Have you ever circled a large parking lot searching for an available space?
Ting-Yao Hu a Principal Systems Scientist in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, will discuss the progress of his collaboration with Pittsburgh International Airport to develop a smart parking system for improved parking in large parking lots. The effort uses camera observations to track cars and identify available, reserved and occupied parking spaces. A database will hold this information and an app for smartphones that will be activated when people pass enter the parking lot and will pass along information about the most efficient parking spaces. This smart parking partnership will be able to save travelers time and avoid the anxiety and the environmental impacts of searching for parking spaces.
