Welcome to our home page! We are Sixth Sense Technologies (SST for short),
a team of engineers at San Diego State University. This page of ours is
going to be used to document the progress of our project. Our team is a
mix of different engineers, 4 Computer Engineers and 2 Electrical Engineers, all
trying to create an automated parking manager.
What is the
project you may ask? Well, the project that SST is working on is a parking
manager. The parking manager will be servicing the Special Permit parking
spots that are located on the first floor of the San Diego State Engineering
building. Our system will help better serve the use of parking in that
area. Although the immediate scope of the project is to serve that small
section of the university, we would like to try to expand our modest goals so
that we can serve the whole university with our system.
In developing the system, we have thought of three different types of users
of these parking spots: fully authorized users, who will be authorized through a
radio-frequency identification (RFID) card reader, and can park in those parking
spots as they please, visitors, who must get a code from an authority figure of
the building/university, and enter that code into a key pad that is placed next
to the entrance of the engineering building, and a temporary user, who could
just drive up and park in the spot for a short amount of time, yet to be
determined by us.
