In Smart Cities, vehicles can share intentions and retrieve information through IoT (Internet-of-Things) devices. This work proposes a reservation system that exploits communication between vehicles and city infrastructure to reduce the time a road user needs to find parking. The system is designed to manage the coexistence of next-generation vehicles, that communicate with city infrastructure and traditional vehicles that don't. We reconstructed an IoT-instrumented urban area using the MATSim simulator to evaluate the system. The proposed system reduces the parking search time of next-generation vehicles without disadvantaging traditional vehicles, making it a candidate for scenarios where both vehicle types coexist.
