Community-based parking is the connected solution for finding available parking spaces on the street quickly. Via sensors and connectivity hardware, vehicles identify available spaces as they drive past. Drivers looking for parking benefit from the data acquired by the community, and can be guided to available spaces in a more rapid, convenient, and precise manner using information displayed to them in real time. Instead of a time-consuming search, vehicles can proceed directly to available spaces. This is an enormous benefit considering that each driver in Germany covers an average of 1,640 km each year while looking for parking spots. To accommodate the requirements of individual drivers, the results of the digital parking search can be filtered according to preset criteria such as parking space size or availability of electric charging stations.
