Searching for available parking spots in congested areas has arouse widespread and close concerns from academia and industry in recent decades. Plenty of related work has been done to design multiple parking systems, but few of them has taken fairness into account. In this paper, the authors propose a smart parking scheme towards fairness. The scheme is characterized by allowing parking lots to select prospective vehicles, in order to avoid the phenomenon called "Multiple cars chasing single spot". Moreover, the proposed scheme manages reservation period of each parking spot, therefore, time wasted on cruising for vacant parking space greatly reduces, and the smart parking system is guaranteed to be more equitable.
