Shows how big data analytics can
- help motorists find free parking spaces
- municipal government optimise traffic flows and parking bays
- auto manufacturers improve UX
Access to data is the key ( ever was and is) with algorithms and machine learning to deliver insight to motorists.
One small but significant step to the smarter cities we all want
As part of partnership arrangements with car manufacturers Parkopedia receives information from connected navigation systems. "That data is already used to create traffic maps. We are using the same data from the same systems but instead of working out how quickly they are moving we work out how they are moving, so are they circling an area to find a space? We use that to figure out if there is a space available or not," he said. "That is just one example of how we leverage machine learning in a relatively dumb domain of parking."
