes and has a direct effectiveness on the sensor nodes life and thus entire WSN. In this paper, Hybrid communication mode is offered to optimize energy consumption. The energy consumption is compared in the proposed parking management architecture with the three modes of communication; a multi-hop, single hop, and hybrid.
