AbstractSino Parking Services Limited intends to support the smart city related research and development project and offering management support and sites for conducting the site surveys, site testing and pilot implementation. Car parks managed and operated by the Sino Parking Services Limited cover small, medium and large sizes, hourly, daily and monthly based. Parking spaces for both standard cars, lorry and electric vehicles, are available in these car parks, providing sufficient coverage for development considerations in different situations. With the sponsor from the Sino Parking Services Limited, the research team, formed by Dr George T.S.
