This system enables drivers to manage payments in paid parking areas, allowing them to save time and money.


This will be possible when locating a retailer, navigating to a destination, returning to the vehicle to increase the validity period of the ticket and set the parking time. In the proposed implementation model, the user does not need to specify the amount of time the car will be parked, saving money by not overestimating the time period (paid parking time for time not used) and avoiding a possible fine for exceeding the prepaid time limit.

The system is created through the construction of two parts, each based on the design of a virtual organization of agents. The first is the server, consisting of a management application for metered parking areas in a city and a range of services designed for use by client applications. The second includes two mobile applications, one for the guard and the other for the parking areas for the driver.
