The research undertook a feasibility assessment for a prospective Smart CCTV-based Parking system, anticipated to be a key component of Kampala's five-year plan. Tasks for the first year include master planning and business process re-engineering. The second year's tasks include system development, hardware installation, and the implementation of the Smart Parking system to cover all public on-street parking in Kampala (approximately 5,782 spaces, where a single camera can cover up to 250 spaces). Years three to five are dedicated to system maintenance. The financial outline for this five-year initiative is estimated at $2,632,086.
