The Intelligent Parking Assistant (IPA) system is developed based on work done in the Danish ITS Platform project. The IPA system includes an Android app that helps the user chose, find and pay for parkings. The app uses information about parking lots fetched from a web service, including live availability, location and pricing schemes. The intelligence of the IPA system consists of automatically fetching parking lot information from the relevant service, automatically registering when the vehicle is stopped, evaluating whether the vehicle is stopped inside a payed parking lot, and automatically initiating the payment for the parking. The IPA app and the back end services, are published via the MOBiNET platform which is a European-wide platform supporting ITS services, and offering functionalities enabling easy migration of services. The migration is enabled by defining a common methodology for publishing services, covering interfaces in terms of what data formats are used, the coverage area of the service and other. Along with this, MOBiNET offers a service discovery interface, where B2B services can be discovered by other services via a M2M oriented RESTful interface. The IPA app and the back end services are implemented as a proof of concept utilizing MOBiNET, as a platform integration use case demonstration. IPA is evaluated in terms of correctness of the decisions made in during runtime and based on user input in a trial period, involving approximately 40 test users using the system on a regular basis.
