Real-Time Event-Based Information Collection from Street Parking

Efficient parking management requires collecting up-to-date information from parking facilities: sub-area occupancies, vehicle identities, vehicle locations, payments, and other. Considering car parks with access control and zone-specific vehicle counting, there are advanced solutions for collecting this information in high detail. However, the characteristics of street parking make it more challenging to gather such a real-time information repertory. Equipping streets with bay-specific sensors to get occupancy information is both expensive and against the trend of reducing the amount of road-side parking equipment. In this paper, the authors introduce an information system for street parking, which is based on real-time event-based data collection uniformly from both mobile payment and pay-and-display (P&D) machines. This makes it possible to introduce up-to-date guidance concepts for street parking as well as to implement novel methods for online parking enforcement.
