Abstract. Urban population growth, which is associated with a growing prevalence of private car usage, contributes to various contemporary urban issues, including air pollution and fuel costs. The shift of the transportation industry from internal combustion engines to electric vehicles is internationally recognised as an option for addressing these problems and making progress towards more sustainable transport. Makers of electric vehicles have considered many needs of their customers, including locating suitable parking spaces and charging stations. Currently, charging locations and parking spaces can be found with the help of methods based on human intelligence. However, the development of solar parking lots using smart management system is a revolutionary step in this regard, as it provides an optimal solution to internet of things-based (IoT-Based) parking spaces and locating a charging station for electric vehicles. This paper outlines the concept of Eco-parking platforms and discusses their potential implementation in cities. The outcome of this research can inform urban planners and entrepreneurs about how to implement this project and achieve sustainable transport.
