The objective of this work is to design, simulate and synthesize a dynamic space controller system. The concept of space allocation and management can be applied to more than physical space. It may also be taken in the contexts of memory, network or bus management. The management and allocation of any space depends mostly on the twin factors of demand and availability. Time, the size and amount of space available, as well as the number of requests for the spaces, must also be considered. The proposed design has the capability to monitor multiple spaces for vacancies, length of time occupied and to dynamically track the number and location of available spaces. This system is easily programmed to adapt to the user’s application and is modular in design in order to facilitate expansion. The specific problem addressed in this work is a parking lot controller.
