Journal Port Science Research <p>journal published by The University of Uruk, Iraq, in cooperation with Bryant University, USA and supported The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. Launched in the year 2018 as the official University of Uruk journal. The journal covers the topics include but are not limited. The journal adopted a policy of publishing four types of science every four months. The first issue is concerned with APPLIED MEDICAL SCIENCE specialties, the second issue is with TRANSACTION ON ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY AND THEIR APPLICATIONS specialties, the third issue is with LAW SCIENCES, and the fourth issue is with MANAGEMENT AND ECONOMICS SCIENCES. Journal has own managing EDITOR-IN-CHIEF, for each of these sciences.</p> <p>A partnership has been adopted with the Publons institution, to extend highly qualified peer review evaluators, and the journal counts with a wide pool of prestigious reviewers selected based on accordance with articles closely related to submitted manuscript awaiting evaluation. It is expected that the manuscripts advanced will be processed and proofread within three months. Journal have an Open Access (DOA) Publishing is a not-for-profit publishing practice, the journal is fully funded by Uruk University, Baghdad, Iraq and is available "free to publish and free to read". The manuscripts submitted to the journal are also subject to a linguistic and grammatical review and adopt the academic plagiarism detector system.</p> Journal Port Science Research en-US Journal Port Science Research 2616-6232 IoT Based Smart Parking System <p>A smart parking system based on the Internet of Things (IoT) can assist users in locating parking spaces in crowded regions by offering real-time availability updates online. This technology streamlines the car parking procedure, encompassing the entire process from vehicle entry to payment and subsequent leave. The system utilises NodeMCU, a set of five IR sensors, and a pair of servo motors to accurately detect the presence of cars and determine the availability of parking slots. Two infrared sensors are used to detect cars at the entry and exit gates, while three sensors are employed to detect the availability of parking slots. Servo motors operate gates by responding to sensor readings to initiate opening and closing actions. The data is made available on the Adafruit IO platform, enabling worldwide monitoring. The system utilises a total of five infrared sensors and two servo motors that are linked to the NodeMCU. The NodeMCU is responsible for overseeing the entire operation and transmitting data regarding parking availability and time to Adafruit IO.</p> Jaafar Ahmed Abdulsaheb Raghad Mohanned Nafea Waleed Ameen Mahmoud Al-Jawher Mohammed Lateef Hayyawi Copyright (c) 2024 Journal Port Science Research 2024-06-28 2024-06-28 7 3 .196 203 10.36371/port.2024.3.1
