Laboratory for Digital Systems and Electrical Engineering (LDSE) organized a 3 day summer school where students created an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) based multistage parking barrier control system.
Participants built and integrated key components of a web based system using affordable hardware and open source software.
In short, this is what the developed application did:

The outcome of the summer school was satisfying as participants managed to built and integrate all the key components of the system and its main functionalities. Parking barriers were able to communicate among them in an independent and decentralized manner and exchange parking area access information.
However, many of the important functionalities are missing. For a real decentralized system there should be more instances of the particular modules. There should be more parking lots offering parking service to customers. Furthermore, these lots should compete with others to get a "job" that they are requested to do. Based on various parameters the client will send / announce a request to all the parking lots and then select the best offer. These functionality could, for example, be implemented using the blockchain technology.
We invite students interested in presented research area to come and tackle the problems of this new and exciting field. This could be in a form of a seminar or as a part of your batchelor, master or doctoral degree study.
