Abstract: In order to make it easier for drivers to find a parking slot, optimise the resources of urban parking slots, and alleviate the problem of parking slot shortage, a distributed parking allocation algorithm was proposed. The algorithm collects the parking requests of user, this parking requests including the current position coordinate information of the users and destination coordinate information, the algorithm allocates parking spaces to users by analysing the available state of parking spaces, then return the parking route planning to the client. Compared with the traditional algorithm, the distributed parking algorithm has a higher ability to withstand pressure and global search capability, and it can ensure the real-time and validity of the parking information, so it can reduce the problem of the parking space shortage and unavailable parking space. The simulation results show that this algorithm can find the solution set more quickly and accurately under the circumstance of high demand. It also has application value and practicality.
